The Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val launches its 43rd sea­son this week­end. Many fa­mil­iar faces will ap­pear un­der its aus­pices dur­ing the com­ing five weeks, in con­certs that range from solo recitals to the fes­ti­val’s high­light on its penul­ti­mate evening, a per­for­mance of Mes­si­aen’s large-scale Des canyons aux étoiles … , in which con­duc­tor Alan Gil­bert will lead 44 in­stru­men­tal­ists. One of the top picks in the open­ing week is Tues­day’s noon recital by pi­anist Jon Kimura Parker (pic­tured on the cover), who will play clas­sic works by Beethoven and Schu­bert plus a new fan­tasy on themes from The Wiz­ard of Oz.
