The Paganini of the Domra!


An amazing classical instrumentalist!

Tamara Volskaya's musicianship and command of her instrument are truly miraculous! Her virtuosity, sensitivity, and communication of emotion, in violin favorites by Sarasate, Wieniawski, Kreisler, Saint-Saens and others, defy the greatest violinists.

"She's about the only string player who can challenge the supremacy of Heifetz and Kreisler in their own repertoire...she really does deserve the epithet Paganini of the Domra"
