The Nouvelle Génération Orchestra welcomes its new artistic director
Montreal, Monday, June 9, 2013 - The Nouvelle Génération Orchestra is proud to announce the nomination of Ms. Natasha Turovsky as its new artistic director.
Born in Russia, violinist Natasha Turovsky was a member of I Musici de Montréal Chamber Orchestra from 1983 until 2011. She has performed in the world most prestigious halls, such as the Lincoln Center in New York, the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Bruxelles, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Kioi Hall in Tokyo, and the Victoria Hall à Genève. As a soloist and chamber musician, she participated in more than fifty recordings with the Chandos and Analekta Record labels. I Musici’s recording of Gorecki, Pärt and Schnittke, in which she was featured as a soloist, won two Opus Awards for “Recording Event of the Year” and “Best Recording - Contemporary Music”.
In addition to her distinguished career as a musician, Natasha Turovsky is an extremely prolific artist and has produced hundreds of paintings and monotypes, along with several opera sets and series of paintings based on such musical cycles as The Song of the Earth by Mahler and Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky.
