Marlboro Music Festival

August 1985
Yankee;Aug85, Vol. 49 Issue 8, p64
Rudolf Serkin, leader of Vermont's Marlboro Music Festival, says he and the festival's other experienced musicians learn as much from the less experienced young festival participants as the young adults learn from them. At 82, Serkin is the acknowledged world's master of chamber music, but the pianist still works hard to perfect his music.
