• Duo del Gesú

    Founded in 2010 by the French violinist Arnaud Kaminski and the Polish violist Krzysztof Tymendorf, the group Duo del Gesú won the first prize at the 25th Young Musician International Competition “Città di Barletta”. This success in Italy sparked off the international career of the group including performances all over the world, invitations to international festivals, congresses, and seminars, teaching in music workshops, and jury participation at music competitions. The artists—laureates of numerous international competitions, scholarships and prizes—mastered their skills in Paris, Vienna, Gdańsk and Göteborg, which encompassed study with such chamber music luminaries as Eberhard Feltz, and the quartets, Apollon Musagète Quartett and Quatuor Ebène. Eclectic and ever hungry for new ideas, they have worked with, amongst others, Christoph Hartmann (Berliner Philharmoniker), Bertrand Braillard (Orchestre national dÎle-de- France), Giuseppe Nova, Janusz Wawrowski, Joanna Woś, Tytus Wojnowicz, Mateusz Smoczyński, Antoine de Grolée, Maciej Gański, Bartosz Koziak, and NeoQuartet, as well as with the icon of Polish electronic music Władysław “Gudonis” Komendarek.
    Duo del Gesù attach particular importance to undiscovered classical-period works. This period is characterized by an untapped legacy of compositions combining the violin with the viola by such composers as Antonio Bartolomeo Bruni, Louis-Charles Ragué, Ignaz Pleyel and the “Paganini of the viola” Alessandro Rolla. In addition, the group performs contemporary and the very latest music including premieres of works dedicated to it by Polish and foreign composers, most notably, Thomas Emmanuel Cornelius, Maximilian Kreuz, Stephan Kühne, Tadeusz Dixa, Ewa Miriam Saczko, Kamil Cieślik, Gunnar Karel Màsson.
    From 2012 Duo del Gesù serve as the artistic directors of the Gdańsk Euro Chamber Music Festival, which has been awarded the prestigious 2017-2020 EFFE (Europe for Festivals, Festivals for Europe) label. The group also conceived of the Baltic Music Workshops [Nadbałtyckie Warsztaty Muzyczne] and the Baltic Coast String Duets Competition [Nadbałtycki Konkurs  Duetów Smyczkowych], a unique event in Europe for string duets whose aim is to promote young talent as well as the dissemination of duet repertoire.
