Alessandra Tinozzi

For violinist Elena Urioste, the year 2019 has brought a shout-out from New York’s WQXR-FM as one of an elite group of classical artists commanding attention. On its website the station profiles and pictures its “19 for 19,” described as “a group of artists we love that includes long-time heroes, established favorites and newcomers set for stardom.” Along with Urioste—whose face leads the array of musician photos in the feature—WQXR’s pantheon for 2019 includes violinists Anne Akiko Meyers and Nicola Benedetti, cellists Steven Isserlis and Sheku Kanneh-Mason, pianist Inon Barnaton, bassist Xavier Foley, soprano Julia Bullock, conductor Teddy Abrams, and the instrumental collective known as The Knights. “We’re planning all sorts of exciting collaborations across our platforms throughout the year,” the station proclaims, “so stay tuned.” The profile on Urioste takes note of her innovative venture called Intermission, a yoga-and-music initiative she runs with fellow violinist Melissa White, and cites current highlights from Urioste’s career as a performer and recording artist. “This season she plays such monuments of the solo repertoire as the Beethoven, Barber, Korngold and Tchaikovsky concertos … her latest album is Estrellita, a collection of glittering miniatures performed with pianist Tom Poster.” Read the full story here.
