Notes & Reviews:

Classic FM
Alina Ibragimova and CTdric Tiberghien possess the rare gift of being able to recreate on disc the same captivating spontaneity and musical intensity that distinguishes their concerts.

Hyperion welcomes back the duo of Alina Ibragimova and Cédric Tiberghien for a double album of Schubert's complete music for violin and piano. Their intelligence and technical prowess, seamless and intimate connection as performers and profound understanding of the music combine for magical performances. While still in his teens, Schubert wrote four works for violin and piano that could have been given the label 'Sonata,' yet none of the four was published with that title. The first three, completed in 1816, bear instead the designation of 'Sonatina,' perhaps to appeal to the amateur market. But these are highly accomplished works by the teenage composer that hint at compositions yet to come. The program also includes the Violin Sonata in A major, D574, the Rondo in B minor and the Fantasy in C major. Written in the last year of Schubert's life, the Fantasy is truly a masterpiece and the composer's greatest achievement in this genre, combining poignancy with sheer joy in life itself.

The Observer, 4th August 2013
Most bewitching of all, and performed with a lightness and poise by this established duo, is the Fantasy in C major, breaking convention at every turn, written in 1827.

BBC Music Magazine, September 2013
Here we get all of Schubert's works written for violin and piano, in performances which it is hard to imagine ever being bettered...Alina Ibragimova and Cedric Tiberghien don't attempt to make them bigger or greater than they are.

MusicWeb International, 10th September 2013
These are magical performances by two young artists who clearly enjoy the joint experience of music-making. Intelligence and integrity mark these interpretations out with distinction. I was very taken by the rich tone of the violin, which is an Anselmo Bellosio of 1775... This is one of the listening highlights of my year - all in all a consummate achievement.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
I have been very impressed by some of the recordings I have heard by Alina Ibragimova and Cedric Tiberghien, so I had high hopes for this set of all of Schubert's music for violin and piano. Their dynamic contrasts are often tremendous, and Afanassiev is not afraid to thunder. I find myself hanging on every phrase, and everything that they did with the music sounds right. They don't just read through these scores, they interpret them, and how!
