Alina Ibragimova & Cedric Tiberghien: Live ABC broadcast on Saturday
Alina Ibragimova and Cedric Tiberghien arrived in Australia yesterday, getting through customs in record time. Today they rest in Melbourne before their first concert there tomorrow night, which will be broadcast live around Australia on ABC Classic FM from 8pm.
Alina Ibragimova & Cedric have been receiving a lot of praise for their recent Wigmore Hall Live release of Beethoven’s violin sonatas. Duncan Druce nominated the first CD Editor’s Choice in the August 2010 issue of Gramophone, writing:
“These performances are brimful of life; there’s a sense of joy and freedom, with fast passage work that’s exceptionally clear and even, and expressiveness that ranges from extreme delicacy to passionate intensity. The liveliness has another aspect, too: Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien have clearly thought about each phrase, every expression mark, with such detailed individuality as to banish routine interpretation. As a result, the character of each sonata emerges with vivid clarity.”
