Appreciated for her elegance and effortless ability, Murray creates a special bond with listeners through her mature phrasing and subtle sweetness. Her programming reveals musical intelligence. Her sound, sophisticated bowing and choice of vibrato remind us of her musical background and influences, principally, Yuval Yaron (a student of Gingold & Heifetz) and Franco Gulli. Winner of an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2004, Tai Murray was named a BBC New Generation Artist (2008 through 2010).
She has performed as guest soloist on the stages of such halls as the Barbican, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall, Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens, and Shanghai’s Concert Hall. Performing with such ensembles as the Atlanta Symphony, BBC Scottish Symphony, and Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar. Now a resident of Berlin, Tai Murray’s appearances close to home include Berlin’s Konzerthaus and Kammermusiksaal at the Philharmonie, projects with the Philharmonic Staatsorchester of Mainz and Düsseldorfer Symphoniker, and tours with the Brandenburger Symphoniker and Niederrheinische Sinfoniker.
Tai Murray plays a violin by Tomaso Balestrieri fecit Mantua ca. 1765, on generous loan from a private collection.
