The violin concertos by Mendelssohn have featured prominently in Alina’s career—she has performed the E minor concerto with conductors including Sir Charles Mackerras and Philippe Herreweghe and, whilst still a student at the Yehudi Menuhin School, performed the D minor concerto at Menuhin’s memorial concert in November 2000, when The Times wrote that her ‘thrilling journey through Mendelssohn’s youthful Concerto in D minor was astonishing: many players twice her age would be lucky to command her unforced strength and fullness of tone.’
