Biography

Violinist David Sariti is known for his performance and research interests that cut across styles and eras, with a repertoire spanning from the seventeenth century to the present day.  He has recently appeared as recitalist at universities across the country, as soloist with orchestra, and in diverse chamber collaborations. A recent all-Mendelssohn piano trio program was hailed as “Chamber music at a high professional level, reflecting credit on the schools that choose to have their students taught by musicians who not only have academic credentials but are also first-class performing artists.” (Classical Voice of North Carolina).  His adaptability as a performer extends also to new music, with performances of works by composers throughout the Southeast.  Faculty at UVa since 2005, he is Director of the period-instrument Baroque Orchestra, maintains a violin studio, coaches chamber music, performs in the Rivanna Quartet, and is Principal Violin II of the Charlottesville Symphony.  He was honored to be part of the first cohort of College of Arts & Sciences Arts Fellows in 2016-17.

 

Dr. Sariti also maintains an active presence on the Baroque violin.  He has appeared with many notable chamber ensembles and orchestras, and has recently collaborated with fortepianist David Breitman, The Vivaldi Project, and others.  He has presented programs of music from the collection of Thomas Jefferson since arriving at UVa, and is featured on the CD “Music from the Jefferson Collection”. An improviser of music both old and new, he plays jazz with Greg Howard, John D’earth, and others.

 

In the teaching studio, Dr. Sariti emphasizes the development of a natural, precise technique and comprehensive musicianship skills that enable students to make informed interpretive decisions on a wide range of repertoire.  He has taught violin and music history at the Hartt School, University of Hartford, and recently completed a term as Performance Chair of the College Music Society Mid-Atlantic Chapter.  His articles have been featured in Early Music America, American String Teacher, and American Music Teacher. He completed his doctorate at Hartt in the Honors Chamber Music program, writing "The Austro-German Violin Sonata, c. 1650". He also holds degrees from the University of Akron and Ithaca College, with election to the National Music Honor Society; studies were with Katie Lansdale, Pamela Gearhart, Pamela Frank and members of the Cleveland and Miami quartets.
