Called “top-notch in all respects” (Sequenza 21) and “an artist to be reckoned with” (Gramophone), violinist and violist Miranda Cuckson is widely acclaimed by audiences for her enthralling live performances of a wide range of repertoire, from early eras to the most current creations. In demand both as a soloist and chamber musician, she appears in major concert halls and festivals, as well as at universities, galleries and informal spaces. She has in recent years been one of the most sought-after performers of contemporary music, and has produced and presented concerts in a variety of formats as director of Nunc and in collaboration with many other organizations and people. She is enthusiastic about the role of the performer-interpreter in the musical creative process, and about supporting the culture of America and other countries. She has released nine lauded solo CDs, including music by Michael Hersch, Ralph Shapey and concertos by Korngold and Ponce. Her recording of Luigi Nono’s ”La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura” for violin and electronics was named a Best Classical Recording of 2012 by the New York Times. In January 2015, she will make her first CD for ECM Records in Europe, of duo music by Bartók, Schnittke and Lutoslawski.
