Described as “superb” by The New York Times, violinist Tai Murray is establishing herself a musical voice of a generation. Appreciated for her elegance and effortless ability, Murray creates a special bond with listeners 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 influences—principally, Yuval Yaron (a student of Gingold & Heifetz) and Franco Gulli. Winner of an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2004, Murray was named a BBC New Generation Artist (2008–2010). She has performed as guest soloist on the stages of such halls as the Barbican, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall, Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens and Shanghai’s Concert Hall, performing with such ensembles as the Atlanta Symphony, BBC Scottish Symphony and Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar. Now a resident of Berlin and New York, Murray’s appearances include Berlin’s Konzerthaus and Kammermusiksaal at the Philharmonie, projects with the Philharmonic Staatsorchester of Mainz and Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, and tours with the Brandenburger Symphoniker and Niederrheinische Sinfoniker. As a chamber musician, she has joined tours with Musicians from Marlboro and was a member of Lincoln Center’s Chamber Music Society II (2004–2006). Festival appearances include Ireland’s West Cork Festival and the Great Lakes Chamber Music Festival in the United States. Murray’s critically acclaimed debut recording for harmonia mundi of Ysaye’s six sonatas for solo violin was released in 2012. Her second recording with works by American Composers of the 20th century was released in 2013 by the label eaSonus, and her third disc with the Bernstein Serenade was released in 2014.
