VPR Classical’s celebration of the Marlboro Music Festival’s 60th
anniversary season continues today! We’re going to hear a a live
Festival performance from July, 2006 of Aaron Copland’s classic ballet about an Amish barn-raising: it’s "Appalachian Spring" in
its original version for 13 instruments.
Watercolors, Snow maidens, and Parachutes all make appearances in this morning’s music. And we’ll hear a live 2005 performance for the morning Marlboro Month feature as we continue to celebrate the prestigious Festival’s 60th anniversary season.
Yesterday afternoon’s weekly concert at the Marlboro Music Festival opened with Franz Schubert’s lilting song, "Auf Dem strom" – "On the River". We’ll hear that same song in this morning’s music, featuring a live recording from one of last season’s concerts at the Festival.
As our second week celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Marlboro Music Festival comes to an end, we’ll hear a beautifully performed and produced recording of the Brahms Horn Trio from their 2005 season.
Something funny happened at the beginning of the Bach performance at the 1999 Marlboro Music Festival. You’ll be able to hear the results in this morning’s live performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto #3.
The Marlboro Music Festival has
been delighting classical music fans for 60 years, and for many of those decades
photographer Clemens Kalischer has been documenting the celebrated musicians on
the school’s campus.
Enjoy a visit to two of New England’s longest-running and most respected music school/festivals: Yellow Barn in Putney and the Marlboro Music Festival. Listen Wednesday as VPR Classical’s Cheryl Willoughby co-hosts this very special "In Concert @ 8".
