Santa Fe Chamber Music Series

Thursday's at 1 p.m.
  • Hosted by Kerry Frumkin

   Join the WFMT Radio Network on a musical journey to the foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains as we present thirteen new, music-filled hours from the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. Over half a century, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival has become one of the world’s leading performing arts festivals, earning both critical praise and dedicated audiences for its lasting commitment to tradition, artistic excellence, and vision. Our series reflects the Festival’s high standards by offering a varied repertoire of superbly recorded concerts by today’s greatest classical artists.
     The 2019 Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival radio series features performances from the Festival’s 2018 summer season. Each broadcast hour typically contains two full-length works representing chamber music’s masterful repertoire. The Festival celebrates well-known, core works, and remains dedicated to lesser known composers and compositions, and to commissioning new works
     The series host is veteran WFMT announcer Kerry Frumkin. Composer and pianist Marc Neikrug, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival’s artistic director, provides insightful commentary. Many of the performers share remarks about their experiences at the Festival and the music they’ve played here.
