Irmina Trynkos, violin
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 of the season and straight away landed in the Top 20 Specialist Classical Charts. Luxembourg’s major music magazine Pizzicato awarded Irmina’s CD with its coveted Supersonic Award, calling her interpretation “engaging and eloquent”. The impact of this pioneering recording was in fact so major that it received personal praise by Naxos’ founder Klaus Heymann. 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. Thanks to her discovery of the genius artistic personality of IgnatzWaghalter, audiences around the world finally have the chance to get to know the once celebrated conductor, composer and his thriving music. Being Polish-German and of Jewish heritage made his life turbulent in the Europe of the 30s and 40s and led to his subsequent neglect. This extremely touching story accompanies his music’s revival in Irmina’s debut CD, including premiere recordings of all his violin works heard for the first time in 100 years.
Pianist and composer Pavel Timofeevskiy is quickly gaining a reputation as one of the most exciting and compelling artists of his generation. Born in Russia and educated in England, Pavel graduated with distinction with a Master of Arts from the Royal Academy of Music, London. Solo and chamber music recitals, as well as concerto performances with orchestras have brought him to nearly all major concert venues in UK; these include the prestigious Wigmore Hall, as well as the Royal Festival and the Queen Elizabeth Halls in London.He has performed on concert tours and has made television and radio appearances in Russia, France, Spain, Sweden, Greece, Cyprus, South Africa and India. Pavel is the recipient of several prestigious British music awards, scholarships and national competition prizes: these include the Musicians Benevolent Fund Award, the 2007 Myra Hess Award, and the Philharmonia Orchestra Martin Musical Scholarship for piano, as well as winning the BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the Year award for composition.
"Irmina Trynkos is a violinist of a great talent and even greater promise."
