Elena Urioste and Tom Poster
As a violinist, Elena Urioste has given acclaimed performances as a soloist with major orchestras throughout the United States. Abroad, Elena has appeared with the London Philharmonic, Hallé, CBSO, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestras, BBC Symphony Orchetsra and many others. She has collaborated with celebrated conductors including Sir Mark Elder and Vasily Petrenko and has performed as a featured soloist in Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium, the Concertgebouw, and the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall. Elena is a former BBC New Generation Artist (2012-14) and has been featured on the covers of Strings, Symphony, and BBC Music magazines.
Elena believes that we should all strive to spend less time looking at screens, that Oxford commas should be required, and that people should clap whenever they feel moved to do so during concerts.
Tom Poster is a musician whose skills and passions extend well beyond the conventional role of the concert pianist. He has been described as “a marvel, [who] can play anything in any style” (The Herald), “mercurially brilliant” (The Strad), and as having “a beautiful tone that you can sink into like a pile of cushions” (BBC Music). Tom has performed over forty concertos from Mozart to Ligeti with many of the leading orchestras around the world. He has premiered solo, chamber and concertante works by many leading composers, made multiple appearances at the BBC Proms, and his exceptional versatility has put him in great demand at festivals internationally.
