Chamber Music

Elina has been paired up with great musicians for some fabulous music over the years, and she is always on the lookout for new projects. In 2017 she performed with Bulgarian violinist Stanichka Dimitrova at Weill Recital Hall, where the highlight of their program was the violin sonata by Milcho Leviev. In 2012 Elina recorded the complete Beethoven violin sonatas as part of the Elan Duo at Radford University in Virginia, after performing the works extensively throughout the US. She has worked with fantastic singers, performing Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Ives and Bernstein songs, and a song cycle by Lee Hoiby with soprano Jennie Foster. As part of the Baroque to Modern Concert Series in Trumbull, she performed Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time with clarinetist Sam Kaestner, violinist Andrew Smith and cellist Andrea Mills.

Well-versed in the standard and lesser known vocal and instrumental repertoire, Elina is a frequently requested pianist for Juilliard and MSM Prep auditions, local orchestra competitions, and recitals. She most recently performed with violinist Albert Markov in a recital featuring his own compositions at the Summit Music Festival and Institute at Manhattanville College.
