Biography

The Marie-Josée Kravis Creative Partner for the 2018–19 season, violist Nadia Sirota enjoys a varied career spanning solo performances, chamber music, curation, and broadcasting. In all branches of her artistic life she aims to open classical music up to a wider audience. Ms. Sirota’s singular sound and expressive execution have served as muse to dozens of composers, including Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner, Missy Mazzoli, Daníel Bjarnason, Judd Greenstein, Marcos Balter, and David Lang. She won a 2015 Peabody Award, broadcasting’s highest honor, for her podcast Meet the Composer, which deftly profiled some of the most interesting musical thinkers living today.

This season, Ms. Sirota teams up with the New York Philharmonic as its first-ever Creative Partner, a position created for her. In this role she will host nine contemporary music concerts over two new series: Nightcap, six late-night, cabaret-style concerts curated by living composers, and Sound ON, three afternoon chamber concerts curated by Ms. Sirota and featuring Musicians from the Philharmonic.

As a soloist, Nadia Sirota has appeared with acclaimed orchestras around the world, including the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, Colorado Symphony, National Arts Centre Orchestra, Spanish National Orchestra, and Orchestre National d’Île-de-France. To date, she has released four albums of commissioned music, most recently Tessellatum, Donnacha Dennehy’s groundbreaking work for viola and microtonal viola da gamba consort, featuring Liam Byrne. Ms. Sirota has also lent her sound to recording and concert projects by such artists as The National, David Bowie, and Björk.

Ms. Sirota is a member of the acclaimed chamber sextet yMusic. Its virtuosic execution and unique configuration have attracted high profile collaborators, including Paul Simon, Ben Folds, Ryan Lott, and Anohni, and inspired an expanding repertoire of original works by prominent composers, including Andrew Norman, Caroline Shaw, and Chris Thile.

In 2013 Nadia Sirota won Southern Methodist University’s Meadows Prize, awarded to pioneering artists and scholars with an emerging international profile. She received her undergraduate and master’s degrees from The Juilliard School, where she studied with Heidi Castleman, Misha Amory, and Hsin-Yun Huang.
