Krzysztof Zimowski / Jacquelyn Helin duo
Violinist Krzysztof Zimowski, and pianist, Jacquelyn Helin will perform duo works at Chatter Sunday this week. Zimowski, who will be familiar to Albuquerque audiences as the concertmaster of the New Mexico Philharmonic, is known for spirited and committed performances of Eastern-European and Russian repertoire, and with the sensitive accompaniment of Mrs. Helin at the piano, works of Prokofiev and Szymanowski will come to life in glorious detail.
Violinist Krzysztof Zimowski moved to the U.S. from Poland in the fall of 1986, where he helped to form the Helios String Quartet. In October of 1986, Zimowski began playing with the New Mexico Symphony Orchestra and was appointed Concertmaster and soloist in 1999. Mr. Zimowski has performed with the Phoenix Symphony, Santa Fe Opera Orchestra, Santa Fe Symphony and Santa Fe Pro Musica. Currently he is the concertmaster of the New Mexico Philharmonic and Opera Southwest Orchestra.
Steinway artist, pianist Jacquelyn Helin consistently wins acclaim for her vibrant and musical playing of a wide-ranging repertoire. Recent concerts have drawn standing ovations and rave reviews. Versatile and articulate, Helin enjoys communicating with audiences of all ages in a variety of settings. Helin has performed both in recital and with orchestras in the major musical capitals of Europe and the United States, including London, Paris, Nice, Zurich, New York, Washington, Chicago and San Francisco. Locally, she has performed chamber music with such groups as Santa Fe New Music, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, the Santa Fe Opera, Chatter, the Taos Chamber Music Group, and Ballet ProMusica.
This week the spoken word portion of the program will be presented by Erika T. Wurth, whose novel, “Crazyhorse’s Girlfriend,” has been accepted for publication by Curbside Splendor. A writer of both fiction and poetry, she teaches creative writing at Western Illinois University and has been a guest writer at the Institute of American Indian Arts.
