Both Bartók’s String Quartet No. 4 and Dvořák’s Piano Trio in F Minor were performed at Marlboro in 2016 with Soovin Kim as the senior participant. These works go on tour with that summer’s participants and a program rounded out by Dvořák’s Miniatures, Op. 75a.

After a successful East Coast tour in 2018, the Ravel Piano Trio returns for a performance on the National Tour circuit. Rounding out the program are Haydn’s Piano Trio in C Major, Hob.

Purcell’s Chacony in G Minor, Z. 730, serves as the inspiration for the third movement of Britten’s luminous second string quartet, which was written to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Purcell’s death. The program also includes a delightful Haydn trio and Dvořák’s inimitably joyous string sextet, a perennial Marlboro favorite.

The final program of the season begins with Schubert’s unfinished Quartettsatz, D. 703, followed by Bartók’s String Quartet No. 5. Concluding the program is Brahms’s Piano Quartet in G Minor, Op. 25.
