Acclaimed Touring Company, Musicians From Marlboro, to Perform Schubert on April 6
The Friends Cole Concert Series is pleased to welcome back the popular Musicians From Marlboro touring program on Sunday, April 6 at 4 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium.
Says Alex Ross in The New Yorker, "Marlboro Music [is] a legendary classical-music institution that brings together younger and older players in pursuit of ideal chamber-music performances."
The Company's 2014 spring tour re-creates a memorable performance of Schubert's great Octet in F Major from a recent Marlboro Music summer concert, along with works by Reger and Dvořák. Artists include Tibi Cziger on clarinet, Natalya Rose Vrbsky on bassoon, Wei-Ping Chou on horn, Lucy Chapman and David McCarroll on violin, Dimitri Murrath on viola, Judith Serkin on cello, and Tony Flynt on bass.
A Washington Post review of Musicians from Marlboro said, "Impeccable ensemble work, unbridled energy and boatloads of virtuosity produced an electrifying performance," also calling the musicians, "Astoundingly gifted virtuosos...performances that radiate vitality and freshness."
Since 1951, Marlboro Music has played a leadership role in the development of chamber music worldwide, and in enriching the artistry and changing the lives of generations of exceptional musicians. Now celebrating its 49th season, the acclaimed touring program offers not only joyous performances featuring unusual repertoire, but also invaluable experience to emerging young artists. The Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont's Marlboro Music Festival. More information can be found at www.marlboromusic.org.
The Friends Cole Concert Series is made possible through the support of the Sylvia and Leonard Marx Foundation and the Friends of Greenwich Library and is open to all at no charge. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. For more information, please call the Friends Office at (203) 622-7938.
