Product Description

Product Description

The luminous partnership of Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien returns to Hyperion for this double album containing Schubert's complete music for violin and piano. Their intelligence and technical prowess, their seamless and intimate connection as performers and their profound understanding of the music combine in magical performances.

While still in his teens, Schubert wrote four works for violin and piano that could have been given the label 'sonata', yet none of the four was published with that title. The first three, completed in 1816, bear instead the designation of 'Sonatina', perhaps to appeal to the amateur market. But these are highly accomplished works by the teenage composer and there is little 'domestic' feeling in the extended, mysterious unravellings of D385 which hint at compositions yet to come.

The later Violin Sonata in A major, D574 (now described as a 'Duo'), urges the violinist on to greater virtuosic feats, and the Rondo in B minor even more so, with the piano sometimes treated as a surrogate orchestra. The extensive Fantasy in C major, written in the last year of Schubert's life, is a masterpiece: the composer's greatest achievement in this genre, which combines poignancy with sheer joy in life itself.

Review

These two young artists have already made fine discs together,including a complete cycle of Beethoven's Sonatas. Here we get all of Schubert's works written for violin and piano, in performances which is hard to imagine ever being bettered. Performance ***** Recording ****' --BBC Music Magazine, Sept'13

Set to become the yardstick against which other performances will be judged.***** --Sinfini Music 14/08/13

These performnces exhibit that feeling of spontaneous enjoyment which animated Ibragamova and Tiberghien's live Beethoven set from the Wigmore Hall...full of energy and grace, and the barnstorming finale , rivalling the famous 1931 recording of Busch and Serkin. --Gramophone, Sept'13

Ibragimova and Tiberghien rise admirably to Schubert's late musical and technical challenges. In the aforesaid finale, they really let their hair down and the result is truly exhilarating. --IRR, Sept'13
