Alina Ibragimova, Violin & Cédric Tiberghien, Piano
Shortly after Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien first began their musical partnership in 2005 as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists, The Times declared that “both of these players have the potential to conquer the world.” And this is precisely what the pair proceeded to do—consistently topping classical charts, receiving coveted awards for their recordings, and enjoying devoted followings across five continents. The duo finally makes their Princeton University Concerts debut within the remarkable intimacy of Richardson Auditorium, a space in which their uncanny ability to fuse any sense of distance between their respective instruments and their audience will be all the more heightened. For this occasion they bring us Schumann’s first two violin sonatas interspersed with the calm beauty of a work that Mendelssohn wrote when he was just 14-years-old, and Webern’s pithy and lyrical early masterpiece.
