Is it a concerto, or a domestic residence? The answer is: both. We’ll find out why and listen to Igor Stravinsky’s "Dumbarton Oaks" in a live performance this morning as part of our ongoing Marlboro Month, celebrating the 60th anniversary season of the Marlboro Music Festival.
Antonin Dvorak’s music appears frequently on the Marlboro Music Festival’s public concerts – that’s partly because it’s so listenable, and also because it has so much to teach performers. This morning’s "Marlboro Month" feature piece is the Dvorak Piano Quartet #2 in Eb, Op. 87.
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.
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.
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".
