"My first time coming to The Perlman Music Program on Shelter Island was in 2011, the first summer after I moved to the United States.  I still vividly remember the excitement when I was on the ferry approaching the Island, or rather approaching a musical heaven.  It was the most amazing two-and-a-half weeks at the Chamber Music Workshop.  The passion for the music, the appreciation of life, and the friendships not only were created on the campus, but also have remained around me through the years.  Now, every summer, I see younger PMPers posting pictures of their ferry trips on their way to Shelter Island.  I always feel so lucky that I used to be one of them, and I am one of them. 

The Saturday night recital program features three of the greatest Austro-German composers of the 19th Century: Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms.  The works dated from the very beginning of the Romantic period all the way to its end.  The three composers, under the influence of Beethoven, not only carried the great Austro-German tradition, but also found their own unique voices, leaving us some of the most beautiful works in western music history."
