Mitsuko Uchida plays Brahms during Marlboro Music’s second concert weekend

MARLBORO — Organizers at Marlboro Music said in a news release while they "are saddened by the extensive damage we are seeing in communities around the state" from the recent rainstorms and flooding, they are "grateful to report that the Potash Hill campus is fine, and the Marlboro season is progressing as usual."

They added that "the abundance of rainy days this summer has not dampened our musicians' spirits. The music has continued unabated, and Marlboro's resident artists have chosen six wonderful works to share with audiences next weekend from the more than 70 pieces being rehearsed."

On Saturday, July 22, patrons will enjoy a first half of music by Robert Schumann, followed by Brahms's Piano Quintet in F minor, Op. 34. Artistic Director Mitsuko Uchida and Elias Quartet cellist Marie Bitlloch will be joined in this group by three young string players: violinists Rubén Rengel and Julian Rhee and violist Natalie Loughran.

The program on Sunday, July 23, opens with Britten's Phantasy Quartet, Op. 2, followed by Ravel's String Quartet in F major. Concluding the weekend is Beethoven's Piano Trio in E-flat major, Op. 70, No. 2, with cellist Peter Stumpf (Johannes Quartet), violinist Isabelle Durrenberger, and pianist and 2023 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient Evren Ozel.

Some tickets are available for Saturday's concert. Tickets are $20–40 and may be purchased at or by calling the Marlboro box office at 802-254-2394.
