This is the third of the ongoing series from the partnership of Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien. As before, the program mixes the early—two works by the precocious ten-year-old—with the mature, and includes Mozart’s final violin sonata.
Gramophone Magazine wrote earlier this month:
“Avoiding the twin traps of over-inflation and simpering coyness, the symbiotic partnership of Tiberghien and Ibragimova respect the music’s innocence while relishing every tiny opportunity for mischief and humour. If the ear is naturally drawn to Tiberghien’s limpid, subtly colored pianism in these keyboard-dominated works, Ibragimova ensures that her discreet contributions always tell.
Here is Alina Ibragimova with Cedric Tiberghien in amazing music from this recording:
