2020

Solomia Soroka and Arthur Greene

The Soroka-Greene Duo is a husband-wife team of international prize-winning soloists, presenting brilliant and personal performances of standard violin-piano repertoire as well as many unique and fascinating lesser-known works.

Solomia Soroka, born in L’viv, Ukraine, made her solo debut at age 10, playing the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto with the L’viv Philharmonic Orchestra. Her playing combines the powerful background of the Ukrainian system with a passionate exploration of lesser played music, especially American and Ukrainian.

Arthur Greene was born in New York, and studied at Juilliard with Martin Canin. Mr. Greene was hailed as “a profound musician” by the Washington Post, and “a masterful pianist with a massive technique” by the New York Times. He is on the piano faculty of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Solomia and Arthur made the first recording of the four Bolcom Sonatas, and Solomia discovered otherwise unplayed exquisite works of Arthur Hartmann. They have performed together throughout Europe, the United States, and Asia. We look forward to their debut in Slovakia at the 2020 Indian Summer in Levoca Festival.
