The award-winning New York City-based concert violinist, Kinga Augustyn, has been lauded by critics. She has performed as soloist with orchestras in the United States, Europe and Asia. Among them are the Deutsches Kammerorchester Berlin, the Wrocław Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum, the Magdeburg and Wrocław Philharmonic orchestras, and the Acadiana and Queens Symphony orchestras.
Following her acclaimed album of Polish Violin Music (Naxos 9.70192), she continues to research composers of her native Poland. Fascinated by the music of Romuald Twardowski, she originated the idea of recording all his works for violin and orchestra and obtained partial funding for the project. Augustyn’s other albums include Mendelssohn and Bruch Violin Concertos with the Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra and Jakub Klecker and Telemann Fantasias (Centaur Records).
She has won international awards, including First Prize at the Alexander & Buono International String Competition, the Artist International Presentations, and the J.S. Bach String Competition (Poland). Kinga Augustyn studied at The Juilliard School, and at Stony Brook University.
