Win 1 of 5 Signed Copies of Violinist Maria Ioudenitch's Newly-Released "SONGBIRD" CD

Recorded with pianist Kenny Broberg, Maria's first album on Warner was released this month

The Violin Channel, in conjunction with our good friends at Warner Classics, is this week giving away five personally autographed copies of violinist Maria Ioudenitch's new CD: "SONGBIRD."


The disk features Richard Strauss' Morgen, Op. 27 No. 4, Franz Schubert's Fantasie in C major D934, Glinka's "L'Alouette," Rachmaninoff's "Ne poy, krasavitsa, pri mne," Op. 4 No. 4, Medtner's "Skazka" (Fairy Tale), Op. 20 No 1 in B flat minor, Tchaikovsky's "None but the lonely heart," Op. 6 No. 6, Amy Beach's "Romance," Op. 23, Nadia Boulanger's "Soleils couchants," Fanny Mendelssohn's "Erwin" Op. 7 No. 2 (Goethe,) Robert Schumann's "Romance in A major," Op. 94 No.2, and excerpts from Clara Schumann's Three Romances Op. 22.


Born in Russia and raised in Kansas, Maria is a first-prize winner at the Ysaÿe International Music Competition, the Tibor Varga International Violin Competition, and the Joseph Joachim International Competition. She completed her Bachelor’s at the Curtis Institute of Music where she studied with Pamela Frank and Shmuel Ashkenasi and her Master’s at the New England Conservatory where she studied with Miriam Fried. She is currently in the Professional Studies program at the Kronberg Academy, working with Christian Tetzlaff.


In regards to Amy Beach's Romance for Violin & Piano, Maria said, "'Romance,' in this musical context, is used as a genre, a type of piece. However, I can’t think of a piece more suited to the other definition of 'romance': love. This piece has many of the characteristics of romantic love: tenderness, passion, turmoil, longing...and, in the end, peace."
