 Update me on new releases by Talvi

Ilkka Talvi (b1948)

Finnish-born violinist Ilkka Talvi was initially self-taught and later studied with famous teachers in Helsinki, Vienna (Odnoposoff), Paris (Bouillon) and in the United States (Heifetz at USC and Galamian at the Curtis Institute). Talvi has performed as soloist and in recital in many European countries, as well as in many American cities. At the age of twenty he became a faculty member at the Sibelius Academy, Finland’s leading conservatory. He has made numerous recordings, many of which have been world premières, including concertos and other works by Bach, Hindemith, Diamond, Albert, Klami, Piston, Creston and many others, on the Delos, Nonesuch, Angel, Naxos and Finlandia labels. He has performed regularly as soloist in concertos by Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Brahms, Hindemith, Shostakovich and Glazunov, among others. After immigrating to the United States, he worked for motion picture and recording studios in Los Angeles and served as principal in the LA Chamber Orchestra, before moving to Seattle in the 1980s. Talvi has served as concertmaster of the Mostly Mozart Festival, Malmö Symphony, and Waterloo Festival, as well as the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera. He currently teaches at Seattle Pacific University and is concertmaster for the Rainier Symphony.
