Saturday, May 23, 2020Life!What strange times we are living in! This next week was supposed to be a huge one for me — a concert at Sands Point Preserve in Long Island, a concert for the Garden City Chamber Music Society, and Kinhaven Music School’s Gala in NYC, all within a 3 day span. My life’s default setting of rushing, rushing, and more rushing around was my normal mode of operation! Now, life is moving slowly, and at the same time I find myself asking, “where did April and May go?!” Ah well, it is what it is, and my family continues to feel grateful for all that we have and our good health.

Prior to the pandemic world and my new post-Lark Quartet musical life, I was juggling performing chamber music with new colleagues in NYC, teaching and heading up the chamber music program at SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Music, co-directing Kinhaven, and enjoying raising two young human beings with my husband.

During my seventeen years in the Lark Quartet, I was lucky enough to be a part of creating many commissioning projects by several of America’s most prized composers. This year brought something new! One of my life’s greatest honors is to have received my first commission for solo violin by John Harbison, entitled “DEBut”. It is a beautiful piece that is lyrical and clever.
This past January, I received another commission written for violin and piano entitled “Fantasia on Beethoven’s Spring Sonata” by Bruce Adolphe. Before writing this piece, Bruce was kind enough to ask me what I was currently performing. My answer to him was, “Beethoven!” — I was preparing about 15 different chamber works because his 250th birthday! Both of these commissions were made possible by a SUNY Purchase Faculty Research Grant. I look forward to recording this music soon!

As Assistant Professor of Violin and Head of Chamber Music at SUNY Purchase, I continue to teach and coach young musicians. The need to quickly adapt our instruction of chamber music, which I define as a living-breathing-feeling-music -with-one-another experience, into a remote model, posed quite a challenge for me. I became quite involved in how to create a curriculum that maintained at it’s core the principals of this performance art. By semester’s end, I was relieved to hear from
the students themselves that score study, listening analysis, playing for one another, all brought them to a better place of understanding. It provided a sincere connection to the music they were studying and to one another.

This past week, I have been lucky enough to connect to many of my esteemed colleagues around the country in order to gather stories of “what actually worked” in their remote chamber music curriculum. The fact that I have had time to chat with these great artists and pedagogues to dig deep into what it means to teach and coach chamber music has been invaluable. I recognize that these conversations would probably not have happened had it not been for this crisis.

I have been lucky enough to lead orchestras around this country. My position of Concertmaster of the Brooklyn Philharmonic until 2013 was a highlight. For the past three seasons, I have served as the Concertmaster for the Stamford Symphony. Many of my close Brooklyn Phil colleagues are members of the Stamford Symphony. This orchestra is comprised of NYC musicians, a stellar administration, and gracious board members. Led by CEO, Russell Jones, the SSO figures out a way to pay the orchestra members a respectable amount of lost wages from the canceled concerts in March and April. This says so much about this organization. I respect and admire my excellent colleagues and am excited for the recent hire of our new Music Director, Michael Stern.

Kinhaven continues to be my third child. It has always existed as a beacon for the end of my demanding season. For the past ten years, my husband and I have led this school as Co-Executive Directors, overseeing five sessions that span from late May through August. As we are navigating through what it would require to run a safe 2020 Senior and Junior sessions, we are incredibly grateful for the enormous help we continue to receive from our Kinhaven Task Force. This informed group includes doctors, board members, faculty, parents, camp directors, testing company executives, and Vermont healthcare professionals. We are consumed by the decision to run or not every day — we make our final decision by June 1st.

I have always been an optimist, so I sign off by expressing what I know we all wish for which is a rich artistic life on the other side of this pandemic. For now, I will keep practicing, teaching, and taking care of myself and my family. I send my wishes of good health out to all of you!

