Violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cedric Tiberghien form a chamber music dream-team in soaring romantic showpieces by Ysaÿe, Franck and Havergal Brian.
Ysaÿe Poème Élégiaque
Franck Violin Sonata in A
Alina Ibragimova Violin | Cedric Tiberghian Piano
“Both of these players have the potential to conquer the world” wrote The Times soon after violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cedric Tiberghien – then both BBC New Generation Artists – first played together in 2007. 15 years on, they’re being described as “today’s partnership of choice for violin and piano repertory” and this lunchtime concert from the elegant surroundings of St George’s Bristol shows why. From the brooding passion of Ysaye’s Poème to the high drama and soaring melodies of César Franck’s much-loved Sonata – as well as an anniversary tribute to British maverick Havergal Brian – this is a concert that demands emotional commitment and fearless virtuosity. Ibragimova and Tiberghien will supply it in abundance.
