ERGO MUSICA:

ADRIANA ZOPPO – viola d’amore

MORGAN LITTLE – baroque cello

 

Program & program notes:

String duos for viola d’amore and cello

by “Anon”

 

These Duos are from a collection of 48 duos for Viola d’amore and Violoncello from Manuscript PNM A 199  in the Czech Museum of Music and have been edited and transcribed by Thomas Georgi. Except for one, all of the duos are anonymous. Though it is familiar to us now, the concept of intellectual property was not prevalent in the 18th century or supported by the law, so it was not unusual for composers to leave off their name, as is the case with these duos, but from the general style and certain compositional techniques, it can be deduced they are from the 18th century, Classical Period of music, as are composers such as Mozart and Haydn. They range in difficulty from simple, student level pieces to the more complex and difficult.  The transcription of these duos has added greatly to the repertoire for viola d’amore and are a welcome addition to the pieces that can be performed with just two players, and without needing to add keyboard.

ARTIST BIOS:

JACQUELINE SUZUKI, violin, is a longtime member of the Long Beach and Santa Barbara Symphonies.

She initiated and curates a twice monthly chamber music series, the Free Admission Glendale Noon Concerts. A current schedule may be seen at http://www.glendalenoonconcerts.blogspot.com

A native of San Francisco, she began her earliest chamber music studies on scholarship at the San Francisco Conservatory. She has performance degrees from the Mannes College of Music (BM), where she studied with William Kroll, and the California Institute of the Arts (MFA).

As a Los Angeles freelancer, she has performed with many ensembles and in many genres, from rock, jazz, Latin and Arabic, to playing in the pit for the Bolshoi Ballet and onstage with the Three Tenors. She has recorded with diverse artists: Snoop Dogg, Neil Sedaka, Leonard Cohen, Whitney Houston, Bocelli, Lalo Schifrin, McCoy Tyner, Placido Domingo and many others, and appears on recordings by the Long Beach, Santa Barbara and Pacific Symphonies. She has spent summers at the Peter Britt, Oregon Coast, Carmel Bach and Cabrillo Festivals and has performed in a string quartet “in residence” on a raft trip down the Green River in Utah. Tours have taken her many times to Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and throughout the US.



PATRICK MARSH received his bachelor’s degree in viola performance from the University of Michigan and a master’s degree from the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins as a viola major.

As a violist, Patrick was one of the founding members of “Clemens Quartet,” a string quartet performing and competing throughout the United States. As a violinist, Patrick is a former concertmaster of The Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. His performance opportunities have taken him across the United States, Europe, and St. Petersburg Russia.

Though classical music is the foundation of his technique, he can be found branching out into the jazz and rock genres. Patrick plays a blue Fourness Fuse 5-string electric violin and runs it through a Line6 Helix for effects, and two Gallien Krueger bass amps in stereo.

Patrick can also be heard as a featured soloist in such feature films as “Kids vs. Monsters” and “Pali Road” as well as such video games as “Relics of Gods” and Disney’s “Cartooniverse.” https://www.patrickmarshmusic.com/

 

CLEMENT CHOW has studied at Rice University and Cleveland Institute of Music where he received his Bachelor and Master of Music. He has been to music festivals around the world which include the Aspen Music Festival, Pacific Music Festival in Japan, as well as Schleswig Holstein Music Festival in Germany. He made his solo debut with the Houston Symphony at the age of 16. He has also studied with some of the greatest chamber music groups around the world. The groups include Tokyo, Cleveland, Alban Berg, and Amadeus String Quartets.
