TJB Weekend Edition: Music from the Jefferson Collection

We’ve documented previously (click here to read about it) that Thomas Jefferson was more than just an aficionado, but pursued what he loved, loved what he did, and was a near genius in almost everything he loved. Music was certainly one of those things he did/loved with a passion.

Monticello is offering a new CD which attempts to recreate specific music that Jefferson either played of listened to (kind of like hacking into his iTunes playlist!). They don’t include a track listing, but if I read the site correctly, Vivaldi‘s Violin Sonata is included on the disc.

To listen to a stream of Opus 2, no.3 by UVA’s own David Sariti click here.

For more about the CD go here.
