Tippet Rise Art Center announces 3rd season

Tippet Rise Art Center, located against the backdrop of Montana’s Beartooth Mountains, has announced the dates and highlights for its third concert season, July 6 – Sept. 8, 2018. The art center, which celebrates the union of land, art, architecture, and music, will present eight weeks of concerts featuring an impressive list of performers, some making their debuts at Tippet Rise and others returning as audience favorites. Complete details will be announced in early 2018.
 Returning Artists
Stellar performers returning to Tippet Rise include pianists Anne-Marie McDermott, Pedja Muzijevic, and Jeffrey Kahane, who astounded us in 2017 with his deeply moving improvisation on "America the Beautiful,” as well as violinist Caroline Goulding. We also welcome back two wonderful string quartets: the Escher String Quartet and the Dover Quartet.
 Returning performers also include Russian concert pianist Yevgeny Sudbin, whose Scarlatti recording made it into Forbes's Top 10 Best Classical Recordings of 2016.  In addition, also returning for her third season at Tippet Rise, is Taiwan native Jenny Chen, a concert pianist with numerous international music competition awards. 
Commissioning New Works
Season Three will include a new work by Aaron Jay Kernis—the second to be composed through a three-year commissioning program—performed by the Borromeo String Quartet. In 2020, Kernis will premiere the third commissioned work, a piece for small chamber ensemble and voice.
 Debut Artists
Among the artists making their Tippet Rise debuts are pianist Ingrid Fliter performing the complete Chopin nocturnes. St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble, drawn from New York City-based Orchestra of St. Luke’s, will perform works by Brahms and Robert and Clara Schumann. The Calidore String Quartet will be joined by Tara Helen O’Connor to highlight gems of the chamber music repertoire that feature flute, and will also partner with violinists Daniel Phillips and Aaron Boyd and pianist Anne-Marie McDermott, in Bach concertos for piano and 7 strings.
 It’s a Family Affair
Tippet Rise always encourages families to visit the art center and next season that extends to musicians.   Season Three includes cellist David Finckel and his wife, pianist Wu Han, both world-class performers as well the Artistic Directors of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Music@Menlo, and other enterprises that have earned them a reputation as “chamber music’s power couple” (The Wall Street Journal). Also returning to Tippet Rise next season is Jeffery Kahane, concert pianist and immediate past conductor of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, performing with his son, Gabriel Kahane, a dynamic young singer-songwriter whose music blends classical and rock.

Located in Stillwater County, Tippet Rise is approximately one hour southwest of Billings, two hours southeast of Bozeman, and two-and-a-half hours north of Yellowstone National Park.
