A lis­ten­ing tour de force

Pasatiempo - - PASATIEMPO -

This week the Santa Fe Cham­ber Mu­sic Fes­ti­val be­gins it 45th sea­son, which runs from Sun­day, July 16, through Aug. 21. Dur­ing that span, it will present 36 main­stage con­certs in town, not count­ing sev­eral youth recitals and a few run-out en­gage­ments in Al­bu­querque. The sea­son’s reper­toire in­cludes some new or ex­otic pieces mixed in among much-loved clas­sics. An es­pe­cially un­usual lis­ten­ing op­por­tu­nity ar­rives on July 28, when the FLUX Quar­tet plays the String Quar­tet No. 2 by Mor­ton Feld­man, a work that is gen­er­ally con­sid­ered to be the long­est in the cham­ber-mu­sic reper­toire. On the cover is a 1976 por­trait of Feld­man by Betty Free­man.
