Product description

Product Description

The young violinist Alina Ibragimova is already established as an admired recording artist, standing alongside great artists of the past and present with her versions of Bach and Beethoven's violin works. She appears on this latest release with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and Vladimir Jurowski (in his Hyperion premiere) in a programme which includes a classic of the concerto repertoire: Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Op 64. Ibragimovas is a glittering, knife-edge performance, her playing a portrayal in itself of the musics passion held in control through exquisite craft. The Violin Concerto in D minor an unusual and welcome pairing is an early work, written when the composer was only thirteen. As with Mendelssohn's other juvenile works it is extraordinarily accomplished and exceedingly charming.

Review

"Ibragamova's sensitive playing wins the day, with some superlative quiet moments and at all times a loyal adherence to the composer's markings and a sure sense of the music s phrasing and architecture. Performance ***** Recording ****

--BBC Music Magazine, Nov'12

"Violinist Alina Ibragimova, has a wonderfully full, malleable tone, sinewy agility and deft expressiveness on this recording."**** --Telegraph. 28/09/12

"This performance of the E minor Concerto is splendid in many ways. The OAE, with its period instruments , delivers textures of unusual transparency and Alina Ibragamova's playing combines verve, brilliance and imaginative intelligence." --Gramophone, Awards issue'12

her subtle changes of colour and prodigious range of articulation are things to wonder at. **** --Guardian, 18/10/12

"This performance of the E minor Concerto is splendid in many ways. The OAE, with its period instruments , delivers textures of unusual transparency and Alina Ibragamova's playing combines verve, brilliance and imaginative intelligence." --Gramophone, Awards issue'12

At first sight Mendelssohn might not seem an Ibragimova composer, though he's never been far from her fingers; I recall her fiddling through the early Concerto in D minor as an astonishingly assured 15-year-old. She returns to this attractive piece here, now burnished with the mature musician s chameleon grasp of colours and modes of attack, and knack for febrile excitements. The same gifts keep the warhorse Concerto in E minor continually fresh. **** --Times, 05/10/12

Alina Ibragimova gives us an idea how the composer's E minor concerto might have sounded during its premiere. **** --Financial Times ,18/11/12
