WhereSt Peter's Church of Ireland Drogheda Louth
The UK Times said of this duo, “both of these players have the potential to conquer the world”. Cédric Tiberghien first performed in St Peter’s Church of Ireland during the Drogheda Arts Festival in 2016. For this concert, he is joined by his duo partner Alina Ibragimova. Together they have recorded numerous CDs and have toured the US and Europe to great acclaim. The duo is also a regular guest of the Wigmore Hall in London, where it presented an acclaimed complete cycle of the Beethoven violin sonatas in the 2009/10 season. This was followed in 2015-16 by a series of 5 concerts as part of the Hall’s ‘The Mozart Odyssey’ series which saw them perform the complete sonatas for Violin and Piano by Mozart.
Both Cédric and Alina enjoy flourishing careers as soloists, appearing with many of the world’s leading orchestras and as solo recitalists in some the most distinguished venues and festivals on the circuit.
This is an exclusive concert for Drogheda. It is not being repeated in Ireland.
