Music on Main presents
Andréa Tyniec

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 8:00pm
CBC, Studio 700 (700 Hamilton Street, Vancouver)

“… exceptional musicality and intensity”-La Presse

Opening its 11th season, Music on Main presents star-on-the-rise violinist, Andréa Tyniec, for the first in its 2016/17 concert series. Performing a compelling program—spanning the centuries from classical Baroque to cutting-edge contemporary—Tyniec will demonstrate her versatility and energy at CBC’s Studio 700 on Tuesday, October 18.

Based in Toronto, Tyniec has built a reputation for championing the work of the new wave of Canadian composers. She has premiered and recorded André Ristic’s violin concerto Projets d’Opéra, and performed Alec Hall’s violin concerto, both with the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal+. Her latest recording, Sonatas for Solo Violin by Eugène Ysaÿe was released in 2015. Tyniec will perform Sonata No. 2 as well as a new concerto by Ana Sokolovic, who has written it expressly for Tyniec. Rounding out the program will be a performance of Terri Hron’s Love Song for M. A. D. on which Tyniec was a co-collaborator.

Tyniec plays on a 1689 Baumgartner Stradivari violin, on loan as part of Canada Council for the Arts’ Instrument Bank program.

As a soloist, Tyniec has performed with the Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal, Calgary Symphony, Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal+, iVirtuosi Italiani (Italy), Münchener Kammerorchester (Germany), and Akbank Chamber Orchestra Istanbul (Turkey).
