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.”

In their liner notes for this string of estrellitas (‘small stars’), Elena Urioste and Tom Poster admit to a shared love for ‘an old-world, golden sound and for melodies that tug at the heartstrings.' This has resulted in a deeply personal collection of miniatures full of winks, sighs and tears aimed at transporting the listener to bygone eras of fireside salon concerts. With a few exceptions, including Elgar’s Chanson de Nuit and Salut d’amour, the pieces are arrangements by the great violinists of that bygone, golden age: Auer, Kreisler, Zimbalist, Heifetz … while the originals they are based upon range from Gluck’s Melodie from Orpheus and Euridice and Liszt’s Consolation No. 3 to Beau soir by Debussy and Estrellita by Manuel Ponce. In a closing section Elena Urioste and Tom Poster also pay their respects to the Great American Songbook, with new arrangements, signed Tom Poster, of Moon River, When I Fall in Love and Over the Rainbow.

Latest Acclaim

The London Schools Symphony Orchestra appeared positively inspired for its partnership of Elena Urioste. The Barber Violin Concerto poses several problems for soloist and orchestra. From those first bars, it was clear that Urioste and conductor Richard Farnes were as one, allowing the music to speak and express the composer’s originality and expressive character.
