Natasha Korsakova grew up surrounded by music: her father and grandfather were virtuoso Russian violinists (Andrei and Boris Korsakov), her mother a pianist, and even the neighbors in their Moscow apartment building could be heard practicing through the walls. Today, she carries on her family tradition as an acclaimed concert violinist who in the last month alone has performed in Germany, Italy and several states in the U.S. Korsakova is also fluent in five languages. While in Las Cruces to perform with the Las Cruces Symphony Orchestra, she talked with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about her family’s influence, the Brahms Violin Concerto that she will perform here, and more.
