Biography: 

Since her Carnegie Recital Hall debut in 1985, Elizabeth Dolin has earned a solid reputation as one of Canada’s finest cellists, in demand as a recitalist throughout Canada and the United States, and has collaborated with such emminent conductors as Franz-Paul Decker, Charles Dutoit, Mario Bernardi, Yannick Nezet-Séguin and Simon Streatfield. She has appeared as soloist with most major Canadian orchestras. Referring to her Mendelssohn recording with Bernadene Blaha on the Analekta label, The Strad writes that she “performs these works with technical finesse and just the right level of delicacy that Mendelssohn demands. Highly recommended.”

A founding member of several highly regarded ensembles, including Les Cordes Romantiques, Duo Fouquet-Dolin and the Reiner Trio, she has collaborated with such artists as Martin Beaver, Bernadene Blaha, Steven Isserlis and Pinchas Zuckerman. Her regular appearances at Festival of the Sound, the Ottawa Chamber Music Festival, the Orford Festival, Chamber Music Kincardine and the Fredericton Chamber Music Festival, among others, have been enthusiastically received. Highlights of note include a tour of Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with l’Orchestre Metropolitain and a performance of Schumann’s   Concerto   for   Cello   with   the   Victoria Symphony.

Elizabeth Dolin’s large and varied discography includes works by Chopin, Coulthard, Debussy, Dolin, Franck, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Rachmaninoff and Vierne, for the Naxos, Analekta, ATMA, CBC-Musica Viva, Fonovox , Disques XX1, and Pélleas labels. Her recording of the Rachmaninoff and Debussy sonatas, as well as the complete works of Mendelssohn for cello and piano, both for Analekta, were nominated for Best Album of the Year by l’ADISQ in 2002 and 2004 and received rave reviews.

In addition to being an active member of Montreal’s chamber music scene, Ms. Dolin is Assistant Professor of Cello at the Schulich School of Music, McGill University, as well as Professor of Cello and Chamber Music at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.
