Andréa Tyniec
1689 Baumgartner Stradivari violin

Andréa Tyniec, violin, “plays with exceptional musicality and intensity” (La Presse) has moved audiences all over the world. The first prize winner of Italy’s Andrea Postacchini International Violin Competition 2008, she performed her Debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in 2009. Ms. Tyniec has performed as a soloist with Canadian and international orchestras such as l’Orchestre Métropolitain de Montréal with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Münchener Kammerorchester (Germany), and the Akbank Chamber Orchestra (Istanbul).

Andréa fostered an early passion for contemporary works, which has led to premiering numerous compositions from Canadian composers. With conductor Véronique Lacroix and the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal, she premiered and recorded André Ristic’s Violin Concerto (ATMA), and premiered Alec Hall’s violin Concerto. She recently released Six Sonatas for Solo Violin Op.27 by Eugène Ysaÿe (Really Records REA-CD-5898D).

Aaron Schwebel

Violinist Aaron Schwebel has performed throughout the world as a chamber and orchestral musician. His charismatic musical personality and versatility as a performer have led him to pursue a variety of roles and collaborations, with a particular love for chamber music.

He has performed as guest concertmaster with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and Orchestra London.

Aaron did his studies at Indiana and McGill University where he was awarded the Schulich School of Music Golden Violin Award.

He is currently based in Toronto.
