ASL 2013: Elinor Frey (Mellos / Tozer, & Frey)

Fascinated with the cello’s origins and the creative process of new music, Elinor Frey plays both period and modern instruments. Elinor’s honors include grants from SSHRC and the Canada Council for the Arts, and the US-Italy Fulbright Fellowship facilitating her research on Italian modern and baroque unaccompanied cello music. Her debut album, Dialoghi, is titled for the solo piece written for her by Steven Stucky and her second album, La voce del violoncello, will be released in 2013 on the Belgian label Passacaille. Elinor’s quartet, Pallade Musica, was the grand prize winner of the 2012 EMA Baroque Performance Competition. Elinor holds degrees from McGill University, Mannes, and the Juilliard School.
