Violinist Elena Urioste Releases her Debut CD
Featured on the cover of Symphony magazine as an emerging artist to watch, violinist Elena Urioste is featured here on her debut recording. With pianist Hugh Sung, Urioste presents a recital of works showcasing her artistic range. Music from different centuries and different countries weaves from lyrical beauty and subtle colors to soaring emotion and dazzling passage work. Sonatas by Beethoven and Janácek anchor the disc, with Hubay's virtuosic, rarely performed Carmen Fantasy and a jewel by Engel completing the selections. Find out why this young star has been described by the New York Times as passionate and virtuosic. [The CD is available at online outlets such as and at White Pine Music.]
