Meditations And Reflections For Solo Violin
Label: STEINWAY & SONS
Format: COMPACT DISC
This album explores the fascinating allusions between baroque and contemporary music through the prism of the repertoire for the unaccompanied violin. Two distinctive sound worlds coexist and reflect on each other in this dualistic album. This was made possible by using two different violins and by experimenting with the idea of the historical pitch as one of the expressive tools. Violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova has been praised by the press for her “fine performances” (The Washington Post,) “dark plush romantic violin sound,” (New York Concert Review) and “thrilling technique and bravura style” (San Francisco Classical Voice). Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Ms. Chulochnikova began playing violin at the age of seven and made her professional debut at fourteen performing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. She received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow as well as Oberlin Conservatory and The Juilliard School.
