Hideko Udagawa has performed extensively throughout the world and captivates international audiences with her artistry and enthusiasm. This violinist's latest album, Nostalgic Russia for Violin & Piano is set for USA release by Russian label Northern Flowers on 21 May 2021. A protege of legendary virtuoso Nathan Milstein, Ms. Udagawa's compelling program mirrors her long association with Russian music and culture. It spans from Dmitri Kabalevsky's haunting Improvisation Op.21 No.1 and Fritz Kreisler's transcription of the 'Hymn to the Sun' from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Golden Cockerel to Stravinsky's Chanson russe and characterful transcriptions of five pieces from Shostakovich's Preludes for piano Op.34. Other highlights include Valse sentimentale from Tchaikovsky's Six Pieces Op.51 and a transcription of Scriabin's sublime Nocturne Op.5 No.1. The album was recorded last November at the Church of St Silas the Martyr in north London in company with the Russian pianist Petr Limonov.
