Violinist Lilit Hartunian enjoys a varied and active chamber music career, with upcoming performances at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, MassMOCA, Jordan Hall, the Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum. Described as “brilliantly rhapsodic” by the Harvard Crimson, recent projects have ranged from the Boston Symphony Orchestra Insights Series – in which she performed contemporary works on Symphony Hall stage – to Vellumsound, her one-year chamber music residency at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, in which she curated and performed a season of chamber music paired with visual art in the museum’s collection. Praised for her "Paganiniesque virtuosity" and “captivating and luxurious tone” by the Boston Musical Intelligencer, Ms. Hartunian is regularly heard on stage premiering works written for her by leading composers, and has appeared as soloist in the SEAMUS, SCI, NYCEMF, Open Sound, and Third Practice festivals. Ms. Hartunian performs with ensembles including Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Odyssey Opera, Vermont Symphony, Sound Icon, Callithumpian Consort, Guerilla Opera, and Ludovico Ensemble. Highlights from the 2020 season include a world premiere commission from Marti Epstein, the release of a duo album with pianist John McDonald of music by Ryan Vigil for Mode Records, and guest appearances with the Grammy nominated, self-conducted chamber orchestra A Far Cry.
