The Sun Valley Music Festival will offer a series of armchair concerts beginning this December and running through June 2021.

The all-new concert broadcasts and online talks will be titled “The Festival @ Home” and the concerts will take place off the 2021 Winter Season concerts at the Argyros Performing Arts Center.

All events will be broadcast free of charge at 6:30 p.m. Mountain Time on the Sun Valley Music Festival website at www.svmusicfestival.org and YouTube channel. Unlike past summer broadcasts, performances will be available for 48 hours to make it easier to tune in.

The series will be recorded at select venues in performing musicians’ hometowns.

“I’m very excited to create this new series of online concerts,” said Alasdair Neale, the festival’s music director. “Of course, my musician colleagues and I will miss gathering in person with you at the Argyros for our Winter Season. However, once again the Festival will use technology to bring you the music. We have just finished recording our first concert in Pittsburgh, PA, and can’t wait to share a beautiful piece by Mozart with you.”

Here is the lineup so far. Additional programs will be added later:

  • Tuesday, Dec. 8—Mozart’s “String Quintet in G minor.” Recorded in Pittsburgh, Pa., it features Festival Orchestra violinists Gabriel Lefkowitz and Julia Noon, viola players Joen Vasquez and Marylene Gingras-Roy and cellist Sis-Yan Darren.

    Widely considered the most heartfelt of Mozart’s string quintets, it is dark, melancholic and wistful. But it finishes with an ebullient G major Allegro.

  • Tuesday, Feb. 9—“Upbeat with Alasdair” talk looking at “The Big Picture.” The talk will explore the ways classical music celebrates and illustrates the human condition.
  • Tuesday, March 16—Bach’s “Cello Suite No. 2” performed by Principal Cello Amos Yang. One of the Six Cello Suites by Johann Sebastian Bach, Cellist Steuart Pincombe alludes to “diabolic little dances” and the Courante, which is “as quick as lightning, as if the devil is at your heels.”

Tips for accessing the broadcasts can be found at svmusicfestival.org/watch-online.
