Music Mountain 2012 Chamber Music Concerts

Series produced by Music Mountain

Series image

Music Mountain 2012 is a series of 16 complete chamber music concerts recorded at Music Mountain's eighty-third season in the summer of 2012. The concerts are produced into self contained programs lasting 1 hour 56 minutes. Stations may run all 16 as a series or license the ones they wish to put into a number of available dates.

These broadcasts are underwritten by Edward R. Hamilton bookseller, Falls Village, CT. On the web at edwardrhamilton.Com or through musicmountain.org.

Music Mountain is the home of the oldest continuing summer chamber music festival in this country. Founded in 1930 as the permanent home for the Gordon String Quartet, one of the leading string quartets of its time, Music Mountain is celebrating its 83nd anniversary in 2012.

The concerts are produced into self contained programs lasting 1 hour 56 minutes with the first being available approximately July 1 and successive concerts available weekly. If the concert is shorter than the 1 hour 56 minutes, all or part of a piece from a past season is included as an "historic encore." (The narration is such that the concert could be ended before the historic encore if desired, resulting in a variable length for each concert.)

A complete pdf timing sheet is available for each program
