Product Description

Review

the two artists seem as much responsive to each other as to the music itself, their interaction producing superbly integrated, rhythmically supple readings that remain utterly free of mannerism ... My final comment: bring on Volume 3 --International Record Review

The second instalment of Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien's Beethoven cycle, taken from their concerts in the Wigmore Hall, is just as exhilarating and thought-provoking as the first. Ibragimova and Tiberghien are a wonderfully matched pairing, with her astonishing command of tone colour and articulation complemented by his rhythmic alertness and lightness of touch. There's always an edge to their playing that keeps both the music and the audience on their toes, so that even a work as familiar as the Op 24 Spring Sonata can produce suprises, like the astonishingly beautiful half tone that Ibragimova conjures up for the start of its Adagio. In Beethoven's final violin sonata, the G major Op 96, both violinist and pianist understand the music's laconic, conversational style perfectly, realising how much can be implied by so little and how it demands a true blending of musical voices, with neither player dominating the other. It's beautifully judged, like all the performances here. --The Guardian.co.uk

This will surely be a very short review and the reason for its brevity has everything to do with the simplicity of my response to all three of these magical recordings of the complete Beethoven violin sonatas: I cannot banish any of these performances from my mind anymore than I can remove them from my CD player...

...What a wonderful predicament!

With over 35 years of classical music experience behind me, I can assure you that such a reaction to even the finest recordings is exceedingly rare. Kempff & Menuhin were extraordinary... Ashkenazy & Perlman were sublime... Arrau & Grumiaux were incredible in every sense of the word... but these two relative newcomers have somehow managed to surpass ALL those who have gone before them... amazing!

These are impeccable and masterful live performances that sound for all the world like they were played by musicians with far greater life-experience than the "youngsters" in question. It warms my heart beyond measure that musicians of this quality are still coming out of nowhere to blast the notion that Classical Music is on its last leg. Balderdash, I say, and long may Ibragimova and Tiberghien astound us with their seemingly infinite variety, vast musical intelligence and sheer passion for the wondrous classical duo (their latest collaberations of violin and piano music by Szymanowsky and Ravel are no doubt equally superb).

In terms of sound quality, it is refreshingly up front and detailed for a live recording, with plenty of air and atmosphere around the instruments. The applause at the end of each sonata will not detract in the least from your listening experience in that you will most likely be joining in that applause with those very fortunate few who were present at Wigmore Hall on the night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ibragimova makes her mark. 31 May 2011
By Steve49w - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have been following the Wigmore Hall Live releases of Alina Ibragimova's Beethoven Violin Sonata cycle with great interest. She and Tiberghein team up for an epic series of performances that luckily were captured live. After listening to all three volumes I have to rank above all other contemporary version. I apologize to Anne Sophie Mutter as to now hers was my favorite but these CDs show the detail and clarity needed to perform these works. I heartily recommend this and the other two CDs in the series.

These are all uniquely satisfying and highly recommendable recordings that I suggest you hear as soon as humanly possible. And might I also suggest that you acquire a second CD player as extracting these CDs from my own player has proved to be undesirable in the extreme; intimate pleasures such as these were meant to last a lifetime!

For my review of this recording...see my review of volume 1. Simply the best recordings of the violin sonatas. My only issue is that all of the recordings are not available as a box set.
