The Secrest Artists Series presents violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cedric Tiberghien in concert April 6 in Bendle Recital Hall in Scales Fine Arts Center.
The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m. A pre-concert talk will be held at 6:40 p.m. in Room M208 in Scales Fine Arts Center.
The Russian/English violinist and the French pianist are considered among the finest collaborating musicians in Europe. The London Times concluded its review of the duo’s recital at the Cheltenham Festival with the statement “Both of these players have the potential to conquer the world.” The duo’s concerts at London’s Wigmore Hall were received with great acclaim, and Ibragimova’s many recordings on the Hyperion label have established her as one of the world’s greatest younger violinists.
The program will include the music of Bach, Brahms and Schumann.
Wake Forest faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists Series performance. Wake Forest students receive free admission for themselves. All are asked to have their IDs at the door.
