Praised 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) violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova is pursuing an active career as a soloist, orchestra leader and chamber musician with performances spanning throughout United States.

Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Tatiana began playing violin at the age of 7 and made her professional debut at 14 playing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. Tatiana received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow, Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School.

Tatiana frequently appears as a guest soloist and concertmaster with leading early music ensembles in the US.  In 2016 Tatiana was named the recipient of the Jeffrey Thomas Award  which is given annually to one musician of unusual promise and precocious achievement.

That same year Chulochnikova’s debut CD was released worldwide on Toccata Classics recording label (London, UK). A world premiere of violin music by composer Theodore Akimenko, the album earned very enthusiastic reviews including Fanfare Magazine (US) which called it “a fascinating release” and Classica Magazine (France) which described the interpretation as demonstrating a  “total commmitment and a free lyricism that goes straight to the heart”. Chulochnikova’s second solo album was recorded at the Steppenwolf Studio in the Netherlands in November 2018. It will be released worldwide on one of the oldest and largest independent classical  labels in the United States – Centaur Records – in the summer of 2019.

Praised by critics in Europe and the United States for his lyricism, virtuosity and an intensity of performance, pianist Martin Labazevitch appeared in many concert halls and festivals in Poland, Ukraine, Finland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Israel, Japan, South Korea and the United States. He is a recipient of many awards and recognitions in piano competitions in the U.S., Spain and Japan. Mr. Labazevitch has been a soloist with leading orchestras in Spain, Poland, Lithuania, Japan, and the United States.

Highlights of the most recent seasons include performances with the Beethoven Academy Orchestra, Rzeszow Philharmonic and Lutoslawski Chamber Orchestra in Poland, performances at the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall, recital tour in Spain with his duo partner, cellist Rafal Jezierski, performance at the Tedmed conference at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, performances at the Weill Recital Hall in New York as the winner of the La Gesse Foundation auditions.

In 2015, Mr. Labazevitch released his first commercial recording on Delos Music label, to very enthusiastic reviews in Poland, France, Germany and the United States. Fanfare Magazine wrote: “He plays with a superb control of rubato and has the most beautiful way of melting a phrase.” ConcertoNet mentioned Mr. Labazevitch’s, “shimmering grandeur and eloquent precision that could even rival that of Arthur Rubinstein.”
