GTMF Season 58: The Haberfeld Chamber Music Series

JACKSON HOLE, WYOMING — May 28, 2019

In its 58th Summer season, the Grand Teton Music Festival proudly announces the addition of the Haberfeld Chamber Music Series—Tuesday nights at 6PM at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Jackson. Responding to the community’s desire for classical music concerts in town, and the musicians’ interest in additional performance opportunities with their colleagues, the series complements the popular Thursday Chamber Music Series. Both spotlight the artistry of GTMF’s world-class Festival Musicians and mix core classical repertoire with rarely heard gems. The Haberfeld Chamber Music Series concerts are one-hour without an intermission. 

Haberfeld Chamber Music Series: Beethoven and Liszt

Festival Musicians take the stage for this nature-inspired program. Beethoven’s enduring and pastoral “Spring” sonata is paired with solo works for piano, including an ocean-inspired piece by American composer Thomas Osborne. Pianist Jason Hardink concludes the program with virtuosic selections from Liszt’s Transcendental Études.

Haberfeld Chamber Music Series: Haydn, Pärt, and Bach

Haberfeld Chamber Music Series: Dvořák and Grieg

Haberfeld Chamber Music Series: Messiaen and Mozart
