Marlboro Music has played a major role in the development of three generations of musical leaders worldwide. For seven weeks each summer, concert artists of widely varied ages and backgrounds come together as one closely-knit musical family. They have the unique gift of unlimited time to study in great depth works from the vast chamber music repertoire.
Under the guidance of Artistic Directors Richard Goode and Mitsuko Uchida, the resident artists share with one another, and with audiences from around the world, the joyful and inspired results of their intensive collaborations. It was recently described by The New Yorker magazine as "the classical world's most coveted retreat."
