Romanian violinist Irina Muresanu is concerting in March at the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York, with the Walden Chamber Players, and in Boston with the Boston Classical Orchestra.
Irina Muresanu (violin) has won international acclaim as an outstanding young soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician having achieved top prizes in numerous international violin competitions. Her engagements as soloist include concerts with the Boston Pops, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande (Geneva), the Metropolitan Orchestra (Montreal), the Transvaal Philharmonic (Pretoria), the Boston Philharmonic, the Pro Arte Chamber Orchestra, and the Miami Symphony Orchestra among others.
Founded in 1997, the Walden Chamber Players (Irina Muresanu, Christof Huebner, Ashima Scripp) present educational curricula and concerts in a format that highlights the belief that music is the human experience translated into sound. Walden presents a new concept of a classical concert both in content and presentation. They draw from a rich palette of sources and styles, mixing and matching the works of both classical and contemporary composers with an eye to new understandings and discoveries.

Krenek: Parvula Corona Musicalis op. 122, for string trio
Augusta Read Thomas: Silent Moon for violin and viola
Praesent: Sounds of Wood trio for violin, viola and cello
Praesent: Sonata Regina per S.F., for violin solo
