A new addition to Saugerties Pro Musica’s world-class spring schedule is the cello & guitar duo, Maruri & Jones, returning after a several-year hiatus to perform on Sunday, March 10, at 3 p.m.
The Spain-based musicians enjoy an active concert and recording career as one of the only established cello / guitar duos in the world. They have performed for the Saugerties Pro Musica audience three times over the course of their career. In fact, whenever they plan a tour of North America they include us in their schedule. This season’s tour includes Manhattan, Saugerties, Toronto and Chicago.
Their program is a mix of classics and modern pieces with both classical and folk roots:
- BENEDETTO MARCELLO, (1686-1739) "SONATA in G ", in four movements
- Franz Schubert ( 1797- 1828) "Sonata Arpeggione", in three movements
- DREW HEMENGER, (b. 1968) "SONGS FROM AMERICA" after traditional American Folk Songs, in four movements
- ERIK MARCHELIE (b.1957 ) Don Quijote y Dulcinea
- MANUEL DE FALLA, (1876-1946) "SUITE ESPAÑOLA", in two movements

Saugerties Pro Musica is a not-for-profit, 17 year-old concert series in Saugerties, New York. We offer top musicians at the height of their careers for the very reasonable price of $12. You would have to pay two or three times that anywhere else - if anywhere else could even get them! Spend an afternoon with friends listening to some great music, then join the musicians in conversation at the free reception afterwards. See you Sunday.
