“The beauty of the Weinberg violin concerto was magnified by the excellent performance. The soloist David Radzynski, the concertmaster of the orchestra, combined a sparkly sound, elegant punctuation, restraint and intense emotional expression. The fast movements were full of energy, the inner movements — suspense and lyricism” Amir Mendel, Haaretz

BIOGRAPHY

David Radzynski, concertmaster of the Israel Philharmonic, is one of the youngest violinists to lead a major world orchestra today. He works extensively both with the orchestra's current artistic director Zubin Mehta, and with the newly appointed future artistic director Lahav Shani. David has led the orchestra on tours throughout Europe, China, Singapore, South America, the United States, and in Mehta's hometown Mumbai, India. He has also performed as guest concertmaster with the Houston Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestras. 

 

As concertmaster of the IPO, David enjoys collaborating regularly with major conductors and soloists, both in orchestral, solo, and chamber music settings. An avid chamber musician, he has performed with Emanuel Ax, Pinchas Zukerman, Lahav Shani and Martha Argerich, among others.

 

As a soloist David has most recently played with the Israel Philharmonic and Manfred Honeck performing the Weinberg Violin Concerto. He also performed with Zubin Mehta in Musikverein Hall where he played the Haydn Sinfonia Concertante with his colleagues of the IPO, and in Poland with the Łódź Philharmonic performing the Brahms Double Concerto with principal cellist of the Polish National Philharmonic. David has also played as soloist with the Columbus Symphony and the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra of Poznan where he premiered the double concerto composed by his father Jan Radzynski. He also gives recitals regularly throughout the world.  

 

David holds a Bachelors degree from Indiana University, a Masters degree from Yale, and Artist Certificate from the International Center for Music at Park University.

''His approach to performance is straightforward and focused, but the music remains deeply alive with emotions'' Lyn Green, Columbus Dispach

“Radzynski, embodies a natural humility, one that creates an instant admiration. His presence on stage is pleasant and captivating, and his playing emotional and introverted in the slow movements and turbulent as needed in the others”

Omer Shomrony, Opus Magazine
