Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

I am not only able to perform solo but also with a cellist, violist or another violinist if needed. If the venue has the piano or a keyboard I am also willing to play both violin and the piano or perform with a pianist in a duo.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know at least week in prior so I can make a suitable adjustments.

How much time do you need to set up?

My set up time is quick, ususally between 15 and 30 minutes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

I am happy to provide you with my regular playlist or add anything you would like to hear on your event. I am very flexible in this aspect.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring my own arrangements, instrument, stand and alternatively other adjustments depending on an event type and client's wish.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

I am a very fast learner as well as classically trained so I can perform any song/piece or genre you would like me to perform. I am experienced not only in classical music but also in jazz, pop, rock, blues, Irish/Scottish folk music as well as Middle Eastern tunes.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

I am always adjusting my repertoire to client's wish so they can request anything they would like to hear on an event. I am passionate about all of the genres and it is always a pleasure for me to try something new. Clients are also keen on the way I perform so I am always getting a positive reviews afterwards.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I have performed outdoors (private garden, park), private houses (birthday or business parties), in churches (wedding receptions), concert halls (orchestral projects, chamber recitals, solo playing). Recent venues include Regent's Hall in London and a mansion in Horsley, England.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

As I am opened to all of the genres my inspiration comes from different sides and from different artists. I have always admired classical violinists who are not only technically fluent but open minded to different types of music like for example - Nigel Kennedy.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I have recently performed Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto for UK Beijing Arts Centre during Chinese New Years Eve Concert in cooperation with Beijing traditional dancers. I have also been on tour in China and Germany with professional orchestras in past.

Me and my partner had a pleasure to hire Izabela for a wedding proposal. She was very professional and her performance of romantic pieces for violin solo have made this evening an unforgettable experience for both of us! I highly recommend Izabela to everyone looking for a musician for their wedding proposal, anniversary or any other occasion.
