Personal Summary / Bio
One of America’s leading historical string players, Robert Mealy has been praised for his “imagination, taste, subtlety, and daring” (Boston Globe). He has recorded over fifty cds on most major labels, ranging from Hildegard of Bingen with Sequentia, to Renaissance consorts with the Boston Camerata, to Rameau operas with Les Arts Florissants. At home in New York, he is a frequent leader and soloist with the New York Collegium, ARTEK, Early Music New York, and the Clarion Society. He has also led the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra in two Grammy-nominated recordings and several festival seasons. He often appears as guest director and concertmaster of the Phoenix Symphony and the Colorado Music Festival. A devoted chamber musician, he is a member of the Renaissance violin band The King’s Noyse, the 17c ensemble Quicksilver, and the medieval quartet Fortune’s Wheel. After over a decade teaching at Harvard, he was recently appointed a full professor (adjunct) at Yale University, where he directs the Yale Collegium and teaches classes in musical rhetoric and performance; he will also be joining the faculty of Juilliard’s new historical performance department. In 2004 Mr. Mealy received Early Music America’s Binkley Award for outstanding teaching at both Harvard and Yale.
