Musicians from Marlboro Wrap Friends Cole Concert Series

| No Comments
Schubert 5tet.jpgThe Musicians from Marlboro, the touring extension of the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, will return to Greenwich Library on Sunday, May 2, at 4 p.m., as part of the Friends of Greenwich Library's Cole Concert Series. Five musicians will play works by Luigi Boccherini, Igor Stravinsky and Franz Schubert in the Cole Auditorium.

The program highlights exceptional young musicians together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation. This quintet will feature globally renowned artists, including violinist Hiroko Yajima, who was described as an "artist of real distinction" by The New York Times. A native of Tokyo, Yajima will be accompanied by David Bowlin, violin; Rebecca Albers, viola; Marcy Rosen, cello and Amir Eldan, cello.

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program has introduced many of today's leading solo and chamber music artists to American audiences; among them are pianists Richard Goode, Murray Perahia, Yefim Bronfman and András Schiff, violinists Pamela Frank, Jaime Laredo and Shlomo Mintz, flutist Marina Piccinini, clarinetist Richard Stoltzman and soprano Benita Valente. Now in its 45th season, Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the varied programs and spirit of music making so characteristic of Marlboro, prompting the Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as "a virtual guarantee of musical excellence" and the New York Times to call them "extraordinary... rising stars and music legends play side by side."

The performance is free and open to the public. Doors open at 3:30 p.m., show begins at 4 p.m. This concert is made possible by your contributions to the Friends of the Greenwich Library. For more information, please call the Friends Office at (203) 622-7938.
