La Catrina Quartet members to visit CarrizozoFrom ReportsPosted: 05/30/2013 07:45:22 PM MDT
Click photo to enlargeDaniel Vega-Abela and Roberta Arruda, violinists, and Jorge Martinez Rios, violist, will present an evening of duets and trios at the Trinity United Methodist Church on 10th at D Ave. in Carrizozo at 7 p.m. on June 14. This Carrizozo Music in the Parks concert is free and will be followed by a reception and opportunity to meet the performers. They will perform the "Dvorak Terzetto," the duo for violin and viola by Mexican composer Manuel M. Ponce, along with other selections.
Winners of a 2012 Latin Grammy Award and Hailed by Yo-Yo Ma as wonderful ambassadors of music, the La Catrina Quartet is one of the most sought after ensembles on tour today. Their unique blend of Latin American and standard repertoire has proved enormously entertaining for its diverse audiences, catering to the more traditional concertgoers while also attracting the next generation of listeners.
The La Catrina Quartet has a triple mission: to perform the masterworks of the string quartet repertoire, to promote Mexican and Latin American concert music worldwide and to work closely with composers in order to promote the performance of new music.
Born in Mexico City, Daniel Vega-Albela started studying violin with Yuriko Kuronuma. At fifteen, he won silver medal in the first National Violin Competition in Mexico City. At sixteen, he traveled to New York City, where he received his Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from the Mannes College of Music, under the guidance of Sally Thomas. He has played with many ensembles in the United States, such as the St. Cecilia Chamber Orchestra and the Western New York Chamber Players. He has toured Japan and Mexico, and has had many appearances as soloist with different orchestras throughout Mexico. He has also worked with several chamber and symphony orchestras in Mexico, such as the Orquesta de C mara de Morelos, the Camerata de Torre n, and the Orquesta Sinf nica de Miner a. From 1994 to 1997, he was instructor of violin at the Academia Yuriko Kuronuma in Mexico City, and in 1997, he joined the Conservatorio de las Rosas to teach violin performance and to play with their new music ensemble, the Ensamble de las Rosas.
His devotion to teaching has already yielded some important results: he is featured in the 2004 and 2005 edition of Who's Who Among America's Teachers. Mr. Vega-Albela holds a Master of violin performance degree from Western Michigan University, and a Master of chamber music degree from Kent State University, where he studied with Renata Artman Knific and Ivan Chan, respectively.
Roberta Arruda recently received her Master degree in Violin Performance from the University of New Mexico, under the tutelage of Carmelo de los Santos and has played as soloist and chamber musician throughout New Mexico since 2007.
She completed her Bachelor of music performance in Brazil and received an Artist Diploma from the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Budapest, Hungary, where she spent two years under full scholarship from the prestigious Vitae Foundation.
As a chamber musician she is a core player for Sunday Chatter (formerly known as the Church of Beethoven), at Las Placitas Series, Santa Fe Promusica, and has performed with Taos Chamber Music, Serenata of Santa Fe, Albuquerque Chamber Soloists, in Duo concerts with cellists Joan Zucker, Joel Becktell, Udi Bar-David (Philadelphia Orchestra) among others.
Jorge Mart nez Rios was born in Torre n, Mexico, and studied viola at the Conservatorio de las Rosas, where he graduated with honors under the tutelage of professor Gela Dubrova. Mr. Mart nez has performed across the US and Mexico in some of the most prestigious concert venues, such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Meany Hall's World Series in Seattle, Chicago Center for the Arts, Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, just to mention a few. He has been principal and assistant principal viola for different orchestras in Mexico and the US, like the Orquesta Sinf nica de Miner a, the Camerata de Coahuila, the Orquesta de C mara de Michoac n, the Western Piedmont Symphony and the Las Cruces Symphony.
