"...Irmina Trynkos, is a violinist of great talent and even greater promise. It’s obvious from her playing that she cares passionately for Waghalter and has strong conviction in his work. Both the concerto and the sonata make technical demands on the player, which Trynkos addresses with confidence and enough technique in reserve to deliver readings that go beyond the notes on the page. Musical intelligence and emotional depth are hallmarks of Trynkos’s playing, and she’s capable of producing both the fire and the soothing balm that the best moments of Waghalter’s scores call for. Credit also goes to Alexander Walker for his committed leadership of the Royal Philharmonic in the orchestral works, and to pianist Giorgi Latsabidze for his sympathetic partnering of Trynkos in the violin and piano numbers...Trynkos’s CD is a must for all violin lovers and for those who wish to sample the work of this long neglected composer."
"...His concerto (1911) is an appealing lyrical piece, rather like an updated max Bruch... The Rhapsody (1906) owes a bit to Brahms in its layoutIt could pass for the effective slow movement from a larger composition. The way Trynkos weaves her decorative lines around its framework is captivating ... Violinist Trynkos plays with a large tone, but also sounds right in the mosre intimate passages. Pianist Latsabidze works well as accompanist and soloist, and Walker leads good orchestral support.."
