Elena Urioste

Idioma disponible: inglés
Violinist Elena Urioste is well known as a soloist and as a chamber music collaborator with various players, including her husband, pianist Tom Poster. She is a co-founder of the Kaleidoscope Chamber Collective. Urioste was born in Hartford, Connecticut, in April of 1986 but grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Lansdale. Her parents enjoyed classical music but were not musicians themselves. When Urioste was two, she viewed violinist Itzhak Perlman's appearance on the children's television show Sesame Street and asked her parents for a violin. After several years, they gave in, and she was able to take violin lessons at her public school and then from private teachers. Urioste performed at 13 with the Philadelphia Orchestra and graduated from the Curtis Institute of Music, studying with Joseph Silverstein, Pamela Frank, and Ida Kavafian. She went on to the Juilliard School, studying with Joel Smirnoff. Urioste took top prizes in the junior and senior Sphinx Competition for young players of minority backgrounds, and that led to a debut at Carnegie Hall in New York in 2004 and to the release of an album on the White Pine label in 2008. She also performed at New York's Lincoln Center in 2009, and she earned a Salon de Virtuosi career grant. Another milestone in Urioste's career development was her designation as a BBC New Generation Artist from 2012 to 2014. Urioste has divided her time between the U.S. and Britain, and she has appeared with many top orchestras in both places, including the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, and London Philharmonic, as well as the Boston Pops and the Malaysian Philharmonic. Her recital career has taken her to London's Wigmore Hall, Kennedy Center, and the Konzerthaus in Berlin, among other leading venues. Urioste is an enthusiastic chamber musician who has collaborated with such luminaries as Mitsuko Uchida, Kim Kashkashian, and members of the Guarneri Quartet. She founded the Chamber Music by the Sea Festival and remains its artistic director. In 2009, Urioste took up yoga, and she established a program called Intermission that combines practice in music, yoga, and meditation. She made several albums for the BIS label in the mid-2010s. In 2020, Urioste moved to the Orchid Classics label, recording To the Spring, an album of Grieg's violin sonatas. That year, Urioste and Poster experienced a COVID-related lockdown in Philadelphia, making use of the time by posting 88 online videos in a #UriPosteJukebox online series, performing music requested by listeners (anything for violin and piano or that they could arrange for the combination). The project was highly successful, winning the Royal Philharmonic Society's Inspiration Award and spawning a recording, The Jukebox Album, released on Orchid Classics in 2021.
