Solo artists collaborate in ensembles while established ensembles have the opportunity to perform in different groups with other distinguished musicians.”

The Festival’s scenic location, nestled amongst the Sangre de Cristo mountains, and dynamic programming have been bringing chamber music aficionados from around the world to Santa Fe since 1973.  Concerts take place in the intimate, historic St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art, The Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, and at Simms Auditorium at the Albuquerque Academy.  Subscription packages are available now from www.SantaFeChamberMusic.com or by phone (505) 982-1890.  Single tickets go on sale February 24.

In keeping with the Festival’s commitment to contributing new works to the chamber music repertoire, the Festival continues its Young Composers’ String Quartet Workshop for the second season. American composer Ryan Chase and Hong Kong-born, Hawaii-raised Tonia Ko will be the 2014 participants.  Each composer has written a string quartet to be premiered at the Festival August 8 in a program also featuring Julian Anderson’s Festival co-commissioned song cycle.  Prior to the performance, the composers will work intensively for a week with the members of the FLUX Quartet rehearsing and fine-tuning their compositions in preparation for the performance.

 
“Bach Plus” Series

An enduring and popular part of the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival is the five-concert “Bach Plus” series featuring works by Johann Sebastian Bach with music by his contemporaries and those later inspired by him.

The 2014 series opens July 26 with a solo piano recital by Benjamin Hochman (pictured), pairing Bach’s Partita No. 2 in C Minor, BWV 826 and Partita No. 4 in D, BWV 828 alongside a work by Italian composer Luigi Dallapiccola called Quaderno Musicale di Annalibera written in 1952.  This work was inspired by Bach’s Booklet for Anna Magdalena Bach and the music is composed around the motif B-A-C-H. 

The “Bach Plus” series also features Bach’s complete Brandenburg concerti being performed over two concerts at The Lensic Performing Arts Center August 16 (Nos. 3, 4 & 5) and August 23 (Nos. 1, 6 & 2.)  An all-Handel program will be performed as part of this series August 2 featuring Sasha Cooke performing La Lucrezia, Cantata for Mezzo-Soprano & Continuo, HWV 145.  A program featuring works by C.P.E. Bach, Biber, Marais and Telemann on August 9 is also part of this series.

All-Beethoven Programs

Works by Beethoven are woven throughout the Festival, but there will be two special all-Beethoven programs presented August 20 and August 21 at The Lensic Performing Arts Center.  Focused on the composer’s final works for each genre, the program opens with his Six Bagatelles for Piano, Op. 126 and his Piano Sonata No. 30 in E Major, Op. 109 performed by Joseph Kalichstein.  The program continues with a rare performance of a little-known work, his Fugue in D Major for String Quintet, Op. 137.  This short work will be performed by the Dover Quartet (pictured) and New York Philharmonic Principal Violist Cynthia Phelps. The program concludes with the String Quartet No. 16 in F Major, Op. 135 also performed by the Dover Quartet.

Yefim Bronfman performs Beethoven’s B-flat Major, Op. 97, “Archduke”, the last in the composer’s series of piano trios, alongside Martin Beaver, violin and Eric Kim, cello August 21 at The Lensic Performing Arts Center. Violinist Benjamin Beilman returns to the Festival performing the composer’s Violin Sonata No. 10 in G Major, Op. 96 with pianist Joseph Kalichstein. Also included on the program is Beethoven’s final cello sonata performed by cellist Ronald Thomas and Mr. Kalichstein. Both of these performances include a pre-concert talk by William Kinderman on Beethoven’s late works.

Festival Gala 2014

The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival will hold the first-ever Music and Wine Gala Tuesday, July 22. This highly anticipated social event includes an exclusive chamber music performance, an exquisite multi-course dinner with wine pairings and a silent auction of fine wines and other exclusive items.

The Gala is the Festival’s largest annual fundraising event and supports the annual summer season as well as the year-round musical education and outreach programs for children and adults in the greater Santa Fe community. In launching this new event, Steven Ovitsky said, “We plan to entice wine lovers with exquisite wine-paired cuisine alongside fine wines available for auction donated by individual collectors, restaurants and wine distributors. Winners of the silent auction will know they are supporting the Festival’s artistic and educational programs.”

The evening commences at the St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art with musicians William Preucil (violin), Mark Kosower (cello) and Jon Nakamatsu (piano) performing movements of Kodaly’s Duo for Violin and Cello, Op. 7 and Mendelssohn’s Piano Trio No. 1 in D Minor, Op. 49, among other works. Following the concert, guests will enjoy dinner and the silent auction at the luxury La Posada Resort and Spa.

Tickets are $600 per person and include a $375 tax-deductible donation to the Festival. To purchase tickets, please contact Allison Hooper, Event & Donor Relations Manager, at (505) 983-2075, ext 111 or [email protected]

ABOUT THE SANTA FE CHAMBER MUSIC FESTIVAL

Since its inaugural festival in 1973, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival has become one of the world’s preeminent music festivals, guided by a visionary spirit and dedicated to artistic excellence and innovation. Contributing to its magic is the Festival’s unique Santa Fe setting, nestled amid the timeless splendors of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Under the spirited artistic leadership of composer/pianist Marc Neikrug, the Festival invites scores of distinguished musicians, along with emerging young talent, to participate in its six-week season. The Festival encourages communication among composers, musicians, and audiences through premieres of Festival-commissioned works, the programming of works by living composers, and concerts featuring the composer as performer. Since 1980, the Festival has commissioned more than 60 works from such composers as Aaron Copland, Ned Rorem, Ellen Taaffe Zwilich, John Harbison, Gunther Schuller, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Steven Stucky and Brett Dean, among many others, thereby contributing significantly to the contemporary chamber music repertoire.

The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival has garnered enthusiastic acclaim not only from music lovers, but also from art aficionados with its 20-year series of collectible posters and program book covers of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings. The tradition continues with other artists, including Dan Namingha, William Lumpkins, Harry Fonsecca, Nils Hogner, Laura Gilpin, William Penhallow Henderson, and Emmi Whitehorse.  The 2014 artwork is by Dan Namingha.

Concerts take place in Santa Fe at the intimate, historic St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art, The Lensic Performing Arts Center, and in Albuquerque at the Simms Auditorium at Albuquerque Academy.
