Ivy Artists is proud to announce that we will be representing vioin player Tai Murray. Acclaimed as "superb" by The New York Times, violinist Tai Murray is a rising star of her generation, increasingly in demand for both recitals and orchestral engagements. " Technically flawless... vivacious and scintillating... It is without doubt that Murray's style of playing is more mature than that of many seasoned players; and, with a debut record this outstanding, it can safely be assumed that she will exceed many expectations - she's certainly exceeded mine. " Francesca Treadaway - Muso Magazine Appreciated for her elegance and effortless ability, Murray creates a special bond with her public through her mature phrasing and subtle sweetness. Her programming reveals musical intelligence. Her sound, sophisticated bowing and choice of vibrato remind us of her musical background and her studies, among others, with Yuval Yaron (a student of Gingold & Heifetz) and Franco Gulli. Winner of an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2004, Tai Murray was a BBC New Generation Artist from 2008 through 2010.
She has performed on the stages of such halls as Berlin's Konzerthaus, Chicago's Orchestra Hall, Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens, Shanghai's Concert Hall, New York's Carnegie Hall, in London at Wigmore Hall, and has collaborated with a wide range of conductors and instrumentalists including Marin Alsop, Richard Goode, Alan Gilbert, Kristian Järvi, Jaime Laredo, Dmitry Sitkovetsky, Benjamin Shwartz, and Mitsuko Uchida. Other recent debuts include the Houston and Dallas Symphony Orchestras, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra as well as re-engagements with the Atlanta, Chicago, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Baltimore Symphony Orchestras. In Europe the BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Philharmonic London, BBC Scottish Symphony as well as the Philharmonic Staatsorchester of Mainz and the Düsseldorfer Symphoniker invite her as a guest soloist. She is also an avid recitalist performing duo recitals with pianist Gilles Vonsattel and Mihaela Ursuleasa and has performed together with Lambert Orkis at the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society. A dedicated chamber musician, Tai Murray is a member of the conductor-less East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO). She has been on tour numerous times with Musicians from Marlboro and was a member of Lincoln Center's Chamber Music Society (2004-2006). Tai Murray's debut recording for harmonia mundi of Ysaye's six sonatas for solo violin was released in February of 2012. http://www.taimurray.com
