Concert Program VI

Chamber Music Now

The most exciting and relevant conclusions to Music@Menlo’s Unfolding of Music festivals have been concerts of music by living composers, bringing the art of chamber music to the present day. This summer, we will hear works by composers born between 1957 and 1981, all of whom are developing the art form with stunning success. From the widely renowned Tan Dun (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) to a wildly popular newcomer, Jessie Montgomery (Chicago Symphony’s 2021 Composer-in-Residence), this program hits highlights of the existing chamber repertoire and proudly introduces two new works co-commissioned by the festival.

This concert is preceded by a free Koret Young Performers Concert at 12:30 p.m. by the 2023 Young Performers Program artists.
