American violinist Elena Urioste, featured on the cover of Symphony magazine as an emerging artist to watch, has been praised by critics for her lush tone, the nuanced lyricism of her playing, and her commanding stage presence. Urioste's debut performances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 2010 were praised by three separate critics for their "hypnotic delicacy," "expressive poise," and "lyrical sensitivity." Since she first appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra at age 13, she has made acclaimed debuts with major orchestras throughout the United States, including the Cleveland Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, and the Boston Pops.
Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Martinez has been lauded by The New York Times as "compelling, elegant, and incisive," and has quickly established a reputation as a versatile artist who combines "panache and poetry" (Dallas Morning News) with a "sense of grace and clarity" (The Star Ledger). Martinez has won numerous national and international prizes and awards. Her most recent accomplishments include first prize and audience award at the Anton G. Rubinstein International Piano Competition in Dresden. Presenter: Harriman-Jewell Series
