Associate Professor of Violin, David Sariti is known for his fluency is a variety of musical languages, from early music to new, notated to improvised. His programming introduces audiences to less familiar works, and to fresh interpretations of those more familiar. He has concertized throughout the county as both recitalist and chamber collaborator, on both modern and period instruments. A recent 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). Faculty at UVA since 2005, Sariti directs the period-instrument Baroque Orchestra, maintains a violin studio, coaches chamber music, and is Principal Violin II of the Charlottesville Symphony at UVA.
