Alina Ibragimova Guest Director & Violin

Witnessing Alina Ibragimova play violin is an experience that produces the kind of awe-inspiring energy that crackles the air and raises goosebumps on the arms. Yet her fiery intensity is balanced by an exquisitely nuanced subtlety to her playing.

We begin with Barber’s universally adored Adagio for Strings which frequently reduces audiences to tears, along with Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s Concerto funebre, written in response to the horrors of the Second World War (initially bearing the title Music of Mourning). 

The program climaxes with Schubert’s darkly romantic ‘Death and the Maiden’, which forms the heart of the program. Far from gloomy, but full on in its ambition, this concert touches on such a range of human emotions – and all the light and darkness therein – that it will stay with you for weeks.
