Alina Ibragimova is already firmly established as one of today’s most exciting young violinists. Recent performances have been as diverse in genre as they are geographically; the Beethoven concerto with the Seattle Symphony, a tour of Asia of the complete Beethoven sonatas, directing the Academy of Ancient Music in Haydn, and Berg with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
This week, Alina makes her eagerly awaited debut with the London Symphony Orchestra. Three performances, culminating in a concert at the Barbican Centre will see her perform the Schumann Violin Concerto with conductor Sir John Eliot Gardiner. Although her debut with the orchestra, Alina and Sir John Eliot are already an established team, and with Sir John Eliot and the LSO continuing their exploration of Mendelssohn during the rest of the programme, these concerts are not to be missed!
