BRAVO! VAIL MUSIC FESTIVAL NEWS “INSIDE THE MUSIC”; Anne-Marie McDermott, Bach & Shostakovich

July 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Presented by US Bank
July 14, 2020
Anne-Marie McDermott, Bach & Shostakovich

This Week’s Episode

As the long-term reality of sheltering at home sank in, Anne-Marie McDermott found herself struggling. She turned to music and found new life and meaning in a piece she was intimately familiar with, Bach’s Goldberg Variations. It became a way to soothe her soul during the difficult days at home in New York City. As the months passed, she began to look at her conflicting emotions and sought out music that could speak to the solitary nature of her experience. Her choice of the Shostakovich Preludes and Fugues acts like a mirror to what she was feeling, running the gamut of emotions, and helping her understanding more profoundly just how important music is in our lives. Her story is captivating.