August 15, 2018Finally, an Update!It has been a full and wonderful year in my musical life ! I am busy with a versatile career as the first violinist of the Lark Quartet, Co-Executive Director and Faculty Concerts Series Curator of the Kinhaven Music School, Assistant Professor of Violin and Head of Chamber Music at SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Music, and Acting Concertmaster of the Stamford Symphony.
The Lark Quartet celebrated our 30th anniversary by commissioning four new works by American composers Kenji Bunch, John Harbison, Andrew Waggoner and Anna Weesner. Kenji Bunch’s Megalopolis had its world premiere during our 2017/18 season at the University of Iowa (who also co-commissioned the work), while Andrew Waggoner’s string octet and John Harbison’s String Quartet No. 6 were premiered at a special celebration at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Hall to conclude our anniversary year. Anna Weesner’s clarinet quintet will be premiered on September 17, 2018, with clarinetist Romie de Guise-Langlois with the The Chamber Music Society of Salt Lake City in Utah. *We will record these works for commercial release in 2019*.
In addition to the September 17 concert in Utah, we will present 3 house concerts in New York City on November 8, 2018, February 7 and April 4, 2019. We will also perform 3 concerts at the Sands Point Preserve.
My husband and I welcomed over 90 high school-aged students from around the country and 50 faculty and staff to the green mountains of Vermont to join us once again (18 years and counting for me!) for the Kinhaven Music School’s Senior Session, 2018 in Weston, Vermont. I had my usual time of “off-the-grid” living where I immersed myself in music and nature. Every summer I notice how my practice is intensified in it’s focus, allowing me to go deeper into whatever I am currently working on. The students that I worked with on solo, chamber, and orchestral music made me feel exhilarated no matter the level of expertise; their passion to learn was there!
I was especially excited by one of our guests, Body Mapping and Andover Educator, Jane Murray who introduced me and our study body to this technique; an off-shoot of the Alexander Technique. The idea of learning the truth about the way the body is suppose to move goes right along with my never-ending quest for mastering my own efficiency with the violin. This technique and information just adds to my “tool-shed” and gives me more to share with my students.
We had record numbers of audience in attendance for the Saturday night Faculty Concert Series. The new Pre-Concert Wine and Cheese was enormously successful and allowed us to meet so many more community members from Weston, and the surrounding towns in Vermont. I was enormously impressed with the level of artistry by the Kinhaven Senior Session Faculty. I have already planned the five-concert series for 2019 and am so excited about yet another summer of diverse programming. The concerts will feature music by Haydn, Brahms, Jennifer Higdon, Nic Scherzinger, Milhaud, Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky, Mozart, Dutilluex, Dvorak, Wourinen, Schubert, Eric Ewazen, and Turina –wow! Come check it out!!
I am thankful for my job, my students, colleagues, and beautiful studio at Purchase College Conservatory of Music in upstate, NY. I am welcoming some new students soon and will begin (on Monday 8/20) creating groups for the chamber music program. My Performance Class will welcome guests that focus on injury prevention and better health in the practice room, which I hope means better performance experience. Our chamber concerts will be in December and May.

Stamford Symphony is full of wonderfully accomplished New York City musicians. I am quite honored to have been named the Acting Concertmaster for the 2018-19 season. Many of my Brooklyn Philharmonic colleagues are in this orchestra, so it is a blast to make music with them again! In March 2019, I get to perform as a soloist in Haydn’s Sinfonia Concertante with Melanie, Carrie, and Cynde! Let’s go, girls!

My life is just right when I can balance my family world with performance practice, teaching, and my passion for running and yoga practice. I am excited to move forward through the fall and into 2019!

January 6, 2016January NewsHello and Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. As I begin 2016 with some time to re-group and gear up for the next part of the season, I realize what a whirlwind September through December have been! This fall, I began a full time position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Violin at SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music. (I have been part-time for two years) I absolutely love the environment at Purchase because the faculty is committed to the art of teaching and are active, current performers on the scene themselves. The students are supportive, collaborative, and so far remind me much of our students at the Kinhaven Music School.

