Chicago Tribune May 15, 2014

John Von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune has recommended our May 16 – 18 concert series. In an article called “Chicago area classical music recommendations” on a page entitled “The week’s top classical music concerts”, and co-incidentally one year exactly to the day that John Von Rhein published a marvelous article about the orchestra, he recommends Camerata Chicago’s concerts, which are to be performed this weekend.

For the program, Hall has selected a triad of classical gems: Haydn’s Symphony No. 48 in C “Maria Theresia;” J.S. Bach’s Orchestral Suite, and Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante.

Mathias Tacke, concert master

mathiastacke-200x247

Mathias Tacke was the second violinist of the acclaimed Vermeer Quartet, Chicago from 1992 until 2007. He is Professor of Violin and Chamber Music at Northern Illinois University and Guest Lecturer for String Chamber Music at Northwestern University.

Mathias Tacke was appointed Concertmaster of Camerata Chicago in the summer of 2008.He will undertake his new position beginning in the fall of 2008.

With the Vermeer Quartet Mathias Tacke gave performances in practically all of the most prestigious festivals, including Tanglewood, Taos, Ravinia, South Bank, Lucerne, Berlin, Schleswig-Holstein and Edinburgh, to name a few. Three of the Vermeer Quartet recordings were nominated for the Grammy Award.

Mathias Tacke appears internationally as a soloist and chamber player, performing a wide range of repertoire from the Baroque to music of our time.

A native of Germany, Mathias Tacke studied with Ernst Mayer-Schierning in Detmold, Germany, with Emanuel Hurwitz and David Takeno in London, and with Sandor Vegh in Prussia Cove, Cornwall. He won first prize in the German National Youth Competition and graduated from the Musikakademie Detmold, where he was later appointed to the faculty.

From 1983-1992 Mr.Tacke was a member of the Ensemble Modern Frankfurt, one of the most important professional groups specializing in the performance of contemporary music. In this capacity he gave countless first performances, including works by most of today’s leading composers. He has made numerous recordings for such labels as Sony, ECM. Harmonia Mundi, Naxos and Cedille.

Aurélien Pétillot

Aurelien Petillot, Principal Viola

Violist Aurélien Pétillot has garnered much esteem as a versatile and engaging performer and pedagogue. He has been invited as a guest artist and soloist by many ensembles and orchestras, in Europe and North America, both on Baroque and modern violas.

A passionate chamber musician, and an ardent advocate of music by living composers, he is a founding member of the Chiaroscuro Trio, whose debut CD of world premiere recordings of contemporary American works for voice, viola, and piano was released by Albany Records in the summer of 2013. In a review of the CD, Fanfare Magazine commended his “rich, beautiful tone that would be the envy of many a chamber or solo violist today.” He has played with the Cavani String Quartet, members of the Azmari, Mirò, and Tosca String Quartets, and toured with The Young Eight, the only professional String Octet in America. He is also the founder and artistic director of Viola By Choice, a non-profit chamber ensemble dedicated to promoting the originality, versatility and importance of the viola and its repertoire. Viola By Choice received the 2009 Austin Table Critics Award for “Best body of work”, and was praised for “offering smart and alluring programs that feed the brain and the soul – and do so with polished, enthusiastic musicianship.” Viola by Choice released its CD, Florilegium in 2010.

Aurélien Pétillot holds a Bachelor’s in musicology and performance from the Paris-Sorbonne University, a Master’s from the Mannes College of Music, in New York, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin. His principal teachers, Jean-Claude Bouveresse, Alexander Brussilovsky, Pierre-Henri Xuereb, Caroline Levine, and Roger Myers, are heirs of an impressive lineage of pedagogues and performers that traces all the way back to Vivaldi and Corelli.

Currently, Dr. Pétillot is lecturer of viola and theory at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, principal violist with the Camerata Chicago, co-principal violist of the Lacrosse Symphony, and conductor of the Red Cedar Symphony Orchestra. Previously, he was the music director of the Chippewa Valley Youth Symphony, the viola and music history faculty at the Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, a faculty artist with the Austin Chamber Music Center, and the viola faculty at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. He also played regularly with the Austin, San Antonio, Corpus Christi and Victoria symphony orchestras, as well as the Austin Lyric Opera and Ballet Austin. His lecture/recital entitled Death Symbolism as Creative Hallmark in Shostakovich’s Viola Sonata, based on his doctoral thesis, has been presented in various universities in America as part of the commemorations celebrating the 100th anniversary of Shostakovich’s birth. Other lectures have dealt with humor in music, the inter-relationships between the arts, and of course, the viola. A review by the Austin American Statesman of a concert of viola works inspired by colors reads: “The concert epitomizes the kind of eclectic, inclusive, lively programming that Pétillot promotes. Dialogue with other musicians, collaboration with other art forms, supporting the emerging composers of his own generation, digging through archives to find the forgotten gems of the viola repertoire— these are things that ignite Pétillot.”
