James Buswell is a versatile violinist and violist, concerto soloist, chamber musician, recitalist, conductor and educator who has performed with virtually all of the major orchestras in the United States and Canada, as well as with orchestras in Europe, Asia, Australia and South America. He not only captivates his audience with "sensitive, evocative, compelling playing" (South Coast Today) but also with his adventuresome programming in recitals that combines standard masterpieces with new and less well-known works.
Violinist Amy Galluzzo is a Jules C. Reiner Prize winner and a finalist in the Naftzger Competition and the Concerto Competition. Her career started with the Boston Philharmonic and Indian Hills orchestras and has continued internationally, from Londons Barbican to Boston's Jordan Hall. She attended the Tanglewood Music Festivals for several years and served as concertmaster under renowned conductors. Ms. Galluzzo collaborates in chamber music concerts and frequently performs as a part of the NEC Avant Garde Ensemble; the Calithumpian Consort, an ensemble that specializes in contemporary music; and Carpe Diem String Quartet.
Carol Ou is a cellist known for her fiery, marvelous and meltingly melodic outpourings (Boston Globe) and her wonderfully pure cello tone and incisive technique (The Strad). A member of the Carpe Diem String Quartet, she frequently performs a zesty mix of classical and contemporary quartets with crossover repertoire. She has toured in Eastern Europe, Asia, and Argentina, and her performances are released on Chi-Mei, Naxos, and Albany records.
Pianist Victor Rosenbaum has concertized widely as soloist and chamber music performer in the United States, Europe, Asia, Israel, and Russia in such prestigious halls as Tully Hall in New York and the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia. A long-time member of the faculty of New England Conservatory in Boston, whose Piano Department he chaired for more than a decade, he has also been on the faculty of Mannes School of Music in New York. He has been Visiting Professor of Piano at the Eastman School of Music and a guest teacher at Juilliard. He has also served on the jury of several international piano competitions. His highly praised recording of Schubert is on Bridge Records and the release of the last three Beethoven sonatas on the same label was named by American Record Guide as one of the top ten classical recordings of 2005. Three discs on the Fleur de Son label feature music of Schubert and Mozart. He is Music Director of the Music for Peace concert series.
