Violinist Tatiana Chulochnikova has been praised by the press for her “fiercely pointed” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “fine performances” (The Washington Post), “dark plush romantic violin sound' (New York Concert Review) and 'thrilling technique and bravura style" (San Francisco Classical Voice). Born in Kharkiv, Ukraine, Tatiana began playing violin at the age of seven and made her professional debut at fourteen performing Bruch’s violin concerto with the Kharkiv Philharmonic. An award winning violinist, Tatiana Chulochnikova received her professional training at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow as well as Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School.
