'Lea Birringer’s tonal radiance and sparkling articulation captivate the senses'
Verve, passion and 'full-blooded commitment' (Gramophone) are the characteristics which the German violinist Lea Birringer is most often associated with. Regarded as 'one of the most talented violinists of her generation' (Pizzicato), she couples plenty of attention to detail with high conceptual standards.
The International Classical Music Awards (ICMA) announced the nominations for their Awards 2023.
Lea Birringer is among the nominees with her album of violin concertos by Mendelssohn and Christian Sinding, joining the best musicians and recordings of this year.
'Obviously, this enthusiastic young woman loves to cross well-worn boundaries.' This is what the German music magazine FonoForum says about the curious violinist, who fascinates with her
unusual choice of programs.
With her album 'Transformation', on which she combines well-known works by Bach and Ysaye with unknown pieces by Auerbach, von Knorr and Reger, she has now been nominated multiple times for the German classical music award 'Opus Klassik' in the category 'Solo Recording' among others.
In the category 'Innovative Concert of the Year', she has been nominated for her extraordinary 'Transformation' recitals featuring 'an ingenious programme celebrating the seemingly inescapable creative impact of Bach’s solo violin music.' (The Strad)
Lea Birringer’s first concerto recording is a fascinating combination of the well known with a delightful concerto that does not deserve the obscurity to which it has been consigned.
