Eric Rynes


“Does any other violinist in town devour so much terrifyingly difficult music for violin? Nope. This superb musician...”

The Stranger

“Even in a city rich with players enthusiastic about new music, Eric Rynes stands out ... Listening to Mikka and Other Assorted Love Songs, Rynes’ new CD of contemporary solo violin pieces, you might be incredulous that only two of the nine works include computer-realized sounds, so varied and strange are the colors drawn from the instrument”

Seattle Weekly

“Eric Rynes’s violin was so achingly beautiful that I came close to tears a few times”

“[Mikka and Other Assorted Love Songs] is a marvelous CD and you are a marvelous musician. I enjoyed the pieces, and I enjoyed your art of performing, intelligent virtuosity, sensitivity and authentic temperament”

Helmut Lachenmann
