Violin soloist Kinga Augustyn offers a demanding program of 20th and 21st Century works that push the boundaries of both instrument and player. Sparks fly when bow meets string in this extraordinary salon-style performance.
Kinga Augustyn is a Polish-born, New York City-based classical concert violinist and recording artist. She has been described as stylish and vibrant (The Strad Magazine), and beyond amazing, one hell of a violinist! (Fanfare Magazine).
