Marlboro is widely credited for developing a new approach to leadership training in the performing arts, for igniting the explosion of interest in chamber music in the U.S., and for developing generations of musical leaders. The objects we've chosen to display reflect the joyousness, inspired playfulness, and history of this influential summer program. Marlboro was founded, in 1951, by the legendary pianist Rudolf Serkin—who served as its artistic director until his death in 1991—together with his father-in-law Adolf Busch (violin), Herman Busch (cello), and Blanche, Louis, and Marcel Moyse (violin/conducting and flutes, respectively). The world-renowned pianist Mitsuko Uchida is the artistic director today and has served in a leadership role at Marlboro for more than twenty years.
