Alina Ibragimova Tops the Charts with Her Bach Violin Concertos
"A conversation between friends"
After transfixing Proms audiences with her live solo Bach performances, violinist Alina Ibragimova headed back into the studio to record her latest release for Hyperion Records. She teamed up with Jonathan Cohen, and his highly talented ensemble Arcangelo, for five Bach Violin Concertos.
These readings of two undisputed masterpieces and three probable reconstructions are performances to treasure. Upon release it debuted at No.2 on the Official Charts (UK) Specialist Classical chart , No.5 on the Official Charts (UK) Classical Artist Albums chart and No.14 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart.
BBC Music Magazine named it Recording of the Month for December 2015. Listen to editor Oliver Condy and reviews editor Rebecca Franks discuss the recording on their monthly podcast.
