Alina Ibragimova + Cédric Tiberghien
Performing music from baroque to new commissions on both modern and period instruments, Alina Ibragimova has established a reputation as one of the most accomplished and intriguing violinists of the younger generation. This was illustrated in her prominent presence at the 2015 BBC Proms, which included a concerto with a symphony orchestra, a concerto with a baroque ensemble and two Royal Albert Hall late-night recitals featuring the complete Bach partitas and sonatas, which commanded capacity audiences, and for which The Guardian commented: “The immediacy and honesty of Ibragimova’s playing has the curious ability to collapse any sense of distance between performer and listener”.
Pianist Cédric Tiberghien’s flourishing international career spans five continents taking him to some of the world’s most prestigious halls, including, most recently, Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Centre in Washington, the Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Wigmore Hall and Barbican in London, the Salle Pleyel and the Theatre des Champs Elysees in Paris, Berlin’s Bechstein Hall, Salzburg’s Mozarteum, the Sydney Opera and Tokyo’s Bunka Kaikan and Asahi Halls.
Programme includes: Brahms: Violin Sonata No.2 in A major, Op. 100; Cage: 6 Melodies (1950); Schumann: Violin Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 121
