Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Wednesday at 9:30 pm*


The Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival celebrates talent; and some Festival artists possess more than one. The program’s co-host and Festival Artistic Director Marc Neikrug not only gets around on the piano, but is a respected composer.

“The only way I can envision writing anything is for my ideal. So it’s my ideal string quartet, my ideal pianist, my ideal flutist – whatever. And I’ve been really lucky in my life that a lot of times, those are the people who actually show up and play the pieces.”

—Marc Neikrug

The program also presents a Piano Quartet by Robert Schumann, played by William Preucil, violin; Steven Tenenbom, viola; Eric Kim, cello; Anne-Marie McDermott, piano

Marc Neikrug discusses donning the composer’s hat with WFMT’s Kerry Frumkin:
