Sarasa Chamber Music Ensemble season starts Sunday
As part of the effort to raise funds for the new season, Scarfe has persuaded three of those colleagues to perform with him on a California tour as the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Players. Those colleagues are clarinetist Sacha Rattle, violinist Edwin Huizinga, and cellist Charles Akert. They form the ensemble that Olivier Messiaen had in mind when he composed his Quatour pour la fin du temps (quartet for the end of time), a composition that Scarfe has previously performed frequently with his Nonsemble 6 colleagues. Messiaens quartet will be the major work on the program that the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Players have prepared for their California tour. Rattle will also be featured in two trio performances, one from the nineteenth century (Johannes Brahms Opus 114 in A minor) with Akert and Scarfe and the other from the twentieth (Darius Milhauds Opus 157b suite) with Huizinga and Scarfe. These trios will begin the program, and the Messiaen will be performed after the intermission.

Founded in 2001, the biennial competition has launched the careers of seven world-class talents – including Lin – each of whom is enjoying a rewarding career. The New York Times has lauded Lin as “a sensitive, passionate player with a glowing tone” and described his sound as “warm, flexible and perfectly centered.” In 2011, Lin joined the Juilliard String Quartet after an extensive search process for a new musician. Lin performs with the Chamber Music Society as part of its first Harris appearance of the season. “The partnership between the Harris Theater and the Chamber Music Society has afforded many great opportunities for Chicago and our Competition winners,” said Sir Michael Hill , chairman of Michael Hill International and founder of the Michael Hill International Violin Competition. “Over the last few years, we’ve been able to pair talented young musicians with one of the world’s great arts organizations, furthering our goal of fostering the careers of the next generation of classical music stars.
