This celebrated New Mexican music festival is known for its 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 Festival remains dedicated to lesser known composers and compositions, and to commissioning new works.  Festival Artistic Director Marc Neikrug joins host Kerry Frumkin to provide commentary about the festival the musicians and the music they perform. 

Listeners will be taken on a musical journey to the foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains for 13 concerts from the 2016 Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.  The season features the Festival debut of Artist-in-Residence Peter Serkin (piano) and the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by Elizabeth Ogonek.
