TUCSON WINTER CHAMBER MUSIC 5-DAY FESTIVAL
Tucson’s “jewel of a festival” (WFMT Chicago) returns with programs designed to appeal to all chamber music lovers. Alongside the well-loved masterworks are the extremely worthy more-adventurous compositions that have been the hallmark of the Tucson Winter Chamber Music Festival since its beginning. This year‘s festival will feature the Jupiter String Quartet, the Sitkovetsky Trio, the woodwind quintet Windscape, and pianist David Fung, all artists of extraordinary ability.
The opening concert includes the Sitkovetsky Trio giving the premiere of a new piano trio by Julia Adolphe, and Windscape in their Tucson debut joined by David Fung to play Mozart’s Quintet for Piano and Winds. Cellist Isang Enders from the Sitkovetsy Quartet will join the Jupiter Quartet to end Friday’s concert with what many consider to be the most sublime chamber work ever composed, Schubert’s Quintet featuring two cellos, not to be missed! The Jupiter String Quartet will give the world premiere of Steven Taylor’s String Quartet in the final concert.
The lobby will be open during all festival events to bid on the Silent Auction, which will be drawn after the final concert on March 19.
The festive Celebration concert on Saturday will feature many of the artists in vigorous and more lighthearted repertoire followed by a chance to meet and converse with the musicians while enjoying great food.
