Violinist Tatiana Porshneva captivates audiences around the world. In 2003 Ms. Porshneva joined the Russian National Orchestra and soon thereafter was appointed Assistant Concertmaster. In this position she has worked with such eminent conductors and soloists as Mikhail Pletnev, Mstislav Rostropovich, Gidon Kremer, Vladimir Jurowski, Alexander Lazarev, Michel Plasson, Nikolaj Znaider and Joshua Bell.
A graduate of the prestigious Moscow State Conservatory, and its affiliated Music High School, Ms. Porshneva began her music studies at age five in her native city on the Black Sea, Evpatoria, Ukraine. Russia's New Names Foundation selected her as one of the nation's bright young talents, an honor that led to frequent appearances as a soloist with chamber and symphony orchestras. Since 2008 she has been an instructor at the Moscow State Conservatory.
Her desire to perform new works led Ms. Porshneva to establish the RNO chamber ensemble Four Strings in 2006, and she has since been the group's Artistic Director.
