April 23, 2001

WILLIAMSTOWN, MA, (April 23, 2001) - Enthusiastic performances by rising stars of chamber music are the hallmark of Musicians from Marlboro, which makes its annual appearance at the Clark Art Institute on Tuesday, May 1, at 8:00 p.m. The ensemble of young musicians from the renowned Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont will play Mozart's Piano Trio in B-flat, K. 502, Hindemith's String Trio No. 2, and Brahms's Trio in E-flat Major for Piano, Violin, and Horn, Op. 40. Tickets are $17 ($15 for members) and are available at the Clark museum shop or by calling 413-458-2303, extension 324.

Musicians for the May 1 performance will be Todd Phillips, violin, Jonathan Bass, piano, Kirsten Johnson, viola, David Jolley, horn, and Margo Tatgenhorst, cello.

The Clark presents an ensemble from Marlboro every spring. Last year's concert was hailed by Berkshire Eagle critic Andrew L. Pincus for the "seeming effortlessness" of its performances, "...each exquisitely detailed. The music was never pushed. Rather the players seemed to follow it along hills, valleys, and streams as congenial as those of Vermont." Musicians from Marlboro offers exceptional young musicians from the summer Festival together with seasoned artists in chamber music programs of rarely-heard works and masterpieces of varied instrumentation. Each year, more than twenty-five artists take time from their regular activities to bring Musicians from Marlboro concerts to cities around the country. The Musicians from Marlboro touring program has introduced many of today's leading solo and chamber music artists to American audiences, including pianists Richard Goode and Andreas Schiff, violinist Jaime Laredo, flutist Paula Robison, and soprano Benita Valente. Now in its thirty-sixth season, Musicians from Marlboro offers audiences across North America a sample of the varied programs and spirit of music making so characteristic of Marlboro, prompting the Washington Post to describe Musicians from Marlboro as "a virtual guarantee of musical excellence."

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free through May.  For more information call 413-458-2303 or visit www.clarkart.edu.
