BRATTLEBORO -- The Brattleboro Music Center will present Musicians from Marlboro, in the first concert of its 2012-13 Chamber Music Series, on Saturday at 7:30 p.m., at Centre Congregational Church, 193 Main St.
The Musicians From Marlboro touring program, celebrating its 48th season, was created as an extension of the Marlboro Music Festival. Saturday’s Musicians from Marlboro concert features Soovin Kim, Violin, Itmar Zorman, violin, Lily Francis, violin/viola, Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt, viola, Paul Wiancko, cello, Benjamin Jaber, horn, and Matan Porat, piano.
Musicians From Marlboro programs are generally built around a work performed in a recent summer season that so impressed Artistic Directors Richard Goode and Mitsuko Uchida that they felt it should be shared with others on tour. The gripping Ligeti Horn Trio was just such a piece, one that the artists explored for 101Ž2 weeks over two summers before giving a performance that had everyone cheering.
Coupled with a Haydn Quartet and the romantic Mendelssohn String Quintet in A Major, it makes for a diverse program, especially in the hands of violinist Soovin Kim and his young colleagues.
Known for his spectacular virtuosity as well as his probing musicianship, Kim has received some of the most prestigious honors in the world. He immerses himself in the string quartet literature each year as first violinist of the Johannes Quartet. He is also the founder and
