About the Artist

First things first: it’s pronounced “Koh-pah-CHEEN-skah-yah,” but you can feel free to just call her “PatKop.” This wild-child of the violin has exploded onto the international scene in recent years with an untamable energy and a far-reaching approach to repertoire that runs from baroque and classical to commissions and reimagined modern masterpieces. For her PUC debut, she explores music rooted in her Moldovan-Austrian-Swiss heritage, from Enescu’s folksy Sonata No. 3 to the Hungarian flavors of Ravel’s “Tzigane.”
