Sergei Prokofiev

Violin Concerto No. 1, in D major, op. 19
— Intermission 20 min. —

Dmitri Shostakovitch

Symphony No. 10, in E minor, op. 93
Duration approximately: 90 min.

Considered one of the greatest violinists of our time, Alina Ibragimova plays with an immediacy and honesty that “has the curious ability to collapse any sense of distance between performer and listener” (The Guardian), as if the notes she plays were addressed exclusively to each listener, in a sharing of sublime musical intimacy. Highly praised for her recording of Prokofiev’s Violin Sonatas, the violinist returns to this sublime repertoire at Gulbenkian Music under the direction of Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański, who conducts Shostakovich’s powerful and visceral 10th Symphony in the second part.
