Violinist Kinga Augustin was educated at the prestigious Julliard School in New York, the city where she now resides. Her ever-expanding discography on major labels such as Naxos includes Paganini’s Capricci which music critics consider “as convincing as Perlman’s or Midori’s recordings” and an “enduring landmark” (Classical Net). She defined “elegant and vibrant” (The Strad Magazine) and “beyond the incredible, a violinist from hell!” (The Fanfare Magazine), Kinga Augustyn is often praised for her performances.

Over time, his collaborations with important soloists have led him to give concerts in Europe and the United States.
