Alina in North America: a debut in Toronto & return to Seattle
For the next two weeks, Alina Ibragimova visits North America, making her debut appearance with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra with Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto conducted by Andrey Boreyko, as well as performing Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra conducted by fellow AH artist and Seattle Music Director, Ludovic Morlot.
Praised as “nothing short of brilliant” for her debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in 2015, Alina appears increasingly regularly in the region, with recent seasons including concerto performances with Boston Symphony, Montreal Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra and North Carolina Symphony among others, a late-night concert at Lincoln Center’s Mostly Mozart Festival, as well as solo recital tours and performances with long-standing duo partner Cédric Tiberghien.
Over the next seasons, Alina looks forward to further debut engagements with the Royal Concertgebouw (28 & 29 March 2019 with Sir John Eliot Gardiner) and Minnesota Orchestras (21 & 22 March 2019 with David Danzmayr), and returns to the London Symphony Orchestra, Chamber Orchestra of Europe (with Bernard Haitink), Swedish Radio Symphony (8 November with Daniel Harding) and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment (31 May 2019 with Vladimir Jurowski).
Other recent concerto highlights include debuts with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Sinfonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony and Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony, and returns to the London Philharmonic and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. Alina has also toured extensively in Australia with the Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Tasmania symphony orchestras as well as with the Australian Chamber Orchestra.
Alina performs with Toronto Symphony Orchestra on 24, 25, 26 and 27 October and with Seattle Symphony Orchestra on 1, 2 and 3 November.
