"Wonderful playing, supremely polished . . . stunning."
—Gramophone Magazine, Editor's Choice
Recipient of the 2020 Salon de Virtuosi Career Grant, and youngest ever to win the Windsor Festival International String Competition, Nathan has been a soloist with the Orchestre national d'Île-de-France, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Royal Northern Sinfonia, and the Aalborg, Berlin, Concepción, Evansville, Indianapolis, Medellín, and Pittsburgh orchestras, among others, performing around the world.
As a recitalist and chamber musician, Nathan has performed at ChamberFest Cleveland, Giardini La Mortella, the Heidelberger Frühling, the Krzyżowa Festival, the Moritzburg Festival, the Musical de l’Orne, the Perlman Chamber Workshop, and the Verbier Festival Academy. He has been a concert artist with Omega Ensemble since 2016.
Nathan’s 2020-21 season includes the release of his debut CD with Rohan De Silva, appearances with the Adelphi, Hull Philharmonic, and Charlotte Symphony orchestras, and the launch of Opus Illuminate, an online concert series dedicated to the works of composers from underrepresented communities.
Nathan studies with Itzhak Perlman and Li Lin at Juilliard. He performs on the “Ames, Totenberg” Antonio Stradivari violin, Cremona 1734, generously on long-term loan from Rare Violins In Consortium, Artists and Benefactors Collaborative. This instrument was stolen from its owner, Roman Totenberg, and was missing for decades before being recovered by the FBI. We welcome its voice among the others too long silenced.