The Lark had one of the busiest fall seasons that I can remember. We played concerts all over the map but did wind up in Virginia quite a bit! We have focused ourselves on the celebration of the 30th year of the Lark Quartet’s existence. In keeping with our long history of commissioning American composers, we have commissioned five composers to write pieces that feature some of our collaborative formations. John Harbison and Stephen Hartke have both agreed to write string quartets for us. Kenji Bunch will be writing a piece for percussion and string quartet. Frame-drum specialist, Yousif Sheronick will join us for this. Anna Weesner will write for our quartet and clarinetist, Todd Palmer. Last but not least, Andrew Waggoner will write an octet for us to play with the original Larks! 2016-17, 18 will feature all of this great music in concert halls around the country—it will be exciting!
As far as my summer life goes, Kinhaven remains my place of joy. It provides a tech-free environment where I feel my spirit and mind can reconnect to the very things that inspire my artistic soul. Our recruitment is going well and we look forward to inviting back many fine young people to Weston, VT. We are a total of about 130 people, but it feels like a big family for sure. We still need lots of support to carry us forward, so please keep our non-profit in mind for tax-deductable gifts, and thank you!

November 13, 2015Lark Quartet-SUNY Purchase-Kinhaven Music SchoolThis Fall has been a whopper! My time with the Lark Quartet has been spent focused on performing Beethoven's String Quartet, Op. 132. We have had a tremendously active concert fall season with concerts that have introduced us to new audiences. As I get older, I have a different sense of these audience members and am beginning to see what they must experience when chossing to attend a quartet concert. Presenting Op. 132 to these folks has been a truly gratifying experience. has brought us many opportunities to experience this great piece to stew inside of us. It has been a tough and rewarding journey that has made me feel proud and extremely lucky to experience.
I began my first year as a full-tim professor at SUNY Purchase, welcoming in seven new students to my class! What a joy they have been. I continue to work on bringing us (the violins) together, to continue to learn and expolre all aspects of what it is to perform.

February 4, 2014Composing America CD released on Bridge RecordsI am very happy and proud to announce that the Lark Quartet has recorded four works by American Pulitzer Prize winning composers Copland, Adams, Bolcom & Moravec with guests Jeremy Denk, Stephen Salters & Yousif Sheronick. Thanks to everyone who supported us in getting this album completed and we hope you will enjoy our take on these remarkable works. Judith Sherman produced this CD and it was recorded at SUNY Purchase.
January 21, 2014January NewsHello and Thank you for taking the time to visit my website. As I begin 2014 with some time to re-group and gear up for the next part of the season, I realize what a whirlwind September through December have been! This fall, I began my new job as Assistant Professor of Violin at SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music. I absolutely love the environment there because the faculty is inspiring and the students are good-natured, supportive of one another, and eager to work hard and learn. I coached a wide variety of great chamber music, which included George Crumbs’, Voice of the Whale, Dvorak’s E-flat String Quartet, Dohnanyi’s Serenade, a Brahms Violin Sonata, Weber’s Trio for Flute, Cello, and Piano, and was happily impressed by the standard of music making at the semester-end chamber music performances. I look forward to this coming semester and especially to the Violin Performance classes. I welcome any potential students to stop by and hear this class on Wednesday’s from 3-4:30pm.

The Lark had one of the busiest fall seasons that I can remember. As we launched and successfully achieved our “Composing America” CD Kickstarter campaign, the quartet was busy! We played great concerts in Princeton, Brooklyn, Bronxville, Manhattan, New Jersey, to name just a few. We performed on NYC’s Music Monday’s the music of Nico Muhly with wonderful colleagues, Todd Palmer, Aaron Wunsch, and Jennifer Zetlan. Our Lark About Town series that provides free concerts to the public where access is limited was very successful. This initiative allowed us to perform at Cassita Maria and at the Girls Global Learning Center in the Bronx. We look forward to more of these ways to give back to our community.
Bridge Records released our CD featuring the music of Jennifer Higdon last year and is gearing up for the early February release of the next CD, “Composing America” featuring pianist Jeremy Denk and some of our greatest American composers: John Adams, Aaron Copland, Paul Moravec, and William Bolcom. With John Adams’ blessing, percussionist Yousif Sheronick arranged a part for himself to go along with the string quartet parts of “John’s Book of Alleged Dances”. Check out the video for background and detailed explanation of the percussion used for this piece—pretty darn cool! We commissioned “Billy in the Darbies”, written by William Bolcom for baritone singer, Stephen Salters and our quartet. The large piece on the CD is the Piano Quintet by Paul Moravec, written for Jeremy Denk and the Lark. So, as you can see, as the Lark progresses through our string quartet life, we hold dear the tradition of commissioning, premiering, and advancing the good work of some of our country's most acclaimed composers.

