Discerning music lovers know that for "the most exciting chamber music in the United States" (Time magazine), there is no better ensemble than the Musicians from Marlboro. Now celebrating its 47th season, the acclaimed touring program offers not only joyous performances featuring unusual repertoire, but also invaluable experience to emerging artists. The group's Berkeley concert spotlights an array of distinguished musicians, including Peter Wiley, cellist of the Guarneri String Quartet, and the brilliant young Russian pianist Anna Polonsky—a personal favorite of Marlboro artistic directors Richard Goode and Mitsuko Uchida—who plays "with sweep, color and authority...the entire performance was vibrant and exciting" (New York Times).
Program: Haydn: Piano Trio • Mendelssohn: String Quartet in A minor, Op. 13 • Shostakovich: Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57
