Led by artistic directors Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, Marlboro Music gathers some of the world’s best performers to the rural town of Marlboro, Vermont where exceptional young musicians play side-by-side with leading artists. Since its founding 1951 by eminent pianist Rudolf Serkin, Marlboro Music has welcomed generations of leading musicians including Pablo Casals, Eugene Istomin, Isidore Cohen, the Guarneri String Quartet and composers such as Samuel Barber, Elliott Carter, Aaron Copland, and George Crumb.

Featured on this concert is Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Shulamit Ran, who was in residence at Marlboro in 2018 and worked extensively on her music with Marlboro artists in Vermont. Alternating between contemplation and ecstasy, Ran’s Moon Songs for soprano, flute, cello, and piano are at the center of this program, which also includes W.A. Mozart’s Divertimento in E-flat Major, K. 563, and Joseph Haydn’s String Trio in G Major, Op. 53, No. 1.

This concert will feature Marlboro touring artists Kristina Bachrach, soprano; Giorgio Consolati, flute; Joseph Lin, violin; En-Chi Cheng, viola; Brannon Cho & Matt Zalkind, cello; and Lydia Brown, piano.

This event will be broadcast live from the Music Room on Thursday, February 16 at 6:30 PM. To reserve a ticket, follow the link above to register.

Since its founding in 1951, Marlboro Music has transformed the world of chamber music and played a vital role in developing generations of new musical leaders. Marlboro was created by eminent pianist Rudolf Serkin—its artistic director until his death in 1991—and co-founders Adolf and Herman Busch, and Marcel, Blanche, and Louis Moyse.

Over the ensuing decades, Marlboro was a vital gathering place and musical oasis for many renowned artists of the late 20th century, including cellist and conductor Pablo Casals; pianists Mieczysław Horszowski and Eugene Istomin; violinists Pina Carmirelli, Isidore Cohen, Felix Galimir, and Sándor Végh; cellists Madeline Foley and David Soyer; clarinetist Harold Wright; and soprano Benita Valente. Marlboro has also attracted acclaimed composers including Leon Kirchner (who helped to establish a resident composer program here in the 1970s), Samuel Barber, Elliott Carter, Aaron Copland, George Crumb, Luigi Dallapiccola, George Perle, and Gunther Schuller.

Since the Guarneri String Quartet formed at Marlboro in 1964, former participants have formed or joined many outstanding ensembles, including the Brentano, Cleveland, Emerson, Johannes, Juilliard, Mendelssohn, Orion, St. Lawrence, Takács, Tokyo, Vermeer, and Ying Quartets; the Beaux Arts, Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson and Mannes Trios; TASHI; the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center; and other prominent festivals, series, and summer programs. Other Marlboro artists are now principal chair members of leading symphonic and opera orchestras world-wide; are among today’s most sought-after recording and solo artists; or are acclaimed teachers at prominent conservatories and universities.

Today, Marlboro continues to thrive under the leadership of Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, remaining true to its core ideals while incorporating fresh ideas and inspiration.