As far as my summer life is concerned, Kinhaven remains my “third child”. A day does not go by without love and care paid to this beautiful and unique organization. From endearing parental calls about the special needs of one’s child to programming our summer senior session orchestra repertoire, I am never bored! I am also heavily involved in building a sound financial future for Kinhaven. We still need lots of support to carry us through, so please keep our non-profit in mind for tax-deductable gifts, and thank you!
In December, we had a benefit at Robert and Lenore Davis’ upper west-side apartment. Kinhaven junior and senior students performed chamber music for the sixty-plus member audience. A warm and comfortable Kinhaven energy was in the air! I am incredibly thankful to the Lark Quartet for performing with Lenore Davis at this event. So now in February, we begin the audition schedule for our 2014 class of students. I am very excited to hear everyone and to see the summer take shape. For senior session, we will have five terrific conductors that will lead our students through some pretty awesome repertoire and they are: Timothy Weiss, David Hattner, William Wiedrich, David Buck (yes my father), and Simon Lipskar. The repertoire includes, Berlioz’ Symphony Fantastique, Wagner’s Rienzi Overture, Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony, Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration, and Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Suite. Check out the Kinhaven website to find out more about audition and summer concert dates. Please also consider visiting us in VT this summer—I promise, you will LOVE it!

September 1, 2011Hello and thank you for taking the time to look at my site!Life continues to be exciting. Tony and I just finished our first summer as Executive Directors of the Kinhaven Music School. We led a Senior Session of 94 fabulous students and 30 top notch staff through a wonderful musical summer. The kids were not to be forgotten and as always, relationships were formed that will be long lasting. It was truly an honor to begin our work there and put into place a plan for the rich future of Kinhaven. I thank all my wonderful colleagues and friends who supported us all the way! Luca and Tahlia loved Vermont with their favorite pastime being salamander catching and mud dunking (full body-ugh!)

Currently, I am in my eighth season with the LARK Quartet as first violinist. This month, the LARK Quartet will continue our preparations for a recording for Bridge Records of a CD to feature the music of Jennifer Higdon. We will be recording with pianist, Gary Graffman, clarinetist, Todd Palmer, and pianist, Blair McMillan. This CD project will largely be made possible by a Copland Recording Grant we received a while back. Lark's Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 season looks good. We will be performing in California, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and New York. Our Spring 2012 plans are to begin recording an all Paul Moravec cd. The featured work on this recording will be Paul's Piano Quintet which we premiered with Jeremy Denk at Merkin Recital Hall in April, 2010. Jeremy Denk will be joining us for this exciting project.

I am so relieved and excited to report that the Brooklyn Philharmonic is back on it's feet. I have served as it's tenured Concertmaster since 2009. Newly appointed Artistic Director, Alan Pierson is a fantastic musician and collaborator--expect great things! Our first concert of the season is on October 8th in New York City. As part of the Brooklyn Phiharmonic's chamber music series at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, my annual recital will take place on January 29th, 2012.

In September, I will be traveling home to Altadena, CA to perform with the LARK ate Scipps College and also to play a recital with my college buddy and fabulous pianist, Robert Thies in Claremont, CA. The program is unusually traditional!

I would like to take the time to write that I feel extremely fortunate to have such a varied career. I am surrounded by amazing musicians who continue to inspire me and allow me the opportunity to grow. I am honored to have been chosen for the Directorship of the Kinhaven Music School and energized by the chance to contribute all that I can. It is a magical place where kids who "like" music end up "loving" music for the rest of their lives. For those of you that are less familiar with it, please check out the website. Feel free to write to me with any inquiries.

Be Well My Friends!

