About Elena Urioste, violin

Elena Urioste, amusingly hailed by The Washington Post as “a drop-dead beauty who plays with equal parts passion, sensuality, brains and humor,” was recently selected as a BBC New Generation Artist and has been featured on the cover of Symphony magazine.  She has given acclaimed performances with major orchestras throughout the United States, including the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras; New York and Buffalo Philharmonics; and the Chicago, San Francisco, National, Atlanta, Baltimore, Detroit, Symphony Orchestras, as well as appearances abroad with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic, BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Edmonton Symphony, Würzburg Philharmonic, and Hungary’s Orchestra Dohnányi Budafok and MAV Orchestras.
