FESTIVAL BALTIMORE, JUNE 12-23
Festival Baltimore is a classical music festival based at University of Maryland, Baltimore County, featuring world-class performing artists and faculty. It's driving idea is to share the unique experience of hearing collections of works of the greatest classical composers of the past and present in their entirety. It is a rare opportunity to hear the complete works of a particular kind within one night performed by the same artist. Our festival provides a sequence of such nights with a wide range of styles and types of works, along with an opportunity for young aspiring students to work on and perform one of them.
The 2017 Festival features full cycles of composers of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries including works of the living composer George Walker, the first African American recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Composition. Each of the 7 concerts focuses on one specific genre - the piano, violin, viola or cello sonata, the etude, the piano quartet; or specific instrumentation - saxophone and piano.
Guests of the Festival Baltimore will be able to experience an elucidating retrospective look through the specific genre in a heritage of a given composer.
