Ibragimova gave a towering and thrilling performance with brilliant intensity and precision. Sydney Morning Herald, 2017

Presented by the Australian Chamber Orchestra

Intense, passionate and heartachingly beautiful music played by one of the world’s finest violinists, Alina Ibragimova. This is repertoire that doesn’t so much tug as it does rip at your heartstrings.
Witnessing Alina Ibragimova play violin is an experience that produces awe-inspiring energy that crackles the air and raises goosebumps, yet her fiery intensity is balanced by an exquisitely nuanced subtlety to her playing.

We begin with Barber’s universally adored Adagio for Strings which frequently reduces audiences to tears, along with Karl Amadeus Hartmann’s Concerto funebre, written in response to the horrors of the Second World War (initially bearing the title Music of Mourning). The program climaxes with Schubert’s darkly romantic ‘Death and the Maiden’, which forms the heart of the program. Far from gloomy, but full-on in its ambition, this concert touches on such a range of human emotions – and all the light and darkness therein – that it will stay with you for weeks.
