Mozart’s violin sonatas span his entire career—the early ones are billed as piano sonatas with optional violin accompaniment—and they develop over the years into the first triumphs of the modern genre. Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien have been enthralling audiences worldwide with these works, and now the first instalment is available as a highly desirable 2-for-1 album.

“It would be hard to imagine more persuasive performances than we have here from the ever-rewarding Tiberghien-Ibragimova duo: delicate without feyness, rhythmically buoyant..., and never seeking to gild the lily with an alien sophistication.”

Presto Classical

“The fluidity of the partnership between Ibragimova and Tiberghien is key to the success of this album – in the earlier works the piano is to the fore, while in the others the balance swings more towards the violin, and in each case they’ve evidently thought about where the right midpoint lies between the two extremes.”
