Spanish romantic melodies from the 19th century performed on
instruments from the museum’s collection. This has now become an ongoing series

instruments in the MMA collection for their use in solo or duo recordings.
first performed at IUP in October 2009, this performance will include works
from the 17th century through the 20th and will also
