Praised for the “rapturous poetry” in his playing (American Record Guide) and as an “excellent” and “evocative” violinist (New York Times), Nicholas DiEugenio leads a versatile performing life as a chamber musician, leader, and soloist in music ranging from early baroque to current commissions. In this capacity, he performs in venues such as Glinka Hall in St. Petersburg, Trinity Wall St., Freiburg’s Ensemblehaus, and Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall. Together with pianist and duo partner Mimi Solomon, Nicholas is currently embarking on the project “Unraveling Beethoven,” a cycle of all ten violin sonatas combined with response works from contemporary composers. Their award-winning album of the same name was released in 2018 by New Focus Recordings.
Regarded as an inspiring teacher and formerly Assistant Professor of Violin at the Ithaca College School of Music, Nicholas continues as a faculty member of the Kinhaven Music School in Vermont during the summers. He holds degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music (B.M, M.M), and the Yale School of Music (D.M.A., A.D.). Nicholas is currently Assistant Professor of Violin at UNC Chapel Hill, and is co-artistic director of MYCO, a non-profit chamber music organization for middle and high school students.
