Winner of numerous competitions and developing an outstanding career, Dana Zemtsov is one of the most promising viola soloists of her generation. Highlights in the past seasons include a performance of the Bartók Viola Concerto in Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, playing at the Utrecht Chamber Music Festival, and a recital in New York’s Carnegie Hall. In 2012, she signed an exclusive record deal with Channel Classics for three recordings, of which two “Enigma” and “Romantic Metamorphoses,” have been received with great success. Zemtsov’s latest is titled “Essentia” – an exploration of music strongly influenced by the composer’s own culture. She performs works by Bartók, Kugel, Bloch, and Paganini.
