IRSKA, 1995.

David Tobin (21) is currently undertaking his bachelor degree in Germany at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz, Cologne, with Prof. Michael Vaiman. His solo debut with orchestra came at the age of 10, and at 11 he performed as a soloist in the National Concert Hall of Ireland’s (NCH) Auditorium for the first time. He has collaborated with many orchestras at home and abroad, including performances with the Sinfonieorchester Aachen, where he played “the virtuosic Carmen Fantasy, receiving a rapturous applause”, and the Salut d’Amour which showed “evidence of love for and on the violin” (Aachener Zeitung). He performed Bruch with the New York Concerti Sinfonietta at Carnegie Hall last year, where “he played with impeccable intonation and abundant virtuosity” (Epoch Times). He has performed concertos by Sibelius, Bruch, Vivaldi and Bach with orchestras such as the Dublin Orchestral Players, DIT Symphony Orchestra and Young European Strings Chamber Orchestra in venues including the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, Budapest, Hungary and the NCH. David is the most successful string player ever at the Feis Ceoil, Ireland’s premier national competition, and has had success in international competitions as well, winning prizes in Estonia, France, Romania and Ukraine. Bursaries won include the RTÉ Lyric FM Award (Feis Ceoil), Gold Award (ABRSM), the Young Musician Award (NCH) and the Alan Gillespie Ulster Bank Award (Clandeboye Festival, N.Ireland), after a “slinkily idiomatic performance of Waxman’s dashing Carmen Fantasy which rightly drew shouts of approval” (Belfast Telegraph). Leader of the National Youth Orchestra of Ireland from 2011-2013, he also has led the YES Chamber Orchestra, the DIT Symphony Orchestra and the Irish National Youth Ballet Orchestra. As a soloist, David has appeared in Italy, Spain, Hungary, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Ukraine, the UK and the USA, as well as on Irish national radio and television. He has also given solo recitals at various music festivals in Ireland as well as many successful sold-out evening recitals in the NCH. He has also performed chamber music with musicians such as Barry Douglas, Tim Vogler and Kian Soltani. Upcoming engagements include a solo recital and a concerto performance in the NCH as well as a return to Carnegie Hall in New York.
