From Old World to New features works from the great musical centers of Venice and Vienna alongside one of the earliest known classical chamber works written by an American composer. Music by Leopold Hofmann, Maddalena Lombardini Sirmen, John Antes, and Paul Wranitzky will be played. The concert title references the fact that the charming trio by Leopold Hofmann would have been lost to us, had not the young composer Johann Peter painstakingly hand-copied it, and many other treasured scores, while a seminary student in Germany. All were brought with him from the Old World to the New when he came to work among the American Moravian settlements in 1770.
