About the artists:

 

Molly Carr
Yannick Rafalimana
Molly Carr received both her Bachelors and Masters Degrees from the Julliard School and is no stranger to music education; she holds a Viola Faculty position in both the Juilliard precollege program in New York City, as well as the Galamian School in Malaga, Spain. Praised for her “ravishing sound” (the STRAD) and “passionate talent and beautiful poise… all in one package” (AVS), Carr was a top Prize Winner in the 2008 Primrose International Viola Competition. As winner of the 2010 Juilliard Viola Concerto Competition, Ms. Carr made her New York solo debut with the Juilliard Orchestra under Xian Zhang, performing the Bartok Viola Concerto in Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall. She has won several other major honors, including first prize in the National Solo Competition of the American String Teacher’s Association. Born in Lille, France, Yannick Rafalimanana began his musical studies at the Conservatory of Lille under the tutelage of Alain Raes. He later graduated with first prizes in both Piano Performance, and Chamber Music and Collaborative Piano Performance, from the ‘Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris’. Rafalimanana received his Graduate Diploma from the New England Conservatory in Piano Performance and a Master of Music in Chamber Music under Vivian Weilerstein. Winning the first prize in the 2012 Tufts/New England Conservatory Soloist Competition, he made his US debut in Symphony Hall in Boston, playing Schumann Concerto with the Boston Pops Orchestra under the baton of Keith Lockhart. Rafalimanana has won numerous awards and prizes in several competitions, including the Borromeo Quartet Guest Artist Award, the Bruxelles J-Musiciens Competition, the Brest Piano Competition, and the International Ravel Academy’s Rotary-Lions Competition.
