Cellist Arkady Beletsky, who has been called “a musician of rare lyrical Gift,” started studying music at an early age. After years of training in his native Kiev, Ukraine, Arkady’s family moved to Moscow to continue his musical education. He went on to graduate from the Gnesin Music College with a Bachelor of Arts and Gnesin Institute in Moscow with a Master of Arts degree. In 1983, Beletsky and his sister co-founded the Renaissance Chamber Ensemble, one of the most prolific and well-regarded chamber groups in pre-Perestroika USSR. In 1989 Beletsky emigrated to the U.S. Since then, he has performed solo, chamber, and orchestral work in Boston and around New England, including venues such as Jordan Hall, Sanders Theater, and Mechanics Hall. In the last two decades, Beletsky’s focus has shifted from performance to teaching cello and chamber music. He was a long-time faculty member at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge and at The Music School of Providence, RI. Currently, Beletsky teaches cello and chamber music at Indian Hill Music, while also providing private instruction. He continues to perform as a soloist and with chamber groups throughout the United States and Europe.
Pianist Jennifer Ruland Morlock has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe as a soloist, with orchestras, as a chamber musician, and as a collaborative pianist. She has won and placed in several national and international competitions. The Boston Globe has called her playing “adroit, full of zest and variety...and one hundred percent satisfying.” The Boston Music Intelligencer called her a “consummate artist...offering new and mind-opening interpretations...” and her playing “ravishing.” Morlock graduated from New England Conservatory of Music with a Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance, and earned her Master’s Degree in Piano at Rice University. Her principal teachers were Robert Roux, Veronica Jochum, Jacob Maxin, and A. Ramon Rivera. Morlock currently has an active performing career and is on the faculty of Indian Hill Music.
