Strings from Marlboro

Chamber musicians from the Marlboro Festival in Vermont perform Brett Dean’s evocative Epitaphs. Dean was a member of the Berlin Philharmonic for 14 years before beginning his flourishing compositional career. In summer 2017, he participated at the Marlboro Music Festival as both violist and composer-in-residence. This group—which also features Grammy-winning violist Kim Kashkashian and three dynamic young string players—pairs Dean’s Epitaphs with Dvořák’s beloved Quintet in E-flat Major.

This program is made possible in part by funding from The Gloucester County Cultural and Heritage Commission at Rowan College of South Jersey, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.


Schubert "Trout" Quintet

Grammy winner Eugene Drucker and Roberta Cooper are joined by NY Philharmonic principal bass Timothy Cobb, pianist Gili Melamed-Lev, and violist William Frampton for Schubert’s joyful “Trout” Quintet. This quintet is distinctive because the unusual string quartet instrumentation includes the bass. A youthful Schubert wrote this work  nicknamed “Trout” because the fourth movement consists of variations on a previous Lied “Die Forelle” (“The Trout”). Also on the program is “The Swan” from Carnival of the Animals by St. Saens.
