Elena Urioste named Artist of the Month by “Classical Music” magazine
Alessandra Tinozzi

American violinist Elena Urioste has been named Artist of the Month by the U.K.’s Classical Music magazine. In a November 28 interview with Toby Deller in that publication, she talks about finding balance in her artistic life among instrumental proficiency, intellectual knowledge of music, and “surprise and exploration”; her recent tour of northern Europe as soloist with the London-based Chineke! Orchestra; her early success as a two-time prizewinner in the Sphinx Competition for Black and Latinx string players; her entrepreneurial venture called Intermission, founded by Urioste with fellow violinist Melissa White and dedicated to bringing the benefits of yoga to musicians; and her ongoing musical partnership with pianist Tom Poster, with whom she recorded the CD Estrellita and a second album, consisting of music by Grieg, that is scheduled for release in spring 2020.
