Irmina Trynkos has just been proclaimed as “one of the most exciting new soloists to have appeared recently” (Classical Lost and Found) and “clearly one to watch” (The WholeNote)
Her debut CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra became NAXOS’ best-seller and reached the Top 20 Specialist Classical Charts. Luxembourg’s Pizzicato awarded Irmina with its coveted Supersonic Award, calling her interpretation “engaging and eloquent”. As Fanfare reveals, “musical intelligence and emotional depth are hallmarks of Trynkos” and it is her curiosity that was the leading force behind the Waghalter Project and subsequently her debut CD with all of Ignatz Waghalter’s premiere violin works.
Since her breakthrough performance conducted by Neeme Järvi, Irmina’s highlights include performances at the Berliner Philharmonie, Slovak Philharmonic, Cadogan Hall, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Shanghai Concert Hall and most recently the debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam which received no less than 6 standing ovations.
Her recordings are broadcasted on international radios including BBC3, Radio 4 Netherlands, Kol Ha Musica, Polish Radio 2, Concertzender, KulturRadio, Radio New Zealand and more.
“Irmina is a very natural performer, always giving her outmost and impressing the audience with her interpretation, warmth and sensitivity. She loves being on the stage, which comes through in her playing and communication with the listeners” says acclaimed violinist Lydia Mordkovitch. Irmina’s Greek-Polish background, leaving bravely home at an early age and her troubled youth have made her an unrivalled communicator and champion of classical music to the young and to new audiences.
Irmina is a strong advocate of reviving unknown violin compositions and premiering new works including pieces by Giorgi Latsabidze, Stephen Mark Barchan and Nimrod Borenstein, whose “Duo Concertante” sonata is dedicated to Irmina and will be included on her next CD recording. Irmina plays on Jakob Stainer Violin from 1670.
