KINGA AUGUSTYN - is a Polish-born and New York City-based versatile classical concert violinist and
recording artist gaining worldwide recognition through her performances as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber musician.
She has been described as “an adventurous performer valuable to New York’s scene” (NY Concert Review),
“stylish and vibrant…playing with verve and superb control” (The Strad Magazine), and “beyond amazing, one hell of a violinist!”
(The Fanfare Magazine). Her repertoire ranges from early baroque, which she sometimes performs on a baroque violin,
to modern, oftentimes written especially for her. She is known for unique programming of unaccompanied solo violin recitals.
