Ralph Evans, violinist, prizewinner in the 1982 International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, concertized as soloist throughout Europe and North America before succeeding Leonard Sorkin as first violinist of the Fine Arts Quartet. Evans has recorded over 75 solo and chamber works to date. These include the two Bartók Sonatas for violin and piano, whose performance the New York Times enthusiastically recommended for its “searching insight and idiomatic flair,” and three virtuoso violin pieces by Lukas Foss with the composer at the piano.

Evans received a doctorate from Yale University, where he also graduated cum laude with a specialization in music, mathematics, and premed. While a Fulbright scholar in London, he studied with Szymon Goldberg and Nathan Milstein, and soon won the top prize in a number of major American competitions, including the Concert Artists Guild Competition in New York, and the National Federation of Music Clubs National Young Artist Competition. His award winning composition “Nocturne” has been performed on American Public Television and his String Quartet No 1, released on Naxos 8.559354, has been warmly greeted in the press (“rich and inventive” – Toronto Star; “whimsical and clever, engaging and amusing” – All Music Guide; “vigorous and tuneful” – Montreal Gazette; “seductive, modern sonorities” – France Ouest; “a small masterpiece” – Gli Amici della Musica).
