Verve, passion and 'full-blooded commitment' (Gramophone) 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).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic no concerts will take place until further notice.
But this unfamiliar situation also opens up new and creative possibilities. See here the latest video of Lea Birringer with Astor Piazzolla's Libertango in a version for 4 violins.
New (online) concert series
You can also listen to Lea Birringer's live stream concert. Together with her sister Esther Birringer at the piano, she opened the new online concert series 'Illtonic - Soli pour vous'. The concert was broadcast live on Facebook and YouTube. The programme included Maurice Ravel's concert rhapsody Tzigane and the Romance from Dmitri Shostakovich's Gadfly Suite.
On her new solo album Di tanti palpiti violinist Lea Birringer launches a fireworks display
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 just released Lea Birringer's solo debut album Di tanti palpiti, which features virtuoso bravura pieces.
