Middlebury Chamber Music Festival Concert

Middlebury Chamber Music Festival Concert
Description:

Middlebury Chamber Music Festival visiting artists Arturo Delmoni, violin and Peter Sanders, cello will perform a concert of chamber music on Saturday June 30, 2018 at 7 o’clock at the Champlain Valley Unitarian Universalists Church in Middlebury, VT. Delmoni and Sanders will play a program of duets as well as a string quartet with violinist Emily Sunderman and violist Elizabeth Reid and virtuosic solo pieces accompanied by pianist Cynthia Huard. The program will include works by Haydn, Alessandro Rolla, Ravel and Tchaikovsky.

Arturo Delmoni, violin, is one of the most celebrated artists of his generation. His remarkably distinctive playing embodies the romantic warmth that is the special province of the great virtuosi of the golden age of violin playing. Yo-Yo Ma describes Delmoni as “an enormously gifted musician and an impeccable violinist. His playing style is unique, and his gorgeous sound is reminiscent of that of great violinists from a bygone era.” Glenn Dicterow, concertmaster of the NY Philharmonic, says, “Delmoni’s playing always goes right to the heart, and his charisma is irresistible.” Delmoni’s stylish, elegant interpretations of classical masterpieces have earned him critical acclaim in the United States and abroad. Richard Dyer of the Boston Globe wrote “It’s hard to imagine how the violin could be much better played than Delmoni did – he plays with astonishing speed, lightness, fluency and sweetness of tone.” Alan Heatherington of the American Record Guide wrote “The growing discography of Arturo Delmoni testifies to a musician who must possess an artistic soul of exceptional beauty. Each new issue reveals additional aspects of a winsome musical personality and verifies an impression of great warmth and geniality.” Delmoni made his debut at Carnegie Hall at age 14 playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto with the Little Orchestra Society under Thomas Scherman. Since then he has been a soloist with the St. Louis, Dallas, Spokane, Jupiter, El Paso, Glendale and Tucson Symphony Orchestras; the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra of Boston; the California Chamber Symphony; the New York City Ballet Orchestra; the Rhode Island, Brooklyn, Boston, Omaha and Kansas City Philharmonics; and the Boston Pops. He has appeared as a recitalist throughout the United States and in Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Hong Kong. As a chamber musician, Delmoni has performed with illustrious colleagues such as Pinchas Zukerman, Elmar Oliveira, Emanuel Ax, Nathaniel Rosen, Jon Kimura Parker, Jeffrey Kahane and Dudley Moore. Songs My Mother Taught Me, Delmoni’s recording of romantic miniatures, received extraordinary reviews from prominent critics. Audiophiles and audio critics generally regard his recording of unaccompanied violin music of Ysaÿe, Kreisler and Bach as a reference for the sound of a solo violin. Delmoni’s duo recital recording with cellist Nathaniel Rosen, entitled “Music for a Glass Bead Game” was nominated for an AFIM Indie Award, received a Golden Ear award, and was on Fanfare’s “Best of the Year” list. Arturo Delmoni plays a JB Guadagnini, 1780, and a viola from the same period.

Pianist, Cynthia Huard has appeared as a featured soloist at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Aston Magna Early Music Festival, and in recital as a pianist and harpsichordist throughout the United States and in Europe. As Artistic Director of the Rochester Chamber Music Society’s summer series, she has performed with Lark Quartet, Johannes Quartet, cellist Nathaniel Rosen, and with chamber players of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Toronto Symphony, National Symphony, and the Colorado, Utah, and Vermont Symphony Orchestras. Her recent premieres include music by Jorge Martin, Nico Muhly, Padma Newsome, and commissions from Erik Nielsen and Thomas L. Read. Ms. Huard holds advanced degrees from Indiana University and The Akademie of Music in Graz, Austria. She teaches piano and chamber music at Middlebury College.

Violist Elizabeth Reid is in high demand as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral musician in Vermont. Her playing has been described as having a “deep and expressive sound” and a “natural musicality.” (Times Argus). She performs with the groups ARIOSO, the Northern Third Piano Quartet and in a viola-piano duo with the pianist Alison Cerutti. In Northern New England Ms. Reid has been featured on concert series as a soloist with the vocal group Counterpoint and various concert series as a chamber musician and soloist, including Cathedral Arts Burlington, Paine Mountain Arts, Chamber Works at Dartmouth College, Norwich University Concerts and the Barre Opera House. She has also performed live on Vermont Public Radio in various performances, including the Rebecca Clarke Sonata with Alison Cerutti in June 2015. She appeared as soloist with the Burlington Civic Symphony in 2017, performing Martinu’s Rhapsody-Concerto. Ms. Reid is currently principal violist of the Middlebury Opera Orchestra. She is also a member of the Burlington Chamber Orchestra and has played with Vermont Symphony Orchestra, New York Chamber Soloists, Burlington Ensemble, Green Mountain Opera, Handel Society of Dartmouth, Music-COMP, Vermont Virtuosi, TURNmusic and Capital City Concerts. She has a passionate interest in contemporary music and has been involved in various premieres of solo and chamber works in Canada and the United States. She was the premiere performer of Jorge Martin’s solo viola work “Don’t Know Yet”, Erik Nielsen’s Sonata for Viola and Piano and Little Suite for Solo Viola, Dennis Bathory-Kitsz’s Solo Sonata, Jacob Morton-Black’s “Romance”, and Lydia Busler-Blais’ “The Scree Dragon”. Recently she performed a solo viola show at ArtsRiot in Burlington, Vermont, including electronic works of American, Canadian, and Finnish composers. Ms. Reid studied improvisation and chamber music at the Time of Music Festival in Viitasaari, Finland in 2016. A native of Canada, Ms. Reid studied viola performance at Western University in London, Ontario and at the Glenn Gould Professional School at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
