American violinist and violist Annelle Kazumi Gregory is a laureate of international competitions, concert soloist, and recording artist. She is 1st Prize & Audience Choice Award winner of the 2017 National Sphinx Competition and a Laureate of the 2013 Stradivarius International Violin Competition.
Annelle’s love of Russian music has led her to discover and revive forgotten works of great Russian composers, presenting these works in concert and in recordings. In 2017 she released the first-ever CD of Rachmaninoff’s complete violin/piano works, recorded with pianist Alexander Sinchuk (Bridge Records). The CD received international acclaim and aired on radio stations across the U.S. and Europe. Her most recent CD, “Russian Music for Solo Violin and Orchestra” with conductor Dmitry Yablonsky and the Kiev Virtuosi Symphony Orchestra was released by Naxos in 2019.
