Internationally celebrated and Grammy nominated violinist Anastasia Khitruk is a champion of rarely performed works. Through her World Premieres, concert performances and recordings of both historic and contemporary composers she has gained a superb reputation as a masterful interpreter of older works from a modern perspective and a strong advocate for new voices, all of which she performs with passionate and intense musicality. The Strad has called her, "...unquestionably a talent of the first rank." ClassicsToday.com has said she is a "remarkable artist," with "flashy, fiery style and impeccable technique."
Anastasia, a laureate of the "Premio Paganini," has performed in festivals and as a soloist with internationally acclaimed orchestras in Abu Dhabi, Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Dubai, France, Italy, Russia, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, the United States, Sweden, Switzerland and Poland. She earned a 2007 Grammy nomination for her performance of Miklos Rozsa's Violin Concerto and Sinfonia Concertante with conductor Dmitry Yablonsky and the Russian Philharmonic Orchestra. This CD was honored with a nomination for Best Solo Performance with Orchestra. She also premiered and collaborated in the creation of a new live music score accompanying the first Oscar-winning silent film Wings.
Anastasia comes from a musical and artistic family. Her talent was immediately recognized when she made her orchestral debut at the age of eight. After immigrating to America, Ms. Khitruk continued the violin studies that she had begun at Moscow's Central Music School with Dora Schwartzberg, Zinaida Gilels, and Dorothy DeLay at Mannes College and The Juilliard School.
