Krzysztof Ruciñski

Violin is my life and I love playing a lot. I've been playing it for twelve years now. I have been accepted to the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY beginning fall 2008 to study with Prof. Oleh Krysa under a full scholarship provided by Eastman and FAYM.

I love taking part in violin competitions. I consider them to be a very useful tool in my development as they give me an opportunity to prepare a new programme and let me play in front of distinguished teachers and musicians. So far I have participated in 26 competitions. I am a prize-winner of Great Poland Performance Competition in Poznan, All-Poland Young Paganini Violin Competition in Legnica, International Violin Competition in honour of G. P. Telemann in Poznan and International Violin Competition in honour of H. W. Ernst and K. Szymanowski in Wroclaw, Poland.

I played many concerts in Poland and abroad. In December 2007 I made my US Debut with recitals and orchestra appearances in Arizona and Nevada to initiate the FOUNDATION TO ASSIST YOUNG MUSICIANS ("FAYM" - )

I love playing new challenging pieces. I dream of playing all of them, so I’ll seem to be busy for the next hundred years or more;-).

I’m fascinated by the wonderful playing of the Great Violinists from the beginning and mid of the of twentieth century, especially from the "Russian School". I love the way they performed. I admire their very individual styles and a deep respect for music and listeners. The very favourite violinists of mine are Jasha Heifetz and David Oistrakh. I’m so sorry I was born too late to hear them and the other Great Masters of Violin live.
