BIGGAR MUSIC IS DELIGHTED TO PRESENT THIS SPECIAL VIRTUOSO VIOLINIST CONCERT.
Born in Russia in 1985, Alina Ibragimova studied at the Moscow Gnessin School before moving with her family to the UK, where she studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and Royal College of Music. She was also a member of the Kronberg Academy Masters programme.
The dazzling young virtuoso Alina Ibragimova has enthralled audiences for years with her live Bach performances. Critics have acclaimed her faultless intonation, achingly beautiful tone, superlative technique and a musical wisdom far beyond her years. In an important new recording of Bach's complete sonatas and partitas for solo violin, Ibragimova brings all these qualities and more to create an interpretation that is both excitingly original and profoundly humble. This is music of unfathomable subtlety, astounding virtuosity and great expressive and architectural beauty.
"One player, one instrument, one composer: Bach's unaccompanied violin music has always been the greatest for any player, young or old. Alina Ibragimova is already its equal".
