Peerless musicianship that serves the music, 10 Nov. 2013
I've been searching for performances of these works for years but never found anything that worked for me - until now.
For me these performances are free of stylistic mannerisms (although they are informed by period instrument performance) and they simply get to the music - which is as pure and direct as anything in Western music.
Recorded sound is bright and clear but with a sympathetic acoustic behind.
Yes Ibragimova's playing shows fine technique and a glorious sound, but it is all in service of the music - which is the best test of a fine musician.
