Listen to Alina Ibragimova & Cedric Tiberghien on ABC Classic FM
Alina and Cedric’s first Australian concert was a resounding success on Saturday night. There was some simply gorgeous playing in all the works, and a number of the audience rose to their feet at the final call. The stand-out of the evening was the Szymanowski, which really brought out these performers’ terrific technique and their wonderful gifts for colour and atmosphere. The encore was the second movement of Beethoven’s Sonata No.6, offering a beautiful taste of what might be to come when they do No.10 in the second program.
We’re also very excited about the duo’s upcoming performance of Paul Stanhope’s new work for violin and piano, Agnus Dei (After the Fire) which receives its world premiere in Hobart tonight!
You can hear the ABC Classic FM recording of Saturday’s concert here until the 9th of October.
