Hi dear grandchildren of Pasquale Tallarico;

For a few years, starting in 1966, I was a piano student of Mr. Tallarico when he taught at High Mowing School in Wilton NH towards the end of his life. He still played piano brilliantly.

Every Friday after lunch he would give these wonderful concerts, playing many of the classical pieces that have since then always been my favorites. (The Italian Concerto by Bach; Claire de Lune by Debussy; Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky--and many more). The lovely Big Room at High Mowing would be filled with listening teenagers and faculty members, and Mr. Tallarico would begin with his choice piece of music for the day, telling us a bit about the piece before he started playing. Then cascades of piano music would fill the air and pour into our listening ears, as the sunlight filled the room.

I am so grateful.
Leslie

Hi,
Just wanted to share my connection to Pasquale. I live in the house your grandmother, Anna Batchelder was raised in (97 Intervale Rd. Wilton, NH). The carriage shed has dozens of signatures on the ceiling and among them are Pasquale Tallarico and Anna Batchelder signed right next to each other. Can't quite make out the date but it looks like July 4th but can only make out the "191?". Assuming because Anna uses her maiden name that it is before 1915.

Almost seems Pasquale is haunting us now because every time we are in the car, at some point Steven Tyler (Tallarico) is singing away. I know Aerosmith is popular around here but...

I can forward some pictures if you have an E-mail I can send them to.
Regards, Mike Rodgers

I worked for a couple of summers up the road at Ruth Batchelder's orchard in Wilton, N.H. and remember having dinner at the Tallarico's a couple of times in the early 1950's and remember what a gracious and pleasant person he was - and his collection of pianos! Not sure what prompted me to look him up on the web, but delighted to find this memorial, thanks!

I was intrigued and impressed to read about Pasquale Tallarico. My grandfather's name was also Pasquale Tallarico, born in 1895 also in Calabria. He came to America around 1915, worked in WV for a few years and then settled in Bethlehem Pa. He was a successful business man and ran several grocery stores in the Bethlehem area. Vincent Tallarico

Hello,
My husband Bill and I recently purchased a house in Wilton Center, NH. We were told by some locals that your grandfather was a frequent visitor and possibly played at our home. It would have been during a time of one of the previous owners named either Charles Bushnell 1910- 1938 or Marjorie Moors. 1938 - 1962. We would love to learn more about the history of our home and if Pasquale possibly played here. Any information you have would be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much Joan
