Kinga Augustyn

Jonathan Leshnoff


The SSO’s March concert will begin with Pomp and Circumstance March No. 4 by Sir Edward Elgar.

Towson composer, Jonathan Leshnoff, is truly making a name for himself amongst orchestras and chamber musicians world-wide! He is in demand as a composer! The SSO will perform his evocative “Four Dances” to end the first half of the concert.

For the concert’s second half, the SSO will begin with a popular and brilliant Slavonic Dance by Antonin Dvorak. Maestro Bair has programmed the always popular Violin Concerto by Tchaikovsky! Our soloist will be Polish-American violinist and recording artist, Kinga Augustyn! Writing a review for Fanfare Magazine (March/April 2018), Jerry Dubins wrote of Augustyn’s recording of the Bruch Violin Concerto: I was also struck by how expressively she phrases without resorting to heavy vibrato or persistent portamento. In fact, her use of portamento is so infrequent and so poignantly timed on the few occasions when she does use it, that the effect is intensely intimate, as if she is imparting a personal secret. Most of what Augustyn accomplishes on the expressive, emotional level is done with the bow. The fingers find the notes, but it’s the bow that makes them speak and sing, and Augustyn’s bowing is exemplary. When other players cut short the held note values, especially on double-stops, to set up for the next double-stop or chord, or in anticipation of a string crossing or distant shift, Augustyn gives the note values their full due...
