One of America's finest up and coming virtuoso violinists, Emil Altschuler, performs at a world class standard and possesses a commanding stage presence. He holds degrees from The Juilliard School and The Yale School of Music. Master violinist, Erick Friedman, wrote of him: “…a very gifted violinist who possesses the talent and capability to become a truly outstanding violinist of his generation…and sound and accuracy of intonation that are truly extraordinary."
His brilliant technique and vigorous performance energy has received ovations in venues such as Lincoln Center, San Francisco’s Helen Von Ammon’s Emerging Artist Series, The Aspen Music Festival, and Italy’s Castello di Galeazza. As a featured soloist, he has appeared with the Aspen Young Artist’s Orchestra, the Binghamton Philharmonic and the Binghamton University Chamber Orchestra. This season he is engaged to perform the Chausson’s ‘Poeme’ and Sarasate’s ‘Zigeunerweisen’.
Inviting new audiences, Emil has recently teamed up with Belgian guitar phenomenon Jérôme Mouffe in the AM Duo, performing Spanish, Gypsy, Tango and contemporary works alongside classical masterpieces. The Hardwick Gazette raves of them “coordination was spectacular, with sensitive phrasing and a depth of feeling in their touch” and The Armenian Weekly holds them as “musicians who are also artists”.
Emil has also taken interest in transcribing and arranging pieces from modern and popular genres such as Rock and Folk. Paganini’s 20th Caprice is recorded on his debut album “Emil Altschuler – Violin”, arranged with his brother Josiah Altschuler, with a gypsy jazz style guitar accompaniment. He is also a featured artist on his brother’s first album "Murder Ballads and Love Songs for Cello and Voice". His latest album due this spring will consist of works by Chuasson, Sarasate, Paganini, Ysaye, and compositions of his own based on modern themes. He currently teaches at the Cambridge Center for Adult Education and the New School of Music in Boston,MA.
