New release: Vierne & Franck: Violin Sonatas
Cédric and Alina's latest duo CD has just been released, and includes works by Louis Vierne, César Franck, Eugène Ysaÿe and Lili Boulanger.
The disc has been awarded recording of the week by Presto Classical, and selected as one of the finest recordings in March 2019 by Gramophone magazine:
“[Franck sonata] from Ibragimova a sweet, even sound that’s light-toned without being lightweight, supported by a touch from Tiberghien at the keyboard that sounds like mellow, amber-hued raindrops, and all the while a gradual crescendo and strengthening of tone from both so subtle that it happens almost imperceptibly… The Vierne Allegro risoluto equally showcases sharper-edged energy, and yet more golden tenderness with its Andante sostenuto. Add the palette-cleansing Boulanger, and this is wall-to-wall wonderful.” Gramophone, March 2019
The disc is available to buy from:
Hyperion , Presto Classical , Amazon and iTunes
