Notes and Editorial Reviews

Violin duo Miolina releases here their self titled first album. It features ten recent works written and arranged by a unique mix of composers, including Lynn Bechtold, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Dan Cooper, Judd Greenstein, Gene Pritsker, and Karen Tanaka. They are joined by percussionists Ian Ding and Eric Millstein for one track. Miolina is named after Mioi and Lina (the Italian version of Lynn). Violinists Mioi Takeda and Lynn Bechtold met while freelancing in NYC and realized it would be fun to form a violin duo! Since 2012 they’ve performed throughout NYC, as well as in cities such as Birmingham, Chicago, Los Angeles, Paris Tokyo, and Washington DC. Miolina specializes in violin duo music that employs the natural beauty and sound of the Read more instruments, with or without electronics and video. They enjoy collaborating on new compositions with composers, as well as discovering hidden gems of the past. To date, they have premiered over two dozen violin duos. As a member of New Music USA’s Impact Cohort, support is made possible with funding from The Scherman Foundation’s Katherine S. and Axel G Rosin Fund. Read less
