Marlboro Month: Dvorak

08/04/11 8:00AM

Antonin Dvorak, composer extraordinaire
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 - particularly string players, since Dvorak was himself a violist. This morning's "Marlboro Month" feature piece is the Dvorak Piano Quartet #2 in Eb, Op. 87. We'll also hear violinist Arnold Steinhardt talk about his first time coming to the Festival as a participant, before becoming one of the founding members of the legendary Guarneri Quartet.
