Duffalo Cornelius

Cornelius Dufallo (composer/violinist) is a constant innovator at the forefront of the American contemporary music scene.  The New York Times calls him one of the “new faces of new music” and praises his “alluring” solo performances and “imaginative” compositions. A virtuosic and versatile violinist, Dufallo plays both acoustic and electric violin and moves seamlessly from classical to pop and jazz styles.  He often works with cutting-edge technology such as the K-BOW by famed instrument designer Keith McMillan.  According to Allan Kozinn in the New York Times, Dufallo’s performances on electric violin show “how much amplification can expand the instrument’s palette. Far from robbing the violin of its beauty, electronics add textural elements and gradations of timbre that the acoustic instrument cannot approximate.”
