Starring in the inaugural concert of Vermont Virtuosi, Tatiana debuted a new trio for flute, viola and piano by Vermont composer David Gunn. With her passion for new music, she has worked closely with with Mr. Gunn for years, commissioning a piece for her string quartet TM2D and most currently a new piece for solo viola aptly named, “O Solo Violo.”
