One of the most inspiring violinists of our time , Tatiana Samouil is in constant demand as a soloist, recording artist, chamber musician and pedagogue .
" Samouil's strong-willed, passionate and inspiring playing is the direct continuation of the best traditions of Russian violin school" (" Kultura", Moscow, June 2002).
Born into a family of eminent musicians,Tatiana was constantly surrounded by music. From the age of 3 she was already playing piano, only to discover her voice on the violin two years later. At this age she also displayed a precocious interest in composing her own music.
The key moment for her came when she was nine years old. She played her debut with the National Orchestra of Moldova, under the baton of her father, conductor Alexandru Samoila, and was so moved by that experience that she decided to dedicate herself to the violin.
Tatiana Samouil was selected by the Russian “New Names Program” at the age of fourteen and commenced an active touring at the most prestigious concert halls of Russia and Europe, performing also in the Vatican Residence for the Pope John Paul II, at the UN Headquarters in Geneva and for UNESCO in Paris.
She moved to Moscow as a young girl in order to study with the legendary Maya Glezarova at the prestigious Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory . There, she obtained her Soloist’s Diploma “with extraordinary mention”. She then moved to Belgium to continue her studies with the great Igor Oistrakh at Brussels Royal Conservatory.
Under his guidance, and in a period of only three years, Tatiana Samouil won prizes at seven of the most prestigious international violin competitions, most notably the Tchaikovsky International Competition in Moscow (2002), the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels (2001), the Michael Hill International Competition in New Zealand (2001) and the International Jean Sibelius Violin Competition in Helsinki (2000).
Prensently, she is performing around the world, despite her near fatal accident in 2014. It left her hospitalized for a long period , unsure of whether she would be able to walk or play the violin again. Her recovery is nothing short of miraculous. Tatiana's comeback concert happened to be in no less then " Salle Gaveau" in Paris , live, recorded on French TV.
This season alone, she will be performing in the Berlin Konzerthaus, the Seoul Art Center and Flagey Concert Hall in Brussels , along with performances in New-York , Amsterdam , Lisbon and Paris .
Tatiana has enjoyed performing with the conductors such as Antonio Pappano, Christian Arming, Kazushi Ono, Dmitry Liss, Gilbert Varga , Jean Jacques Kantorow and many others .
