Margarita Nuller playing The Water Lily by Edward MacDowell

November Artist Spotlight - Margarita Nuller

Edward MacDowell (1860-1908) was the world-famous American composer of the late Romantic period. His music is distinctly American, with beautiful, folk song-like melodies, and many pieces are evocative of rural New England life. MacDowell had a summer house in Peterborough, NH, which now is home to MacDowell’s Residency for artists. The piece I am playing is The Water Lily, which is part of the cycle “Woodland Sketches”.

Ms. Nuller graduated from the St. Petersburg Conservatory, Russia. Since her arrival in the United States in 1990, she has performed extensively as a soloist and chamber musician in the New York metropolitan area and in New England, as well as in Brazil, Russia, Spain, and Portugal. She has been a soloist with the Arkansas Symphony, Danbury Symphony (CT), Klassika Orchestra (St. Petersburg, Russia), Orchestra Temple Beth El (CT), and Chamber Orchestra of Puerto Rico. Ms. Nuller played her debut recital at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City as a winner of the Artist International Auditions.
