Faena Art presents Alina Ibragimova & Cédric Tiberghien violin and piano duo as part of the Soledades Program, a series of one-time-only solo performances by cultural practitioners across philosophy, science, music, poetry, and other disciplines.

Performing music from baroque to new commissions, on both modern and period instruments, Russian-born violinist Alina Ibragimova seemingly defies the laws of physics, playing with an “immediacy and honesty” that collapses “any sense of distance between performer and listener” (The Guardian). Ibragimova has a long-standing partnership with pianist Cédric Tiberghien, whose flourishing international career spans five continents where he has performed at some of the world’s most prestigious halls. In the words of BBC Music Magazine, “Few players of this music combine such clarity and articulation with shimmering sparkle and virtuosic flair; this is sophisticated pianism.”

Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien first met as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2005. Immediately finding a rare musical and personal rapport, they performed together in a number of studio sessions and in concerts at the Wigmore Hall and at festivals around the UK.

The duo have gone on to perform throughout Europe and in North America, appearing in venues including the The Royal Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Theatre des Champs Elysées in Paris, Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Vancouver Recital Society and the San Francisco Performance series as well as a major tours of Australia and Asia.
