Notes & Reviews:

Born only two years earlier than Webern and successful as a conductor in Berlin, Ignatz Waghalter built on the tradition of Schumann and Brahms rather than seeking revolutionary innovation. The inspiring melodic and rhythmic invention of his 1911 Violin Concerto led a contemporary reviewer to recommend that 'violinists should take it up without hesitation!', while the earlier Violin Sonata won the coveted Mendelssohn Prize in 1902. A milestone in violinist Irmina Trynkos' 'Waghalter Project' (www.waghalterproject.com), this release brings to light one of the most unjustly forgotten musicians of interwar Europe. Since her breakthrough performance conducted by Neeme Järvi at the Oistrakh Festival in 2008, the Greek-Polish violinist Irmina Trynkos has been establishing herself on the worldwide stage as an artist of exceptional talent. Her first appearance with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was received with audience acclaim and high critical praise.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Violinist Trynkos plays with a large tone and also sounds right in more intimate passages. Pianist Latsabidze works well as accompanist and soloist, and Walker leads good orchestral support.
