The established Salzburg violinist Thomas Albertus Irnberger has already played with the greatest musical personalities and leading ensembles of our time such as the Royal Philhamonic Orchestra (violin concertos by Beethoven and Elgar). For his most recent recording featuring the Violin Concerto in D by Igor Stravinsky, the versatile virtuoso Irnberger can refer to the collaboration with another world-class orchestra: the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Doron Salomon. In addition to this work from 1931, the Concert Fantasy on Russian themes in B minor Op. 33 by Stravinsky's teacher Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov is included on this album. Together with Paul Ka?par, piano, with whom he shares a long artistic collaboration, Irnberger also interprets Stravinsky's Suite Italienne, the Duo concertant for violin and piano as well as the Danse russe (Petrushka) and Chanson russe (Mavra), borrowed from stage works.
Thomas Albertus Irnberger, who was born in Salzburg in 1985, is among Austria's leading violinists. At the age of 15 in the Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels he celebrated a debut that attracted widespread attention, and ever since is performing as a soloist and chamber musician in major concert halls in Europe, Israel and in Asia. His more than 40 recordings have regularly been the recipients of prizes and top rankings from the international press. His regular chamber music partners include such noted figures as Paul Badura-Skoda, Jörg Demus, Michael Korstick, David Geringas, Barbara Moser, Pavel Ka?par and Edoardo Torbianelli. Since 2008 Thomas Albertus Irnberger has devoted himself to research into and the rediscovery of "ostracised composers" and in Israel he played the first performance of the violin concerto by Hans Gál. www.thomas-albertus-irnberger.com The ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra is a top orchestra of world renown; it defines itself in the Vienna orchestral tradition.
