<---(world premiere of David Ludwig's stirring Flowers in the Desert at the Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival)
If Marlboro came and went and passed you by this summer, not to worry. With the new (and we hope, annual) Lake Champlain Chamber Music Festival you have a second chance to enjoy some of the finest musicians in the region coming together for imaginative, artistically rich, programatically visionary concerts here at the end of the season.
I caught last night's concert of Schumann, Kurtág, Messiaen, and composer-in-residence David Ludwig's world premiere, Flowers in the Desert. Wonderful.
Last concert ('til next year!) is tomorrow's 3pm program with Schubert's C major Quintet, Dvořák's moody, dancing Bagatelles, and a recent Trio from Canada's R. Murray Schafer.
