Aspen Times Staff Report

The Aspen Music Festival and School has announced the schedule for its Winter Music Artist Recital Series of concerts for 2004. The series includes five concerts between January and March in Harris Hall.

The Emerson String Quartet, one of the Music Festival’s quartets in residence, will open the series with a performance on Jan. 20 featuring works by Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Ned Rorem. Violinist Robert McDuffie and pianist Christopher Taylor will play a program of music by Beethoven Bartok, Arvo Pärt and Robert Beaser on Feb. 12.

Pianist Yefim Bronfman is scheduled for Feb. 19 with a program of Beethoven piano sonatas and works by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev. A piano quartet comprising violinist Cho-Liang Lin, violist Daniel Phillips, cellist Gary Hoffman and pianist Leon Fleisher is set for an evening of Brahms on March 3.

The series concludes with 22-year-old pianist Jonathan Biss, recipient of the Avery Fisher Career Grant, making his Aspen debut on March 19. The concert, featuring pieces by Berg, Schumann, Beethoven and Leon Kirchner, will employ an experimental device that projects images of Biss’ hands on a screen above the stage. Biss’ performance will be the first in a new Music Festival tradition of presenting the Aspen debut of a young artist in the Winter Music series.
