“Violinist Miranda Cuckson reaffirms her standing as one of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music.”  (Downbeat Magazine)

Called “top-notch in all respects” (Sequenza 21) and “an artist to be reckoned with” (Gramophone), violinist/violist Miranda Cuckson is acclaimed by audiences for her performances of a wide range of repertoire. In demand both as a soloist and chamber musician, she appears in major concert halls and festivals, as well as at universities, galleries and informal spaces. She made her recent Carnegie Hall concerto debut in Piston’s concerto with the American Symphony Orchestra and Leon Botstein. She has in recent years been one of the most sought-after performers of contemporary music, and is enthusiastic about the role of the performer-interpreter in the musical creative process, and about supporting the culture of America and other countries. She has released nine lauded solo CDs, including music by Hersch, Shapey, Xenakis, Haas, Martino and concertos by Korngold and Ponce. Her recording of Luigi Nono’s “La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura” for violin and electronics was named a Best Classical Recording of 2012 by the New York Times.   Full bio  Short bio
