Bio

Violinist Elicia Silverstein is rapidly garnering praise for her nuanced, bold and insightful performances of repertoire ranging from the 17th to the 21st century.  A performer on both historical and modern instruments, Silverstein is equally at home as a soloist with orchestra, giving recitals and playing chamber music.  Her inventive and thoughtful approach to concert programming, as well as the sincerity and exuberance she brings to musical communication, distinguishes Silverstein as one of the most important voices of her generation. 

Over the past several years, Silverstein has appeared regularly as a soloist and chamber musician throughout Europe and the United States. She made her London recital debut in 2015 with a sold out concert at the Spitalfields Music Summer Festival, performing a programme of unaccompanied works for violin from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Subsequently, she was featured as a soloist in the 21st Ambronay European Baroque Academy tour, performing the Telemann Concerto for Three Violins with Enrico Onofri and British-Italian violinist Mayah Kadish in Italy, France, Slovenia and Portugal. She has performed as a soloist at the Brighton (UK) and Berkeley (US) Early Music Festivals, the Stroud Green Festival (UK) Capella Cracoviensis’ Musica Poetica Festival (PL), and the Retoryka i muzyka Festival (PL), among others, and at venues including King’s College Chapel (Cambridge, UK), the Muziekgebouw Aan’t Ij (NL), and Jordan Hall (US). Silverstein’s performances have been broadcast on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’, National Public Radio’s ‘From the Top’, on KCET and on Swiss and Italian national television. She has performed chamber music with such esteemed musicians as Richard Egarr, Robert Levin, Mauro Valli, Ani Kavafian, Paul Coletti, members of the Ebène Quartet, and has performed as a member of the Handel and Haydn Society (US), Ensemble Odyssee (NL), and the Knights (US). She is currently on trial with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, with whom she performed as one of the two viola d’amore soloists on their St John Passion tour in March 2016.

Silverstein’s 2016-17 concert season includes her first all-solo Bach recital in Amsterdam (NL), recitals with fortepianist Naruhiko Kawaguchi (NL); Bach Three Violin Concerto with the London Bach Society and violinists Rodolfo Richter (director) and Colin Scobie; and a tour with B’Rock (Baroque Orchestra Ghent) of Vivaldi L’estro Armonico, Ligeti ‘Ramifications’ and Steve Reich ‘Triple Quartet’. She will also collaborate with the cellist Mauro Valli and the theorbist Michele Pasotti on several chamber music projects.

Silverstein is fascinated by the music of Heinrich Ignaz Franz von Biber. She gave her first all-Biber recital to critical acclaim in Krakow in October 2015, and her video recording of his ‘Passagalia’ for unaccompanied violin has generated enormous attention and praise.  In collaboration with the London-based composer Roberto David Rusconi, who is composing a set of variations for her, Silverstein will further explore selected works from the ‘Mystery Sonatas’ both in performance and ultimately in recording, juxtaposed with Rusconi's new 'Tiepolo Variations'.

Silverstein was awarded a prestigious Netherlands-America Foundation Fulbright grant for 2013-2014 to study connections between avant-garde twentieth century Italian music and seventeenth-century stylus phantasticus music, under the supervision of Vera Beths, Anner Bylsma and Lucy van Dael at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, where she recently completed her Master of Music degree with the highest honours. She earned her Bachelor of Music degree as a student of Robert Lipsett and Arnold Steinhardt at The Colburn School’s Conservatory of Music in Los Angeles, where she was selected to perform as a soloist with the Colburn Orchestra on numerous occasions and also served as co-concertmaster from 2011-2013. Silverstein plays on a Jean-Baptiste Vuillaume violin crafted in Paris in 1856, copy of a Guarnerius del Gesu, and on bows made by René-William Groppe, Ralph Ashmead, and Gerhard Landwehr.
