Auf „Imaginary Room“ vergisst man jedes Geigen-Stereotyp und wird Zeuge von Bałdychs beeindruckender Virtuosität, Expressivität und Variabilität.

He discovered the violin at the age of 11, and jazz at 13; the music gave him the freedom of expression he was looking for, and at 16 he started his international career.
