Join us next summer for more great chamber music when we present our 2022 season from July 17 through August 22.
Four renowned ensembles—the Dover, Escher, FLUX, and Miami string quartets—return to the Festival to perform a wide range of repertoire, while the Chien-Kim-Watkins Trio makes their highly anticipated debut playing the full cycle of the groundbreaking Beethoven Piano Trios.
John Storgårds, chief guest conductor of the BBC Philharmonic and principal guest conductor of Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, conducts Knussen’s Requiem: Songs for Sue, featuring soprano Tony Arnold, and Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony in E Major, and he also plays violin in Shostakovich’s Piano Trio in E Minor. Conductor James Gaffigan, whose numerous appointments include serving as music director of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía in Valencia, Spain, and principal guest conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, makes his Festival debut on the 2022 season-opening program. Additional debuts include pianist Nicolas Namoradze and the Beijing Guitar Duo.
Festival-commissioned premieres in 2022 include works by Kaija Saariaho, Shulamit Ran, Detlev Glanert, and the two participants in the annual Young Composers String Quartet Project, and the Festival also presents the New Mexico premiere of a piano quintet by Artistic Director Marc Neikrug, performed by pianist Haochen Zhang and the Dover Quartet.
Details plus subscription and ticket information will be available on our website in January, so please stay tuned. We look forward to seeing you in 2022.
