Marlboro Month: Haydn
Franz Joseph Haydn's "Gypsy rondo" Piano Trio ends with a big ol' Hungarian style finale. We'll hear an exciting performance of it from the 1998 Marlboro Music Festival this morning, along with a set of songs by Johannes Brahms, who had a lifelong fascination with Hungarian music.

Marlboro Month: Beethoven
You may know Beethoven's Op. 11 better as the "Gassenhauer" Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano. In this morning's 2008 live performance from the Marlboro Music Festival we'll hear a clarinet substituting for the violin, giving the piece a very different character.
Bennington Chamber Music Conference
Even as the Marlboro Music Festival is celebrating its 60th anniversary
season, Vermont is the home of another music festival that's
now rounding out its 66th(!) season. This morning I'll talk with Phillip
Bush, Music Director of the Bennington Chamber Music Conference and
Composer's Forum in anticipation of their final concert tomorrow
Marlboro Month: Barber
Matthew Arnold's darkly evocative Victorian poem "Dover Beach" has inspired cultural references in everything from Ray Bradbury's "Farenheit 451" to Joseph Heller's "Catch-22". It inspired Samuel Barber too, and in 1931 he created a musical setting of the poem. This morning we'll hear Barber's "Dover Beach" in a live performance from last year's Marlboro Music Festival.
Marlboro Music: Strauss
Richard Strauss sure loved his wind instruments. The indelible result of
being the son of an excellent Horn player? ...Probably. This morning's
Marlboro Month feature piece is the Strauss Serenade in Eb for 13 Winds,
in an exciting - breezy! - live performance from the 2009 Festival.
Marlboro Month: Stravinsky
Is it a concerto, or a domestic residence? The answer is: both. We'll find out why and listen to Igor Stravinsky's "Dumbarton Oaks" in a live performance this morning as part of our ongoing Marlboro Month, celebrating the 60th anniversary season of the Marlboro Music Festival.
Marlboro Month: Dvorak
Antonin Dvorak's music appears frequently on the Marlboro Music Festival's public concerts - that's partly because it's so listenable, and also because it has so much to teach performers. This morning's "Marlboro Month" feature piece is the Dvorak Piano Quartet #2 in Eb, Op. 87.
Marlboro Month: Copland
VPR Classical's celebration of the Marlboro Music Festival's 60th
anniversary season continues today! We're going to hear a a live
Festival performance from July, 2006 of Aaron Copland's classic ballet about an Amish barn-raising: it's "Appalachian Spring" in
its original version for 13 instruments.
Marlboro Month: Mozart
Watercolors, Snow maidens, and Parachutes all make appearances in this morning's music. And we'll hear a live 2005 performance for the morning Marlboro Month feature as we continue to celebrate the prestigious Festival's 60th anniversary season.
Marlboro Month: Schubert
Yesterday afternoon's weekly concert at the Marlboro Music Festival opened with Franz Schubert's lilting song, "Auf Dem strom" - "On the River". We'll hear that same song in this morning's music, featuring a live recording from one of last season's concerts at the Festival.
Marlboro Month: Brahms
As our second week celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Marlboro Music Festival comes to an end, we'll hear a beautifully performed and produced recording of the Brahms Horn Trio from their 2005 season.
Marlboro Month: Bach
Something funny happened at the beginning of the Bach performance at the 1999 Marlboro Music Festival. You'll be able to hear the results in this morning's live performance of Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #3.

Marlboro Month: Dominick Argento

feel and sound, for being written in 1958. We'll hear them this
morning as part of VPR Classical's "Marlboro Month" - in a 1998 Festival
