Grand Teton Music Festival “On Location” from Salt Lake City

TETON VILLAGE, Wyo. — Traditionally, the Grand Teton Music Festival (GTMF) hosts over two hundred top-notch classical musicians from around the country each summer to comprise the Teton Village-based Festival Orchestra. Ahead of the 60th season, GTMF turns the coin this winter with remote “On Location” performances in the home cities of the Orchestra musicians. This Thursday will feature GTMF musicians from the Utah Symphony within the resonant, 2800-capacity Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City.

In contrast to the livestream experience, the six concert productions are pre-recorded “live sets.” The Salt Lake performance will feature six musicians—violinist Madeline Adkins, violist Whittney Thomas, cellist Matthew Johnson, bassist Corbin Johnston, percussionist Keith Carrick on marimba, and pianist Jason Hardink. The music program will include a contemporary-leaning batch of compositions, detailed below.

JOAQUÍN TURINA Piano Trio, No.2, Op. 76
WILLIAM GRANT STILL Summerland
UNSUK CHIN  Piano Etude No. 4, “Scalen”
OSVALDO GOLIJOV Mariel
FRANZ SCHUBERT Piano Quintet in A Major, D. 667, “Trout” – Mvts 3, 4 & 5

Musicians have noted that the recording session inspired another level of listening, concentration and intense preparation. One musician noted spending over one hundred hours on a three-minute piece.

GTMF’s fourth “On Location” concert from Salt Lake City is 7 p.m. Thursday, February 25. Each free program will premiere on GTMF’s YouTube Channel and Facebook page and will remain up for on-demand viewing.
