French pianist, Cédric Tiberghien makes a welcome return to Drogheda this time with the brilliant Russian/British violinist Alina Ibragimova for a programme of violin and piano works including Franck’s famous Violin Sonata. The Guardian described them as ‘today’s partnership of choice for violin and piano repertory’. 

Cédric Tiberghien first performed in St Peter’s Church of Ireland during the Drogheda Arts Festival in 2015 and for this concert, he is joined by his duo partner. 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 they 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.

The Series is funded by the Arts Council and Louth County Council and is produced in partnership with Droichead Arts Centre.
