Cellist Loretta O’Sullivan will perform at Pacem in Terris, located at 96 Covered Bridge Rd. in Warwick, on Sun., Jun. 11 at 5 p.m. The program will include music from the 18th century such as Guiseppe Maria Dall’Abaco’s (1710-1805) Caprice for solo violoncello no. 8 in G major, no. 2 in G minor, no. 4 in D minor, and no. 5 in B flat major.
During his long life, Dall’Abaco composed as many as forty sonatas and eleven caprices for solo cello. Each caprice explores a technical element of cello playing and provides musical delight. Loretta O’Sullivan has played with many of this country’s leading ensembles and orchestras. As principal cellist of Opera Lafayette, she has performed at the Kennedy Center and the Rose Theater in New York City.
