“Not only is the virtuosity of ‘Musicians from Marlboro’ . . .  consistently jaw-dropping, but the freshness, rich imagination and sheer vitality of their playing is enough to make even the most jaded concertgoer edge to the front of his seat.”

– The Washington Post

Musicians from Marlboro share a dynamic, collaborative approach to learning in a spirit of discovery – hearing insightful interpretations of chamber music masterworks and unfamiliar pieces played with great passion and joy.

 

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival, founded in 1951. Musicians from Marlboro tours are noted not only for their joyous performances but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers and touring with unusual chamber repertoire.

Works of Britten and Schubert shine in this program with equal intensity and tenderness. Schubert’s String Quartet, D. 87, written when he was only 16 years old, provides a youthful counterpoint to Britten’s String Quartet, No. 3, written within the final year of his life. The lyrical Auf dem Strom for tenor, horn, and piano offers a personal narrative of loss and memory that complements the Canticle’s public commemoration of the 1940 London Raids.
