Known for her “exceptional assurance, musicality, and intensity” (La Presse), Andréa Tyniec pursues a career both as a soloist and a collaborator in multidisciplinary productions integrating theater, dance, cinema, and the visual arts.
She has performed as a soloist with, notably, the Orchestre Métropolitain, the Niagara Symphony, the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra (Germany), I Virtuosi Italiani (Italy), and the Orchestre de chambre Akbank. She regularly plays as a soloist for the ECM+ under the direction of Véronique Lacroix and, with the ensemble, has recorded Projet d’opéra by André Ristic on the ATMA label, and premiered Object Permanence by Alec Hall, a piece which then toured Canada as part of the ECM+’s Generation2014 project. Her recording of Six sonates pour violon seul by Eugène Ysaÿe, released in 2015, was called “simply sensational” by The WholeNote.
Andréa currently plays the 1689 Baumgartner Stradivarius, on loan from the Canada Council for the Arts’ Musical Instrument Bank.
