About the Festival Artists:
Virtuoso violinist Paul Rosenthal has been returning to perform at the Beethoven Festival for over 30 years. Rosenthal has played the violin since the age of three, going on to attend the Juilliard School in New York City and the University of Southern California under acclaimed master Jascha Heifetz. A resident of Alaska since 1969, Rosenthal founded the Sitka Summer Music Festival, a chamber music festival that helped inspire the founding of the Beethoven Festival here in Park City. A true virtuoso violinist, Paul Rosenthal performs worldwide and has recorded on a number of labels, including RCA, Vox, Fidelio, Arabesque, Vanguard and Biddulph.
Rosenthal will be joined by pianist and Steinway Artist John Novacek. John Novacek regularly tours the Americas, Europe and Asia as solo recitalist, chamber musician and concerto soloist; in the latter capacity he has presented over thirty concerti with dozens of orchestras. John Novacek is a much sought-after collaborative artist and has performed with Joshua Bell, Matt Haimovitz, Leila Josefowicz, Cho-Liang Lin and Yo-Yo Ma. For more information on John Novacek, visit http://parkerartists.com/John-Novacek.html
Award-winning Swiss-Venezuelan violinist, Simon Gollo, earned degrees from the Conservatoire de Musique de Geneve, Switzerland and the Conservatoire Superieur et Academie de Musique Tibor Varga in Sion, Switzerland. The Founder and Artistic Director of the Nuevo Mundo Festival and Academy in Aruba, has a recognized career having performed in prestigious scenarios such as the Chamber Society of Philadelphia, New York City's 92nd Street Y Kaufmann Concert Hall, Chamber Music Society of Detroit, Washington DC's National Gallery of Art, London's Bolivar Hall, the Caracas Teatro Teresa Carreño and Mexico City's Auditorio Blas Galindo.
Pianist Bryan Stanley is a frequent collaborative guest artist with the Park City Beethoven Festival. Dr. Stanley performs, coaches and lectures on the faculty of Iowa's Waldorf College. A prolific composer as well, his second piano concerto garnered first prize in the Riverton Symphony concerto performance competition in 2009 and has repeat performances at St. Louis Community College with composer as soloist. In 1997 the Des Moines Metro Opera premiered his one-act chamber opera, Edgar Allen Poe's The Cask of Amontillado, the result of winning a national chamber opera competition sponsored by the company.
Cellist Cheung Chau received the first double doctorate degree in the history of the New England Conservatory in wind ensemble conducting and cello, studying with Frank Battisti and Colin Carr. He studied orchestral and choral conducting at the Royal Swedish Conservatory with Jorma Panula. His other main teachers include cellists Aldo Parisot and Eleonore Schoenfeld. As cellist Chau performed as soloist with the Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Macao Orchestra, among others, in chamber music and solo recitals at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, Beijing Concert Hall, Merkin Hall and Jordan Hall, recorded for Acte Preable as member of Atma Trio, and recorded for Hong Kong Radio and Television corporation, China Central Television, Norddeutscher Rundfunk, and Irish Radio.
Mezzo-Soprano Gretchen Windt is originally from Chicago and has performed in operas and oratorios throughout the country. She has performed regularly with Cincinnati Opera; highlights include Golijov's Ainadamar (Voice of the Fountain), the world premiere of Hailstork's Rise For Freedom, and a touring production of The Magic Flute (Third Lady and Papagena). She has performed and covered roles including Hansel (Hansel und Gretel), Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro), Dorabella (Cosi fan tutte), both Third Lady and Papagena (The Magic Flute), Mercedes (Carmen), Meg Page (Falstaff), Prince Orlofsky (Die Fledermaus), Jo (Adamo's Little Women), Angelina (La Cenerentola), Rosina (Il Barbiere di Siviglia), and Cendrillon (Cendrillon). Solo oratorio credits include Handel's Messiah, Mozart's Requiem, Vivaldi's Gloria, and Bach's Magnificat.
Clarinetist Russell Harlow's artistry has led him to become one of the nation's premiere solo and chamber clarinetist. In addition to performing more than 30 concerts a year with the Beethoven Festival, Russell Harlow has performed with the Amsterdam Chamber Players in Holland, for the Sitka Festival and with the Anchorage Fall Classics Festival in Alaska, with the Muir String Quartet, with the Raphael Trio at the Music from Ouray Festival and at Carnegie's Weill Hall in New York City, regularly as guest artist on the Bargemusic Series in New York and a featured artist with the International Clarinet Association Clarfests around the world.
