On 14th November, Irmina Trynkos and the English Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Alexander Walker will perform a selection of works from Ignatz Waghalter’s lost repertoire. The concert will feature the first performance of his Violin Concerto in A Major since 1911, and Rhapsodie for Violin and Orchestra, which will be the first performance since 1907, alongside works by Dvořák, Mozart, and Mendelssohn.
Although celebrated in his lifetime, Ignatz Waghalter’s works have been forgotten since his flight from Europe in the Nazi era, and the change in musical fashions, which followed the end of the Second World War. Violinist Irmina Trynkos, together with conductor Alexander Walker, pianist Giorgi Latsabidze, and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, has recently recorded Waghalter’s works for violin to, which is now available to buy here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Waghalter-Rhapsodie-Latsabidze-Philharmonic-Orchestra/dp/B00925T9Z6
