Alina Ibragimova (violin)

Performing music from baroque to new commissions on both modern and period instruments, Alina Ibragimova has established a reputation as one of the most accomplished and intriguing violinists of her generation. This has been illustrated by her prominent presence at the BBC Proms since 2015; aside from concerto performances from the standard repertoire, her Proms appearances have included a concert with a baroque ensemble, and two late-night Royal Albert Hall recitals featuring the complete Bach partitas and sonatas about which The Guardian commented, ‘the immediacy and honesty of Ibragimova’s playing have the curious ability to collapse any sense of distance between performer and listener’. In the 2018 Proms, Alina gave the premiere of the Rolf Wallin violin concerto with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Edward Gardner.

Recent highlights include concerto debuts with major orchestras across North America, Europe, the UK and Japan, and return engagements with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Alina has also toured extensively in Australia with the Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Tasmania symphony orchestras as well as with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.

Her long-standing duo partnership with pianist Cédric Tiberghien has featured highly successful cycles of the Beethoven and Mozart violin sonatas at the Wigmore Hall. Highlights among recent engagements include a three-week tour of Japan and Korea, extensive touring of North America and a Berlin debut recital at the Pierre Boulez Saal.

Born in Russia in 1985 Alina studied at the Moscow Gnessin School before moving in 1995 with her family to the UK where she studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School and the Royal College of Music. She was also a member of the Kronberg Academy Masters programme. Alina’s teachers have included Natasha Boyarsky, Gordan Nikolitch and Christian Tetzlaff.

Alina has been the recipient of awards including the Royal Philharmonic Society Young Artist Award 2010, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award 2008 and the Classical BRIT Young Performer of the Year Award 2009, and was a member of the BBC New Generation Artists scheme from 2005 to 2007. She was made an MBE in the 2016 New Year Honours List.
