Transatlantic women: Shiry Rashkovsky

International Concert Series 2020-21

Lauded by The Strad for her ‘beguiling... thrilling and exuberant’ Royal Festival Hall debut, we are honoured to welcome back violist Shiry Rashkovsky to Royal Holloway. Her recent recording of Kate Whitley’s Viola Concerto with Multi-Story Orchestra and Christopher Stark for NMC Records was described as ‘fearless’ in The Guardian and has been featured on BBC Radio 3. She has performed in such venues as the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican, Royal Albert Hall, and Cadogan Hall, and further afield, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Paris Theatre Champs Elysee, Berlin Philharmonie, among others.

This recital features works by women from both sides of the Atlantic, celebrating different forms of expression spanning the past three centuries to today.

Clara Schumann (1819-1896): Three Romances 
Maria Theresia von Paradis (1759-1824): Sicilienne arr. Shiry Rashkovsky
Nadia Boulanger (1887-1979): 3 Pieces for cello and piano (arranged for viola and piano)
Rebecca Clarke (1886-1979): Sonata

Our streamed event can be viewed on the dedicated Department of Music YouTube channel for 30-days after premiere (link embedded).
