Ján Krigovský

Studoval v letech 1985 – 1990 na Konzervatórium Košice (Tibor Velíšek), 1990 – 1995 na VŠMU Bratislava (Radoslav Šašina) a v letech 2001 – 2002 sa na Schola Cantorum Basiliensis specializoval v hre na kontrabase s tzv. viedenským ladením (David Sinclair).

Centrom jeho záujmu je interpretácia komornej a sólovej tvorby ako aj orchestrálna hra. Ako komorný hráč spolupracuje s mnohými súbormi, predovšetkým so súbormi špecializujúcimi sa na starú hudbu: Wiener Accademie (Martin Haselböck), Ars Antiqua Austria (Gunar Letzbor), La Cetra Basel (Ciara Banchini), Capriccio Basel, Freitags Accademie Bern, Royal Orquestra Catalunia (Jordi Savall), Collegium Marianum Praha (Jana Semerádová), Collegium 1704 Praha (Václav Luks), La Fioritta Basel, Freiburg Barock Orchester, medzinárodné združenie Octet Ampion (získal 1. cenu na súťaži klasicistických nástrojov v Holandsku, 2003) a s domácim zoskupením pre súčasnú hudbu Alea (ved. Boris Lenko). Jeho umeleckými partnermi boli o. i. Bohdan Warchal, Ewald Danel, Peter Zajíček, Miloš Valent, Alexander Jablokov – vn; Jozef Podhoranský – vc, Magdaléna Kožená – ms, a dirigentské osobnosti Claudio Abbado, Serge Baudo, Jordi Savall, René Jacobs, Sigiswald Kuijken a ďalší.

Sólisticky spolupracoval sdomácimi telesami Capella Istropolitana, ŠKO Žilina, Musica aeterna a s mnohými zahraničnými, ako napr. L’Orfeo v Linci, Capriccio Basel, Konzerthaus Viedeň a Musikverrein Viedeň. V priebehu štúdia a po jeho ukončení pôsobil v početných orchestroch a súboroch na Slovensku (ŠF Košice, Št. divadlo Košice, Komorná opera Bratislava, SĽUK, ŠKO Žilina, SND Bratislava, Musica aeterna a ď.).

Ján Krigovský sa predstavil sólisticky, či ako člen komorných ansámblov na popredných evropských festivaloch ako sú Wiener Festspielwochen, Salzburger Festspielwochen, Festspielwochen in München, ďalej na festivaloch starej hudby v Taliansku, Rakúsku, Švajčiarsku, Nemecku, Holandsku a v Španielsku.

Pedagogicky je aktívny nepretržite už od štúdia na VŠMU. Vyučoval na konzervatóriu v Žiline (1994 – 1996) a na súkromnom konzervatóriu v Topoľčanoch (1996 – 2001). Od roku 2000 pedagogicky pôsobí na Cirkevnom konzervatóriu v Bratislave a od roku 2002 na Akadémii umení v Banskej Bystrici. Ako komorný hráč nahrával pre slovenský, český, nemecký (CPO, WDR, NDR, ZDF), rakúsky (ORF, ORF1, Institut für Tyroler Musikforschung Innsbruck) a francúzsky (Pan Clasic, Arcana) rozhlas a televíziu. Koncertne sa venuje tiež hre na husle, píšťalky, cimbal, klavír a spevu.

„Je vyhľadávaným kontrabasistom predovšetkým v súboroch autentickej interpretácie, ako aj v súboroch pre súčasnú, ľudovú a experimentálnu hudbu, a to pre jeho hráčsku zručnosť, muzikalitu a kvalitu zvukového prejavu. Ako sólista sa Krigovský prejavuje ušľachtilou, temperamentnou, technicky dokonalou hrou.“
