...are the characteristics which the German violinist Lea Birringer is most often associated with. Plenty of attention to detail coupled with high conceptual standards characterise the
violinist's playing, while she 'seemingly casually unleashes fireworks on the violin' (O-Ton).
For her album Transformation, Lea Birringer wanted to approach Johann Sebastian Bach and his musical heritage over the span of centuries and explore some of the great compositions that have been created with Bach as a guide and role model.
Alongside his third Partita, Lea has chosen works for solo violin by Max Reger, Lera Auerbach, Ernst-Lothar von Knorr and Eugène Ysaÿe, which span from the Baroque to the present day. The characteristics of Bach's dance movements are integrated in these works in their own unique way.
Her ‘playing carried by the highest precision’ (SWR2) is one of the many reasons why Lea Birringer has long been regarded as ‘one of the outstanding violinists of the young generation’ (NDR Kultur). Rubicon Classics has released Lea Birringer's solo debut album Di tanti palpiti, which features virtuoso bravura pieces.
