Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival

Sante-FeOne of the world’s leading performing arts festivals, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival is known for its enduring commitment to tradition, artistic excellence, innovation, and vision. Our weekly radio series reflects the Festival’s high standards and varied repertoire by presenting superbly recorded concerts and recitals by some of today’s greatest musical artists.

The 2013 Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival radio series features performances recorded in 2012 in Santa Fe, New Mexico during this celebrated music festival’s 40th anniversary summer season. Each broadcast hour typically contains 50 minutes of music comprised of two works representing chamber music’s core repertoire. The Festival also remains dedicated to lesser known composers and compositions, and to commissioning new works.

Veteran WFMT announcer Kerry Frumkin hosts the series along with Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival artistic director, Marc Neikrug. Many of the performers provide additional commentary as they describe their experiences at the Festival and the music they’ve played here.
