102nd Season -Thirty-eighth Concert
Eighteenth Annual Chamber Arts Series
Music from Marlboro
To music lovers throughout the world, the Marlboro Music Festival, under the musical direction of Rudolf Serkin, represents a unique summer gathering place for some of the most distinguished and gifted musicians of our time. During the past thirty years it has come to be recognized as one of the world's fully professional centers for advanced musical studies. Founded in 1950 by three families bearing the famous musical names of Serkin, Busch, and Moyse, this Festival, in its rural Vermont setting, attracts both young professional musicians and mature artists. For two months each summer, they study in depth and play the vast repertoire combining piano, strings, woodwinds, brass, and voice, in a place and atmosphere free from pressures of professional concert life--a place where, British critic Peter Hayworth said, "great musicians recharge their batteries." More than 100 works, requested by the musicians, are rehearsed each week. In the evenings informal concerts are sometimes given for fellow participants, and weekend concerts allow the public to share in the results of these musical collaborations.
Over the years Marlboro's successes have become well-known around the world. Many established artists have contributed to Marlboro, among them Pablo Casals who, for thirteen summers from 1960 until his death in 1973, participated as guest artist to conduct the Festival Orchestra and give cello master classes. In 1965 Marlboro musicians were selected for a State Department-sponsored tour of Europe and the Near East. Four outstanding young American ensembles--the Guarneri, Cleveland, and Vermeer String Quartets, and the Orpheus Trio--can trace their origins to summers at Marlboro. Also, many members of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center have been closely affiliated with the Festival.
In order to extend Marlboro activities into the regular concert season, "Music from Marlboro" was created in 1965. Each summer at the Festival approximately twenty-five musicians are selected to form four touring groups, taking time from their regular concert activities to participate in the Marlboro tours which visit over 50 cities in the United States each year. Many of today's leading solo and chamber music artists have been part of the touring program--among them are pianists Richard Goode, Ruth Laredo, Murray Perahia, and Peter Serkin; violinists James Buswell, Isidore Cohen, Miriam Fried, and Jaime Laredo; cellist Leslie Parnas, and flutist Paula Robison.
Tonight's concert is the fifth performed in Ann Arbor by a "Music from Marlboro" ensemble.
