Tessa Lark

Tessa Lark

American violinist Tessa Lark is one of the most captivating artistic voices of our time. A budding superstar in the classical realm, she is also a highly acclaimed fiddler in the tradition of her native state of Kentucky.

Since making her concerto début with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra at sixteen, Lark has appeared with dozens of orchestras, at festivals, and recital venues including Carnegie Hall, Ravinia, San Francisco Performances, Marlboro Music Festival, Lincoln Center’s Great Performers Series, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, and Australia’s Musica Viva Festival.

Lark has collaborated with such renowned artists as Mitsuko Uchida, Itzhak Perlman, Miriam Fried, Donald Weilerstein, Pamela Frank, Kim Kashkashian, Peter Wiley, and Ralph Kirshbaum.

Keeping in touch with her Kentucky roots, Lark performs and programmes bluegrass and Appalachian music regularly, and she collaborated with fiddler Mark O'Connor on his album MOC4, released in June 2014. She premièred her own Appalachian Fantasy as part of her Distinctive Débuts recital at Carnegie Hall, where she also gave the world prèmiere of Michael Torke’s Spoon Bread, written specifically for her stylistic capabilities.

Lark plays a c.1600 G.P. Maggini violin on loan from an anonymous donor through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.
