BIO

 

Praised in the media for her 'dark plush romantic violin sound' (New York Concert Review) and 'thrilling technique and bravura style" (San Francisco Classical Voice) violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova is pursuing an active career as a soloist and chamber musician with performances spanning throughout the United States. Tatiana frequently appears as a guest soloist and concertmaster with the Washington Bach Consort in Washington, DC; Period Instrument Orchestra of St. Peter’s Church and the Four Nations Ensemble in New York City as well as American Bach Soloists in San Francisco,CA. In 2015 Tatiana has been named the winner of the Jeffrey Thomas Award 2016 which is given annually to one musician of unusual promise and precocious achievement. As the winner, Ms. Chulochnikova performed series of concerts as a concerto soloist in American Bach Soloists' 2016 season playing E major violin concerto by J.S. Bach as well as her own historical reconstruction of the famous organ Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565). Tatiana's playing received highly enthusiastic reviews: it was described as 'finely articulated and assertive' with 'impressive brilliance'. Born in Ukraine, Chulochnikova began playing violin at the age of 7 and made her professional debut at 14 playing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. Around the same time, her own Trio for violin, flute, and cello was awarded Second Prize at the International Young Composers Competition in Kiev. Chulochnikova received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky College of Music and Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. She also holds degrees from Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School. Tatiana gave solo and chamber music recitals in the U.S, Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, Ukraine and Russia. In the U.S. Tatiana performed in most major concert halls including Alice Tully Hall, Kennedy Center and Severance Hall. She also made her solo and chamber music debut at the Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in 2013. Tatiana’s recent solo and chamber music performances took place at such venues as the Clark Museum, Kaufman Center’s Merkin Concert Hall and Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art; solo recitals in New York City, Washington, DC, Annapolis, MD and Minneapolis, MN. In the past Tatiana collaborated with such conductors as Masaaki Suzuki, Christopher Hogwood, Philippe Herreweghe and Pierre Boulez; and ensembles such as Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Apollo’s Fire, Handel and Haydn Society Orchestra. Tatiana Chulochnikova is the founder of The Rubinstein Music Society - the organization which strives to promote classical music masterpieces of the Romantic Era from North America and Europe and to uncover the largely ignored romantic repertoire from Ukraine and Russia. Bringing this valuable and rich repertoire to the attention of both music lovers and professionals, the RMS is committed to conducting research, organizing live performances, staging lectures and sponsoring recording projects.

 

The most recent project of the RMS was a production of the first ever recorded collection of works by Theodore Akimenko. Until now this wonderful composer had only one claim to fame: he was Stravinsky’s first teacher. The recent review of this world premiere recording- “Theodore Akimenko: Works for Violin and Piano”-  noted that the music is “played with  fullest commitment, romantic fervour and heart”. Forthcoming projects of RMS will include CD recordings which will be released on Toccata Classics, described as being among “the most fearlessly enterprising labels on earth”, by Fanfare Magazine. The partnership with Toccata Press publishing company will allow RMS to commission and publish essays and biographies of some of the finest composers of the past. Forgotten and unfairly unnoticed, their names and pieces they produced will be brought back to light, opening another door into the world of music discovery.

 

 

 “ Richly introspective. Recommended.” -Fanfare Magazine, January 2017 “Fascinating release.. incredibly eloquent” -Fanfare Magazine, September 2016 "It was so exquisitely played that I felt as if I were hearing it for the first time-clean and fresh as a spring day." [Bach's E major Concerto] "Finely articulated and assertive [playing]." "[Her] thrilling technique and bravura style were more than apparent." -San Francisco Classical Voice, January 2016 "Ms. Chulochnikova played it with impressive brilliance, articulating cleanly, with virtuosic double stops, carefully shaping the polyphonic lines, creating an ebb and flow that carried the listener along." [Bach's Toccata and Fugue] - Classical Sonoma, January 2016 " Ms. Chulochnikova has a real feel for the grammar of the Classical period. Her phrasing and intonation were true and singing.” "Violinist’s tone suddenly bloomed into the dark plush Russian romantic violin tone I associate with her Moscow training.” - New York Concert Review, September 2014

My ultimate goal as a teacher is to educate and inspire my students, provoke and develop their interest and love to music and the violin. As a pedagogue, I strive to create an inspiring but challenging environment for my students. While not solely using a single method or school, I use a combination of all knowledge I earned as a pedagogue on the multiple continents. My teaching curriculum combines the finest aspects of the Russian and American traditions. It is comprehensive and student oriented, with a strong emphasis on individual development.

Having had an extensive training in all aspects of the String Pedagogy, Music Psychology, History of the Performance Practice,  I guide each student into the discovery of the most natural, relaxed technique and develop a set of skills necessary to be able to understand, analyze and interpret music of various styles and genres.  It is of the utmost importance to build a solid foundation for each student by encouraging and stimulating true appreciation of all the arts.

I have a passion for teaching and while realizing that not each of my students will necessarily become a professional,  I find it very rewarding to witness how being exposed to classical music through learning enriches their life experience, helps to improve focus and teaches them to work through challenges; and reach their goals.
