Marlboro Music Festival

Marlboro Music Festival

Marlboro Music is widely recognized as the leading center for advanced professional training in music. Described by The New Yorker as "the classical world's most coveted retreat," it is where the concept of having master artists play together with exceptional young professionals was born. Under the artistic direction of pianists Mitsuko Uchida and Jonathan Biss, musicians share the inspired results of their intensive chamber-music collaborations in open rehearsals and weekend concerts from July 13 to August 11, 2019 on the campus of Marlboro College. Each week, groups who feel that they have achieved especially successful results recommend their works for performance. As a result of this dynamic scheduling process, concert repertoire or personnel are announced one week in advance. Audiences share in a spirit of discovery, experiencing exciting young musicians and hearing insightful interpretations of chamber music masterworks and unfamiliar pieces played with great passion and joy.
