Pi­anist Anne-Marie McDer­mott ex­erts an an­chor­ing pres­ence in the mu­si­cal life of the Moun­tain Time Zone. Since 2011 she has served as artis­tic di­rec­tor of the Vail Val­ley Mu­sic Fes­ti­val up Colorado way, and in re­cent years she has ap­peared on the ros­ter of the Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val more of­ten than not. That’s just part of the story. She also heads the Ocean Reef Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val in Florida and Avila Cham­ber Mu­sic Cel­e­bra­tion in Cu­ra­cao, has been an artist mem­ber of the Cham­ber Mu­sic So­ci­ety of Lin­coln Cen­ter since 1995, ap­pears as a soloist with many or­ches­tras, keeps busy in the record­ing stu­dio, and tours as a mem­ber of both the McDer­mott Trio (with her vi­o­lin­ist and cel­list sis­ters) and the pi­ano quar­tet Opus One (which will open Santa Fe Pro Mu­sica’s sea­son, on Sept.18). Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val au­di­ences may catch her twice this week. At 6 p.m. on Sun­day, Aug. 16, at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.), she is joined by the Mi­ami String Quar­tet for the Pi­ano Quin­tet of Béla Bartók, an in­fre­quently vis­ited work from the com­poser’s early years. On Tues­day, Aug. 18, at noon, at St. Fran­cis Au­di­to­rium (New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art, 107 W. Palace Ave.), she de­votes her pro­gram to Bach: his English Suite in A mi­nor (BWV 807) and Par­tita in C mi­nor (BWV 826), as well as the Cha­conne from his Par­tita No. 2 in D mi­nor for Un­ac­com­pa­nied Vi­o­lin (BWV 1004), as re­cast for the key­board by Fer­ruc­cio Bu­soni. For tick­ets ($12 to $78 for Aug. 16; $22 for Aug. 18; call for avail­abil­ity), visit Tick­ets Santa Fe at the Len­sic (505-988-1234, www.tick­etssantafe). — James M. Keller
