As a laureate of the prestigious Indianapolis Violin Competition 2018, Ioana Cristina has played Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 99 with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Leonard Slatkin.

Oct 2018 - ”Power and Brilliance”

William Dart reports in the New Zealand Herald about Cristina´s concert with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra: ”Goicea explored the full expanse of [Shostakovich´s First Violin Concerto´s] emotional terrain; her unwavering lyricism in the Nocturne and vibrant song in its dark Passacaglia contrasted with the scherzo´s barbed lightning and the knockabout ironies of its Big Top Burlesca. Her absolute assurance in Shostakovich´s extremely taxing cadenza was a preview, in many respects, for an encore to come - a lingeringly buoyant Bach Sarabande.” Read the article.
