Santa Fe, NM – Artistic Director Marc Neikrug and Executive Director Steven Ovitsky eagerly anticipate the 42nd Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival running July 20 through August 25 in Santa Fe, New Mexico.  This summer’s six-week event features the Festival’s hallmark blend of contemporary music alongside masterworks of the chamber music repertoire performed by many of the world’s top musicians.  Executive Director Steven Ovitsky comments, “Each season we are excited to welcome new artists and composers to the Festival as part of the family we have created in Santa Fe.  The setting provides a rare opportunity for artists to build relationships in a fast-paced and vibrant setting. Solo artists collaborate in ensembles while established ensembles have the opportunity to perform with other distinguished musicians.”

HIGHLIGHTS

This year’s Festival highlights include a solo recital by 2014 Artist-in-Residence, pianist Yefim Bronfman, performing Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No. 6 and Marc Neikrug’s Passions, Reflected. Mr. Bronfman will be seen in performances including Beethoven’s last piano trio, “Archduke”, and Brahms’s Piano Quintet in F Minor this season.

Also prominently featured this season are Festival-commissioned works by Julian Anderson, Wigmore Hall’s Composer in Residence; a U.S. premiere by Brett Dean performed by soprano Tony Arnold and the Orion String Quartet; and Lowell Liebermann accompanies mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke in the New Mexico premiere of his song cycle, Four Seasons.

The Festival continues its Young Composers String Quartet Project for the second season, welcoming participants Ryan Chase and Tonia Ko for world premieres performed by the FLUX Quartet. The popular “Bach Plus” series includes all six Brandenburg concerti performed over two concerts and a solo recital by pianist Benjamin Hochman. Two all-Beethoven programs with Joseph Kalichstein, Yefim Bronfman, Benjamin Beilman and the Dover Quartet, featuring the composer’s final chamber works, round out the season’s major highlights.

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 since 1998, 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.
