From the 18th century to the 20th century, this program showcases the variety of chamber music repertoire characteristic of Marlboro. It includes Boccherini’s delightful String Quintet in E Major, Op. 11, No. 5 and two great works that received thrilling performances a couple of summers ago: Bartók’s String Quartet No. 2 and Ravel’s Piano Trio in A Minor.
Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the spirited music-making that is characteristic of Marlboro, prompting The Washington Post to describe the touring group as “…so fresh and full-blooded, so full of earthy vitality and sheer sensual pleasure, that it made you happy to be alive.”. And according to the Chicago Sun-Times, “the secret is a sense of joy…apparent from the very first note.”
Now in its 53rd season, Musicians from Marlboro, the touring extension of the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont is noted not only for their joyous and thoroughly prepared performances but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers and for featuring programs of unusual as well as beloved chamber repertoire.
