Nicholas Di Eugenio. Praised by the Cleveland Plain Dealer for his "invigorating, silken" playing and "mysterious atmosphere," violinist Nicholas DiEugenio leads a versatile musical life as a multi-faceted performer of composers from Buxtehude to Carter.
Projects this year include a special collaboration with conductor Jeffery Meyer and the St. Petersburg Chamber Philharmonic in Russia’s prestigious Small Hall in a violin concerto written by composer Loren Loicano. Mr. DiEugenio and pianist Mimi Solomon perform as a duo in the United States and in Europe; last season, recitals in France and in New York included a cycle of the complete Brahms sonatas. Mr. DiEugenio is also a frequent guest artist with the Finger Lakes Chamber Ensemble.
Mr. DiEugenio has performed as soloist with the Cleveland Bach Consort, National Repertory Orchestra, Cleveland Pops, CIM Orchestra, and Interlochen's World Youth Symphony Orchestra. A prizewinner at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition as a founding member of both the Lorien Trio and Biava Quartet, he has also been the first violinist of the iO Quartet in New York.
In demand as a teacher, Mr. DiEugenio has been invited to give masterclasses at the University of British Columbia, Penn State University, the University of Arkansas, the University of North Dakota, and in high schools throughout the US. During the year, Mr. DiEugenio teaches at the Ithaca College School of Music, where he is Assistant Professor of Violin and Chamber Music.
