Each summer Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute brings talented young musicians from around the world to make music under the supervision of a renowned faculty. Then, in the spring the most promising musicians tour under the direction of acclaimed violinist Miriam Fried. Musicians From Ravinia have become Treetops CMS regulars, bringing magnificent programs year after year.

Their 2019 program includes a new and exciting work by Timo Andres, and two major staples of the chamber music repertoire. Timo Andres, who grew up in rural Connecticut, has been hailed for his music’s “playful intelligence and individuality,” (The Guardian) and of his 2010 debut album for two pianos, Alex Ross wrote in The New Yorker that “it achieves an unhurried grandeur that has rarely been felt in American music since John Adams came on the scene… more mighty than shy, [Andres] sounds like himself.”
