Musicians from Marlboro

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program was created as an extension of Vermont’s Marlboro Music Festival, founded in 1951.

…so fresh and full-blooded, so full of earthy vitality and sheer sensual pleasure, that it made you happy to be alive.
—Washington Post

Description and History

Musicians from Marlboro tours are noted not only for their joyous and thoroughly prepared performances but also for offering valuable touring experience to artists at the beginning of their careers and for featuring programs of unusual as well as beloved chamber repertoire.

Since their inception, the Musicians from Marlboro tours have introduced such great talents as Yefim Bronfman, Pamela Frank, Richard Goode, Jaime Laredo, Murray Perahia, Paula Robison, Sir András Schiff, Peter Serkin, Richard Stoltzman, Christian Tetzlaff, Benita Valente, and Harold Wright, among others. They have also included other exceptional artists now heard in the Brentano, Chicago, Emerson, Guarneri, Juilliard, Orion, Miami, Muir, Tokyo, St. Lawrence, and Ying Quartets as well as the Beaux Arts, Eroica, Mannes, and Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trios, and the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

“We’re always thrilled by Marlboro performers/performances– the spirit and the musical communication (among themselves and with the audience) go far beyond the technical prowess of each of the musicians. The concert was absolutely spellbinding.”
—Paula Forrest, artistic director, Ames Town & Gown
