Irmina Trynkos has been hailed by BBC Music Magazine as "an intense and charismatic new star" and "a phenomenal talent". Gramophone calls her simply "excellent" and The Strad praises her for being "an agile and expressive soloist".

Her recording with Maestro Vladimir Ashkenazy, conducting the Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra for Chandos Records earned her the 5* BBC Music Magazine "Concerto Choice" for her "intensity that recalls Isaac Stern's golden period".

Since her breakthrough performance conducted by Neeme Järvi, Irmina's highlights included performances at the Berliner Philharmonie, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Cadogan Hall, Toronto Centre for Arts, Shanghai Oriental Art Centre, Guangzhou Opera House and the debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, which received no less than 6 standing ovations.

Her debut CD with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra became a best-seller reaching the UK Top20 Specialist Classical Charts. She received Pizzicato's coveted Supersonic Award, for her "engaging and eloquent" interpretation. "Musical intelligence and emotional depth" (Fanfare) were the leading force behind the groundbreaking Waghalter Project and her premiere recordings of Ignatz Waghalter's violin works.

Irmina's recordings are internationally broadcasted on BBC3, Radio 4 Netherlands, Kol Ha Musica, Polish Radio 2, Concertzender, KulturRadio, Radio New Zealand and more. Jewish Renaissance Magazine made Irmina "Artist of the Year" and she performed live on BBC TV Xtra to 36 million viewers worldwide.

Irmina, of Greek-Polish origins and proudly British, champions classical music to young and new audiences. She advocates reviving unknown compositions and loves working with living composers. Irmina plays on Jakob Stainer Violin from 1670.
