violin & piano duo
Alina Ibragimova & Cédric Tiberghien
Cédric Tiberghien and Alina Ibragimova first met as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2005. The unique partnership which developed between the two artists was picked up by ‘The Times’ who concluded its review of Cédric and Alina’s final recital as part of New Generation Artists, at the 2007 Cheltenham Festival, by commenting “Both of these players have the potential to conquer the world”.
The duo have gone on to perform throughout Europe and in North America, appearing at major venues including the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall in New York and the San Francisco Performance series as well as a major tours of Australia and Asia. The duo is also a regular guest of the Wigmore Hall in London, where it presented an acclaimed complete cycle of the Beethoven violin sonatas in the 2009/10 season. This was followed in 2015-16 by a series of 5 concerts as part of the Hall’s ‘The Mozart Odyssey’ series which saw them perform the complete sonatas for Violin and Piano by Mozart.
Both Cédric and Alina enjoy flourishing careers as soloists, appearing with many of the world’s leading orchestras and as solo recitalists in some the most distinguished venues and festivals on the circuit.
