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 Rolf Wallin’s violin concerto with the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Edward Gardner.

Highlights among her concerto projects to date include engagements with major orchestras across North America, Europe and Australasia—most recently the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, State Academic Symphony Orchestra ‘Evgeny Svetlanov’, Swedish Radio Symphony, London Symphony, Wiener Symphoniker, Boston Symphony, Sydney Symphony, Tokyo Symphony and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.

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, and they are in high demand at the world’s most prestigious recital series. Together Alina and Cédric have recorded an extraordinary range of repertoire for Hyperion Records, including violin sonatas by Johannes Brahms, César Franck, Louis Vierne and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

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 2019 RPS Instrumentalist Award, the 2008 Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award, and the 2009 Classical BRIT Young Performer of the Year Award. She was a member of the BBC New Generation Artists scheme from 2005 to 2007, and was made an MBE in the 2016 New Year Honours List.
