Cédric Tiberghien and Alina Ibragimova first met as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2005. The unique partnership that developed between them was picked up by The Times,which 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 has gone on to perform throughout Europe and North America, has toured Australia and Asia and has been a regular guest of Wigmore Hall in London since first presenting an acclaimed complete cycle of the Beethoven violin sonatas in the 2009/10 season.

In January 2019 the duo made a first and memorable appearance in the SJE Art International Piano Series performing Beethoven, Janáček and Schumann. Tonight they will focus entirely on Felix Mendelssohn.

This concert is sponsored by Rita Rattray.
