Temporada de verano

Extraordinary, admission-free performances, world-class musicians—and truly something for everyone: Julio 29-Agosto 22, 2024

Opening Night with Meechot Marrero

Pabellón de Sun Valley 300 Dollar Rd, Sun Valley, Idaho, Estados Unidos

The Festival’s 40th Season opens with a fanfare written by the composer Timothy Higgins especially for this occasion! Then soprano Meechot Marrero returns to Sun Valley to sing a few of her favorite arias–fans may remember her passionate performance in the Festival’s gala concert, Carmina Burana, in 2022. The concert closes with Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony. Prokofiev himself gave it the nickname, as he intended to write a symphony in the classical style, while “absorbing things from what was new in music.” It’s a delightful, sunny piece, and one of the most-performed works of the 20th century.

Piazzola’s Four Seasons with Mozart’s Linz Symphony

Pabellón de Sun Valley 300 Dollar Rd, Sun Valley, Idaho, Estados Unidos

The Argentinian composer Astor Piazzolla, most famous for his tangos, composed The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires in the late 1960s. Festival Assistant Concertmaster Juliana Athayde will take the lead on these four lovely pieces that quote and improvise on Vivaldi’s masterpiece. Following, Associate Conductor Stephanie Childress returns to the podium to lead Mozart’s “Linz” symphony. On the way from Vienna to Salzburg, Austria, Mozart stopped to visit a friend in Linz, only to learn that said friend had committed him to performing a symphony there in four days. The only problem was that he didn’t have a symphony with him. So, being Mozart, he wrote one. It’s brilliant, of course!

Meechot Marrero and Festival Musicians play Schubert

Pabellón de Sun Valley 300 Dollar Rd, Sun Valley, Idaho, Estados Unidos

Schubert wrote “The Shepherd on the Rock” as a favor for a friend–a soprano–who asked for a piece that would allow her to express a wide range of emotions. Meechot Marrero will sing the vocal part, accompanied by piano and clarinet, with the latter sometimes imitating and other times enhancing her voice. Schubert’s Trout Quintet is one of his most beloved chamber works, and for good reason–it’s full of cheerful, beautiful, and catchy melodies.

Andy Akiho’s Cello Concerto

Pabellón de Sun Valley 300 Dollar Rd, Sun Valley, Idaho, Estados Unidos

It’s not often one gets to hear the world premiere of a new concerto, so mark your calendars for this concert helping celebrate the Music Festival’s 40th Anniversary! Back in 2021, the Festival commissioned “trailblazing” (Los Angeles Times) and Grammy-nominated composer Andy Akiho to write a cello concerto for Jeffrey Zeigler, the former cellist of the famed Kronos Quartet. Following the concerto, the celebration will continue with Handel’s Music for the Royal Fireworks, composed in 1749 to celebrate the end of the War of the Austrian Succession.

"Es donde nos reunimos todos: es el centro de la vida del pueblo

Con la cesta de picnic, las sillas plegables, la manta y nuestros dos hijos a cuestas, encontramos "nuestro sitio" en el césped y nos acomodamos para lo que sabemos que será una maravillosa velada de música, buena comida y charla con viejos y nuevos amigos. Mientras la gloriosa música nos envuelve y las montañas empiezan a cambiar de color en el fondo, disfrutamos de una maravillosa noche en familia. Y es gratis".

Asistente a la Sinfonía de Verano de Sun Valley

"Todo confluye aquí para crear experiencias musicales realmente conmovedoras, tanto si se es un devoto aficionado a la música clásica como si sólo se desea pasar una gran velada.

La elevación, las montañas, los árboles y el cielo infinito -combinados con la más acogedora de las comunidades- nos inspiran a mí y a todos nuestros músicos a dar vida a las ideas y pasiones de los compositores de todos los siglos".

-Alasdair Neale, Director musical
