CSU alumnus and violin lecturer, Boris Abramov, has partnered with internationally acclaimed cellist, Carmine Miranda, to produce a rare collection of
Beethoven and Mozart duets. The album, which has received two silver medals at the Global Music Awards, will be released on Nov. 10 by Navona Records.
“It is my debut record. This will be my introduction to the recording community, and that will be very special,” said Abramov. “At the same time, it was do
ne with Carmine – a close friend whom I respect very much.”
The album features a collection of duets for cello and violin that have never been done before. The artists decided to leave the album unedited to give it the feeling of a live performance, which Abramov describes as an “honest recording.”
Originally attracted to CSU’s Schwob School of Music to train under Sergiu Schwartz, Abramov holds three degrees from the university: a bachelor’s degree in music performance, artist’s diploma and a master’s degree. Abramov has since received several awards and prizes, including the National Winner of the 2008 Music Teachers National Association Competition for strings and a special prize at the 2009 Pablo de Sarasate International Competition in Pamplona, Spain.
