GREENWICH, Conn. -- The Friends Cole Concert Series presents the latest Marlboro touring group in the Cole Auditorium at the Greenwich Library on Sunday, Jan. 17.
The winter tour program is built around Krzysztof Penderecki’s brilliant Quartet for Clarinet and String Trio. Penderecki was the 2013 Marlboro music composer in residence.
This inspiring concert also includes Beethoven’s String Trio in C Minor, Op. 9, and Brahms’s Clarinet Quintet in B Minor, Op. 115. Artists include Emilie-Anne Gendron and David McCarroll on violin, Daniel Kim on viola, Marcy Rosen on cello and Anthony McGill on clarinet.
Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the spirited music-making that is characteristic of Marlboro, prompting The Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as “a virtual guarantee of musical excellence." And according to the Chicago Sun-Times, “the secret is a sense of joy…apparent from the very first note.”
Now in its 51st season, Musicians from Marlboro -- the touring extension of the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont -- offers talented young professional musicians the opportunity to perform together with seasoned artists in varied chamber music programs. Each program is built around an exceptional work performed in a previous summer. The resulting ensembles offer audiences the chance to both discover seldom-heard masterworks and enjoy fresh interpretations of chamber music favorites.
The Friends Cole Concert Series is made possible through the support of the Sylvia and Leonard Marx Foundation and the Friends of Greenwich Library.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 4 p.m. For more information, click here, or call the Friends Office at 203-622-7938.
