Alina Ibragimova & Cedric Tiberghien’s busy Sydney weekend & ABC broadcast
Alina Ibragimova and Cedric Tiberghien have had a busy weekend. On Saturday they performed Schubert, Brahms, Szymanowski and Strauss to a very appreciative Sydney audience. Sunday saw them give a very special performance of sonatas by Ravel and Lekeu for the Sydney branch of Musica Viva’s Amadeus society.
As well as their own performances, they went to see a performance by Bangarra Dance Theatre on Friday night and a Sydney Symphony Orchestra concert on Saturday night. But never fear, lest you should think the pair are over-doing things, they have today booked themselves in for massages. No doubt they’ll be relaxed, focused and inspired for tonight’s second Sydney concert.
Tomorrow the duo travel to Melbourne for their second Melbourne concert of the tour. Their tour concludes with a series of CountryWide performances: Bathurst on Thursday 21 October, Coffs Harbour on 22 October and Armidale on 23 October.
And anyone hankering to relive Alina and Cedric’s performance can do so thanks to ABC Classic FM who are streaming one of their live broadcasts until 12 November 2010.
