Press Release: Muresanu to Join University of Maryland Music Faculty


 Violin Virtuoso to Join the Faculty at the University of Maryland

Boston-based violinist Irina Muresanu has been recently appointed Assistant Professor of Violin at the University of Maryland School of Music. She will begin her time at UMD in the Fall of 2015.

Ms. Muresanu has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike with her exciting, elegant and heartfelt performances of the classic, romantic and modern repertoire. The Boston Globe has come to praise her as "not just a virtuoso, but an artist" and the Los Angeles Times has written that her "musical luster, melting lyricism and colorful conception made Irina Muresanu's performance especially admirable" while Strad Magazine called her Carnegie/Weill Hall performance "a first-rate recital." Irina Muresanu's performances have been frequently cited as among the Best of Classical Music Performances by the Boston Globe, and her recital in the Emerging Artist Celebrity Series was named one of the Top 10 musical events by the TAB Magazine.

Recent projects and performances include her recital program “Four Strings Around the World,” a solo violin recital featuring works of composers inspired by various musical cultures around the world. An early reviewer of the project wrote that “[W]hen the D Major section moves into D minor [in Bach’s Chaccone], it seemed as if the violin had had its heart broken and was crying. Muresanu’s performance was simply spectacular.” Other projects include the premiere of Thomas Oboe Lee’s Violin Concerto (dedicated to Ms. Muresanu), and a recording of William Bolcom’s complete Violin Sonatas, released on the Centaur Label.
