Saturday, Feb. 25, 7:30 p.m.—RANDOLPH—Chandler Center for the Arts in Randolph presents Musicians from Marlboro Saturday evening, Feb. 25, 7:30 p.m.
Young British composer Thomas Adès’s work for string quartet, “Arcadiana,” is the centerpiece of a memorable program that also features piano trios by Haydn and Fauré and Brahms’s String Quintet in G Major, Op. 111.
The touring artists arriving at Chandler are Michelle Ross, violin; Scott St. John, violin; Emily Deans, viola; Maiya Papac, viola; Matthew Zalkind, cello; and Gabriele Carcano, piano. As the Washington Post, pointed out: “You may not know the names of all the artists, but Musicians from Marlboro is a virtual guarantee of musical excellence!”
Celebrating its 52nd season during 2016-17, the Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival, founded in 1951. The tours are noted not only for their joyous performances of both well-known masterpieces and unfamiliar works, but also for offering valuable experience to artists at the beginning of their careers. The touring ensembles have always given audiences a chance to hear the coming generation of major artists playing together with distinguished musicians. Early in their careers, the program introduced such pianists as Jonathan Biss, Yefim Bronfman,Jeremy Denk, Richard Goode, Murray Perahia, Andras Schiff and Peter Serkin, as well as members of numerous leading chamber ensembles.
Tickets for the Chandler concert are available online at chandler-arts.org or by calling the box office at 802-728-6464 weekdays, 12-5 p.m.
Chandler Music Hall is fully accessible and equipped for the hearing impaired. Chandler Center for the Arts is located at 71-73 Main Street, Randolph.
