Ignatz Waghalter’s Violin Concero in A Major, Opus 15, has been performed on October 27 in Warsaw’s historic Teatr Wielki at a Gala Concert celebrating the Grand Opening of the Core Exhibit at the Museum of the History of Polish Jewry. The event was attended by an audience of more than 1700 people from all over the world.
Founded by violinist Irmina Trynkos and developed in collaboration with acclaimed conductor Alexander Walker the Waghalter Project aims to popularise the music of Ignatz Waghalter.

“For me, the recovery of Waghalter’s music has made possible, in a profoundly personal sense, a deeper understanding of my grandfather. His music reveals a man of intense and fluctuating emotions. Despite all the difficulties that he encountered in his life, Waghalter’s view of the world was essentially optimistic, hopeful and idealistic.”
