Listen to Andréa play 'Evta' by Ana Sokolović
Andréa's latest release for ATMA Classique, a recording entirely dedicated to the Canadian composer Ana Sokolović
Praise for 'Evta' the night of its premiere, a few months before the recording:
"For ECM+, conducted by artistic director Véronique Lacroix on November 6 at Vancouver’s Roundhouse Community Centre, it was the world premiere of a stunning new concerto for violin and chamber ensemble by Montreal composer Ana Sokolović, EVTA, written for the brilliant young violin soloist Andréa Tyniec. Sokolović’s concerto is structured in seven contiguous movements, each inspired by colours of the chakras. The title, EVTA, means “seven” in the language of the Serbian Roma, and accordingly, the work is strongly influenced by the style of gypsy violin playing in the Balkans. Tyniec's solo violin was an astounding traveller through the seven movements, flashing virtuosity in so many ways, one lost count. The thread of this exciting composition never lost clarity as it swept through its intricate and surprising courses." -The WholeNote
"Canadian violinist Andréa Tyniec has released a simply stunning recording of the Six Sonatas for Solo Violin Op.27 by Eugène Ysaÿe. (...)
Suffice it so say that Tyniec’s faultless technique, outstanding musicianship and a crystal-clear recorded sound make this marvellous set one to revisit and to treasure."

"André Ristic proposes a "Projet d'Opéra" without voice, but where Andréa Tyniec's violin creates a forest of shimmering colours (...)"
"the violin (is) closely integrated into the texture and spawning distinct musical areas as the piece proceeds. Some of these involve a sampler, and the piece also involves intriguing give-and-take between a pair of percussionists and the soloist Andréa Tyniec".
