Congratulations to Assistant Professor Nicholas DiEugenio, violin, and Lecturer Mimi Solomon, piano, on their album Unraveling Beethoven being honored as Best of Show of the Gold Medal Winners by Global Music Awards!
“Best of Show honors go to Nicholas DiEugenio and Mimi Solomon, Unraveling Beethoven, album, compositions/composers, and duo. In this brilliant album, the duo DiEugenio (violin) and Solomon (piano) commissioned composers Allen Anderson, David Garner, Robert Honstein, Jesse Jones, and Tonia Ko to pull on loose threads of Beethoven’s violin sonatas and reweave them into new original classical compositions. The results display a range, from a mixture of direct references to Beethoven’s work to more oblique reactions to the violin sonatas. These artists honor listeners by sending their new pieces out into the world and by helping write a new chapter in our ongoing relationship with Beethoven’s music.” -Global Music Awards
