Alina Ibragimova (violin) State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia 'Evgeny Svetlanov', Vladimir Jurowski

The prospect of hearing Alina Ibragimova in two of the most important concertos written for the violin is in itself irresistibly enticing, but Shostakovich aficionados will also welcome an opportunity to hear the rarely performed original opening to the Burlesque of No 1, subsequently made less fearsome for the soloist at the request of the work’s dedicatee, David Oistrakh.
