1901年由德国「贝赫斯坦Bechstein」钢琴公司所建造的伦敦威格摩尔音乐厅，原名「贝赫斯坦音乐厅」。当年五月三十一日与六月一日，在义大利钢琴家布梭尼、比利时小提琴家意沙易以及乌克兰钢琴家帕赫曼等大师的音乐会中揭开序幕。一次世界大战期间的1916年，由英国公司买下并改名「威格摩尔音乐厅」。此厅以文艺复兴风格设计，完美的音响效果适合独奏、声乐以及室内乐的演出。在其一百多年的历史中，吸引无数音乐家在此献艺，包括作曲家圣桑、普罗柯菲夫、普朗克、亨德密特、葛人杰、钢琴家许纳贝尔、鲁宾斯坦、声乐家梅尔巴、卡罗素、舒娃兹柯芙，以及大提琴家杜普蕾和阿玛迪斯四重奏团等。此厅不但是音乐家们在伦敦初次登台的主要场所，更深受乐坛大师级人物与广大听眾所喜爱。(Wigmore Hall Live)
关於本辑：小提琴家伊贝拉吉莫娃Alina Ibragimova / 贝多芬小提琴奏鸣曲(1)
1985年出生於俄罗斯的女小提琴家伊贝拉吉莫娃，学自莫斯科葛尼辛（Gnesin）、英国曼纽因音乐学校以及伦敦皇家音乐院。她先后在名师Natasha Boyarsky、Adrian Butterfield和Gordan Nikolitch门下学习，之后则在德国小提琴名家特兹拉弗（Christian Tetzlaff）的大师班继续深造。伊贝拉吉莫娃出道以来已录有多张CD，本辑是她在威格摩尔厅一系列贝多芬小提琴奏鸣曲音乐会之一，她已在2010年五月二十五日完成最后一场的现场录音（第三、六、九号），相关CD应该也会在近期内发行。本辑发行之后大获好评，不仅获得留声机杂誌「编辑严选奖」，更在BBC音乐杂誌、国际唱片评论International Record Review、美国时代杂誌等媒体获得乐评一致推荐。除了巴哈无伴奏，贝多芬小提琴奏鸣曲是伊贝拉吉莫娃挑战德奥音乐的第二部曲，她充满自信与活力的演奏和提伯肯恩的钢琴几乎是同一步调，直率自然的情感起伏展现大将之风。在特立独行与主流詮释间她带来一股新鲜但又被认同的声音，在新生代演奏家中诚属难得。伊贝拉吉莫娃使用的是1738年瓜奈里琴。学自巴黎国立高等音乐学校的法国钢琴家提伯肯恩，曾於1998年赢得隆－提博大赛首奖，他和伊贝拉吉莫娃都是英国广播公司新世代艺术家成员。提伯肯恩完美无暇的钢琴支撑，更成就了这份值得收藏的现场录音。

Violinist Alina Ibragimova and pianist Cédric Tiberghien launch a planned series of three CDs of Beethoven sonatas with this release. They first played Beethoven together during their two years (2005-7) as BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists.
Autumn 2009 at Wigmore Hall brought the duo’s first complete cycle of Beethoven sonatas, comprising three concerts. These were preceded by a number of Beethoven performances around the country, all growing from a week’s residency at Aldeburgh, which brought intense rehearsal of the sonatas, “playing, talking, thinking, morning until evening, feeling the connections, the moods, the links between each sonata, each key,” explains Tiberghien. “To travel through all ten sonatas, to play them live, is really something that changes you, as a musician and also as a human being”.
For her part, Ibragimova feels that “the sonatas explore limitless possibilities of forms and emotions, which one is never tired of discovering, and the cycle remains one of the richest we have in music.”
The Observer review of their Wigmore Hall concert vividly evoked the players’ rapport:
“The phenomenal Ibragimova, who studied in the UK and plays in a period-instrument quartet, springs from a new tradition, one informed by fresh knowledge and scholarship. Playing a 1738 Pietro Guarneri of Venice violin, she makes a lithe, muscular sound, with fast, light bowing, limited vibrato and dexterous agility.
This suits the binary nature of Beethoven's sonatas, each instrument sharing a phrase, responding, accompanying in minutely charted balance. Tiberghien played out thunderously when the melodic line was his, but was alert to the dangers of covering Ibragimova's light sound, never overwhelming her.”

Cédric Tiberghien and Alina Ibragimova first met as members of the BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists scheme in 2005. Immediately finding a rare musical and personal rapport, they performed together in a number of studio sessions and in concerts at the Wigmore Hall and at festivals around the UK. The unique partnership which developed between the two artists was picked up by ‘The Times' who concluded its review of Cédric and Alina's final recital as part of New Generation Artists, at the 2007 Cheltenham Festival, by commenting "Both of these players have the potential to conquer the world".
The duo went on to perform throughout Europe and in North America, appearing in venues including the Concertgebouw Amsterdam, the Theatre des Champs Elysées in Paris, the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid, the Carnegie Hall in New York, the Vancouver Recital Society, as well as a major Musica Viva tour of Australia. The duo is also a regular guest of the Wigmore Hall in London, where it presented an acclaimed complete cycle of the Beethoven violin sonatas in the 2009/10 season. Future plans include extensive touring in Asia (Taipei, Nagoya, Tokyo and Hong Kong), an appearance at the prestigious San Francisco Performances series, and a complete Mozart sonata cycle at the Wigmore Hall in London.
Cédric and Alina's Beethoven cycle was recorded for a three-volume release on the ‘Wigmore Live' label, attracting unanimous praise from the press. International Record Review gave each volume its "IRR Outstanding Recording" award, commenting that "In every way, it proves an extraordinary achievement". The Times was equally enthusiastic: "Spontaneous, impulsive, young and fresh, the violinist Ibragimova and the pianist Tiberghien make an electrifying partnership".
The duo's other recordings are all available on Hyperion: its first release on the label featured the complete works by Szymanowski (2009), and was followed by a disc with Ravel's complete works coupled with Lekeu's Violin Sonata (2011), which both attracted renewed superlatives from the press: "Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien have become today's partnership of choice for violin and piano repertory", ‘The Guardian' commented on their Ravel release, while ‘The Times' stated that "this CD is a joint triumph".
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.
