About the Musicians

Kate Dillingham kate dillingham headshotenjoys a diverse career as a soloist, collaborative artist and is an avid proponent of the music of living composers. Following her New York debut, which featured world premieres of works by Augusta Read Thomas and Pulitzer Prize-winner Jennifer Higdon, the press deemed her “an excellent cellist; dignified, intelligent, and compelling. An adventurous, dedicated champion of contemporary music . . . an extraordinary performer who displayed musical insight and emotional depth . . .”

She has performed as a soloist with The St. Petersburg Philharmonic, The Moscow Symphony Orchestra, The Salzburg Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra. She has appeared at Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lincoln Center, Bargemusic and Symphony Space in New York City. Recent highlights include concerts at the Tsereteli Gallery in Moscow, Russia, Weill Recital Hall and The Dimenna Center in New York City.

Ms. Dillingham was a student of Bernard Greenhouse at the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University and Maria Tchaikovskaya at the Moscow Conservatory. A long association with Mr. Greenhouse led to collaboration on an edition of the Sonatas for Violoncello and Keyboard BWV 1027-1029 by J.S. Bach, published by G. Schirmer Inc., which she presented in a combined concert and lecture at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. She has recently recorded these works with renowned harpsichordist, Jory Vinikour for Affetto Records.

Kate’s enthusiasm for broadening the range and repertoire of the cello has led her to commission, perform, and record music written by composers of the 21st century. Ms. Dillingham has recorded four albums of varied repertoire: Haydn Cello Concertos with the Moscow Chamber Orchestra, Lutoslawki and Herbert Cello Concertos with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra, music of Debussy, Honegger and Fauré, and CROSSSINGS; New Music For Cello, all of which are available at itunes, and wherever great music is found.

Jory Vinikour is recognized as one of the outstanding harpsichordists oJory Vinikour headshotf his generation. A highly-diversified career takes him to the world's most important festivals, concert halls, and opera houses as recitalist and concerto soloist, partner to many of today's finest instrumental and vocal artists, coach, and conductor.

His recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations, released on Delos International in 2001, received excellent reviews throughout the world. John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune named it as one of 2001's Top Ten Classical CDs, an honor that was also accorded to Mr. Vinikour's recording of Bach's Toccatas in 1999. His debut recording for Sono Luminus, the Complete Harpsichord Works of Jean-Philippe Rameau, was nominated for a 2012 GRAMMY® award in the category of Best Classical Solo Instrumental Recording. Mr. Vinikour received a second GRAMMY® nomination for his Sono Luminous Disc Toccatas.
