Editorial Reviews

Founded by illustrious musicians including pianist Rudolf Serkin, the Marlboro Festival's been an incubator for talented young musicians who rehearse and perform with established veterans in what Serkin proudly described as "a republic of equals." This 50th anniversary album is drawn from concerts recorded between 1969 and 1997 in sound that ranges from very good to excellent. Repertory reflects Marlboro's huge range, from the rare four-hand piano Marches by Beethoven to compelling contemporary works by Kurtág and Ligeti. All performances are on the highest level. The Verdi String Quartet gets a warmly thrustful reading from a foursome led by one Serkin's favorite violinists, Pina Carmirelli, and the first disc ends with a perceptive early Mendelssohn masterpiece, the Quartet, Op. 13. The highlight of the set is a memorable Bartók Divertimento for Strings with a string orchestra composed of top chamber and orchestral players conducted incisively by Sandor Vegh. And the Kurtág works were rehearsed under the composer's watchful eye. This is more than a simple tribute to the festival, although visitors to the festival in southern Vermont will want it as a souvenir. For the rest of us, this is an eminently desirable collection of excellent performances of great music. --Dan Davis
