22 / 23 SEASON

For Longy’s 2022–2023 event season, we invite you to leave all preconceptions at home.

Musical experiences can have any starting point. Whether born of complex ideas, emotional impulses, or spontaneous inspiration, every music maker begins wherever they are—which is exactly where they need to be.

Just as there’s no right way, no single starting line for becoming a musician, composer, or performer, there’s no one correct entry point for us as the audience. There’s no required reading for experiencing a piece of music, no prerequisite understanding or context to bring with you to a musical experience. You come to it from wherever you are.

In relinquishing our ideas of what a musical experience should be, we open ourselves to receiving and internalizing music in a way that is unique and true to each of us.

Every artist, composer, and musician represented in this season’s program took a different path to arrive at Longy, detours and scenic routes included. We hope the stories on our stages this year inspire you to begin your own new journey, no matter where you start. Allow yourself to begin wherever you are.

When there’s no set path to follow, you become free to begin anywhere.

Musicians from Marlboro Masterclass | Marcy Rosen, cello

Saturday • February 1, 2020   |   12:00 pm

Marcy Rosen, cello, has established herself as one of the most important and respected artists of our day. The New Yorker recently dubbed her “a New York legend of the cello,” and the Los Angeles Times has called her “one of the intimate art’s abiding treasures.” She has performed throughout the world and in all 50 of the United States. In recent seasons, she has appeared in China, Korea, and Cartagena, Colombia. Ms. Rosen has collaborated with the world’s finest musicians, including Leon Fleisher, Richard Goode, András Schiff, Mitsuko Uchida, Peter Serkin, and Isaac Stern, and with the Juilliard, Johannes, Emerson, Daedelus, and Orion Quartets. She is a founding member of La Fenice and the Mendelssohn String Quartet. She is artistic director of the Chesapeake Chamber Music Festival and since first attending Marlboro in 1975, she has taken part in 21 Musicians from Marlboro tours and performed in concerts celebrating the 40th, 50th, and 60th anniversaries of the Festival. A graduate of the Curtis Institute, Ms. Rosen is currently on faculty at Mannes College and is professor of cello at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, serving as artistic director of the Chamber Music Live series. In recent years Marcy Rosen has returned to the Marlboro Music School and Festival as a Senior Artist—as have other distinguished artists—to share what they gained from Marlboro as well their own new perspectives.