Described by Strad Magazine as “Particularly impressive for her surpassing degree of imagination and vibrant sound,” violinist Deborah Buck has built a strong musical career as chamber musician, concertmaster, soloist, professor, and artistic leader.

Ms. Buck enjoyed seventeen years of exciting concertizing, extensive commissioning, and recording as a member of the Lark Quartet. The Lark actively pushed the boundaries of what a traditional string quartet could do by being one of the first quartets to commission works that feature added percussion, clarinet, voice, and piano. They have recorded pieces by many of America’s most celebrated and prize-winning composers like John Harbsion, Jennifer Higdon, Aaron J. Kernis, and Paul Moravec. The Lark has an extensive discography, having recorded albums for Bridge Records, Endeavor Classics, Koch, and Arabesque labels. Their final album, “A Farewell Celebration” included a commissioned octet by Andrew Waggoner written for the current members and the Lark Quartet founding members.

In 2019, Ms. Buck was awarded a SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Music Faculty Incentive Research Grant that facilitated a commission for solo violin by John Harbsion called DeBut, and one other for violin and piano called Fantasia on Beethoven’s Spring Sonata by Bruce Adolphe. Since 2013, she has has been Assistant Professor of Violin and Head of Chamber Music at SUNY Purchase College Conservatory of Music.

For the past three seasons, Ms. Buck has led the Stamford Symphony (CT) as its Acting Concertmaster. She has held concertmaster positions with the Brooklyn Philharmonic, St. Matthew’s Chamber Orchestra (L.A.) and the Los Angeles Opera Guild as well as many other noteworthy ensembles in the New York City area. As recitalist, Ms. Buck has performed at the Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. and over the airways via broadcasts of the Dame Myra Hess Series in Chicago for WFMT and “Sunday’s Live” in Los Angeles for KKGO and as an annual guest artist at the Brooklyn Museum of Art. She is also a guest soloist, having been featured with Lincoln Center’s Little Orchestra Society, Brooklyn Philharmonic, and most recently, the Stamford Symphony.

A native of Los Angeles, Ms. Buck worked for the motion picture and television industry. Her violin solos for television helped breathe life back into the re-mastered American Silent Film classic, “The Scarlet Letter” (Turner Classic Movies). Her National television debut came by way of a feature guest spot on the Family Channel’s, “It Takes Two” hosted by Dick Clark. During this time, Ms. Buck was awarded the Los Angeles Philharmonic-sponsored Corwin Foundation Grant, the Leni Fe Bland Career Grant and was a winner in the National Contemporary Record Society Competition, the Sorantin National Young Artist Competition, and the International Young Artist Competition at Corpus Christi.

For twenty summers, Ms. Buck has taught at the Kinhaven Music School in Vermont where she and her husband have had the honor of serving as the Co-Executive Directors for the past ten years. Ms. Buck was a Starling Scholarship recipient at the Juilliard School as a student of Dorothy DeLay. She earned a Master’s Degree from the University of Southern California where she studied with Robert Lipsett, and was awarded the Jascha Heifetz Violin Scholarship. Ms. Buck performs on a violin by Vincenzo Postiglione, graciously on loan by the family of Ray and Marcia Corwin.
The program concluded with a vigorous rendition of Schumann’s popular Piano Quintet. Mr. Denk offered a dynamic reading of the piano part, and the Lark members — Deborah Buck and Harumi Rhodes, violinists; Kathryn Lockwood, violist; and Caroline Stinson, cellist — performed with conviction and flair.Vivien SchweitzerThe New York Times

Buck has the soul of a great soloist-the great burnished sound drenched in beauty and the burning intelligence that plumbs music of its sets.The Charleston Gazette
Particularly impressive was Deborah Buck who played with a surpassing degree of imagination and vibrant sound.The Strad
Ysaye’s Violin Sonata No. 3, a solo piece for Buck, was virtuosic and compelling; sublimely evoking all five senses, it may well have been the highlight of the afternoon.Time Out New York Magazine (The Volume)

Buck has the technical explosiveness of a great soloist. She delivered even the thorniest passages with aplomb, along with invigoratingly accurate intonation
