Cosway – Four-Hand
Maria Cosway (1759-1838) was a cultured and inter-disciplinary woman who kept a popular salon. She was a composer, painter and keyboard artist and had a long relationship and correspondence with Thomas Jefferson. These two- movement sonatas can be performed by two harps, harpsichords, pianofortes or organs or any combination of the above. These pieces are truly duets and not merely melody and accompaniment.
