From the Schwarzwald Circle to Marlboro Music
Through the Schwarzwald Circle the Moltkes were part of an international network, as was Rudolf Serkin. He took his first musical steps as a 10 year-old thanks to the support of Eugenie Schwarzwald. When Hitler came to power, he, like Eugenie Schwarzwald and many others from the Circle, was forced to go into exile.
Nevertheless, the once acquired passion for music remained. He founded Marlboro Music, along with the violinist Adolf Busch and other exiled European musicians in Marlboro, Vermont, to cherish the heritage of chamber music. For the past 63 years, musicians from different backgrounds, generations and nations, spend the summer together in order to capture “the full score of life” through chamber music.
