Annette-Barbara Vogel

In 2010, Gramophone Magazine lauded “Vogel’s perfect intonation” and Classical CD Review wrote: “Vogel is about the most ideal exponent a composer could hope for”. Considered one of the finest German violinists of her generation, she is renowned for “… authoritative and highly sensitive performances” (Music Web International),” and a “formidable technique, stunning musicality, and stage presence that transmits to orchestra and audience alike.” (Brahms Concerto, Wuppertaler Zeitung). Vogel's exceptional talent and musicianship is recognized by numerous prestigious solo prizes and scholarships: first prize in the Folkwang Competition (Essen), the Bund der Industrie Competition (Frankfurt), and the Deutscher Musikwettbewerb in Bonn. She also won a Gold Medal in the International Competition Caltanissetta in Italy, was a finalist in the International Carl Maria von Weber Competition in Munich, and a recipient of the Starling Scholarship. Vogel was one of the musicians chosen to perform in a Gala concert honoring Dorothy Delay's seventy-fifth birthday, where she played Brahms Concerto with Keith Lockhart. She has shared concert stages with notable artists C. Altenburger, L. Vogt, J. Levine, D. Sitkovetsky, S. Rivers, M. Kliegel, Vladimir Mendelssohn, E. Moser, P. Zazofsky and J. Lagerspetz. Vogel has performed at the international festivals Aspen, Gstaad, Graz, Seoul, Schleswig-Holstein, Kuhmo, Ravinia, and Nova Scotia, and musically collaborated with P. Amoyal, R. Gothoni, B. Greenhouse, A. Grumiaux, Lord Y. Menuhin, V. Pikaisen and the Tokyo String Quartet.

Vogel has recorded for Avie Records, Bluegriffin Recordings, Cybele Records, Eroica Classical Records, and Harmonia Mundi Germany.
Annette-Barbara Vogel is founder and Artistic Director of MAGISTERRA SOLOISTS, an ensemble which was founded in 2015. For information on this not-for-profit group please visit:

Uriel Tsachor

An internationally active soloist and chamber musician, Uriel Tsachor is a Steinway artist. A dedicated pedagogue, he teaches a large and internationally diverse studio at the University of Iowa, School of Music.

«A musician who pursues piano playing as a vehicle for musical poetry,» (SüddeutscheZeitung, Munich) Uriel Tsachor has appeared in recitals in New York, Chicago, Tel-Aviv, Brussels, Vienna, Paris, London, Milan and other cities around the world, winning acclaim from critics and audiences alike for his powerful poetic expressiveness and compelling sensitivity.

Tsachor was invited by Maestro Zubin Mehta to perform with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and has played with prestigious European orchestras as well as with all the major orchestras in Israel. Tsachor has performed numerous times over twenty-five different concerti.

Swiss Radio International selected one of Tsachor’s Schumann recordings for its Exceptional Production award, sending it to over 800 radio stations worldwide. International Piano magazine in London included the disc in an article discussing the “milestones in the recorded history of the work” citing the importance of the recording along those of Rudolf Serkin, Arthur Schnabel, Artur Rubinstein and other significant pianists. The article described Tsachor as a “ Master Pianist.”

In another recent review of his playing the Diapason magazine in Paris described Tsachor as “a pianist of great sensitivity and perfect musicianship.”

Uriel Tsachor's chamber music discs include three cello and piano sonatas by Barber, Schnittke and Britten on the EMS label and violin and piano sonatas by Schumann, Reger and Strauss for the London based label OLYMPIA, and the complete violin-piano sonatas by Brahms released on the CALLIOPE label, all performed with violinist Andrew Hardy. The duo has also recorded for the Musique en Wallonie label a 4-CD set of the eight sonatas by various composers dedicated to Ysaÿe, the great Belgian violinist.
This season Tsachor is scheduled to perform in Brussels, Tel Aviv, and Hong Kong and on major University campuses in the United States and Canada.
