Overlooked Treasures: A program of romantic violin pieces

EMIL ISRAEL CHUDNOVSKY hearkens back to the grand romantic tradition of the golden age of violinists. His lush sound and inimitable ability to connect with audiences have garnered him accolades from listeners, presenters, and critics alike. Recent seasons have included his debut last season at the Seoul Arts Center in South Korea with the KammerSymphonie Berlin, and his inaugural recording with the St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra. Equally notable benchmarks include Chudnovsky’s debut with the Orquesta Filarmónica de Jalisco in Mexico, when he replaced an indisposed soloist for a previously unknown concerto on ten days’ notice. Other noteworthy appearances included Chudnovsky’s recital debut in New Zealand, and concert debuts with the Macon Symphony, the Palm Beach Symphony and the Orquesta de la Ciudad de los Reyes in Lima, Peru. His chamber music activity has also been intense, with repeated festival appearances at the famed Newport Music Festival and at Germany’s Henselt Festival, as well as concerts at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, New York’s Merkin Hall and London’s Wigmore Hall.

A veteran of the competition circuit, Chudnovsky holds nine international awards, including top prizes from the Paganini, Szeryng and Enescu international competitions and 1st Prizes from the Curci (Naples), Valsesia-Musica (Milan), and the Young Artists Competition of the National Federation of Music Clubs.

Chudnovsky has performed throughout Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East. In the United States, he has played recitals and concerts with orchestra in Washington DC, California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Jersey, Connecticut, Illinois, Ohio, Virginia, South Dakota, and New York – including multiple appearances at Carnegie Recital Hall. At the Encore Summer Festival in Ohio, his debut performance gave him the unique distinction of being the only non-CIM student or alumnus invited to appear on the Festival’s Blue Ribbon series.


Michael Sheppard studied with the legendary Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory. He was selected by the American Pianists Association as a Classical Fellow, which designation led to the recording of his Harmonia Mundi CD of 2007. In 2018, another recording will be released by Azica, a Cleveland-based label distributed worldwide by Naxos Records. He has performed solo recitals and concertos around the world, as well as across the USA.

Michael gives master classes, teaches regularly and plays with some of the top singers and instrumentalists around; he also coaches singers, instrumentalists, and conductors, and also conducts occasionally himself. Also a composer since the single digits of age, he has worked closely with fellow composers John Corigliano, Christopher Theofanidis, Michael Hersch, Robert Sirota and with the late Nicholas Maw, demonstrating a deep love of new music; his eclectic tastes also led him recently to musical-direct performances of Jason Robert Brown's Broadway show “The Last Five Years”.

He is a native of Philadelphia and resides in Baltimore, where he works at both the Peabody Conservatory and the Baltimore School for the Arts.
