  • Alina Ibragimova & Cédric Tiberghien

When speaking about the partnership of Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova and French pianist Cédric Tiberghien, The Times of London declared: “both of these players have the potential to conquer the world." That's hyperbole, right? Or have they finally discovered the long-fabed "brown note"? There's only one way to find out, and that's to catch this highly-hyped duo live during their one-night-only swing through town, when they'll play a selection of three Beethoven violin sonatas, including the monumental “Kreutzer." So get a ticket. And while you're at it, Wikipedia "brown note." You'll thank me.

Kenny Matsuura of The Flying Machine Revival Quartet and the HGL Big Band take over the Fringe Dairy for a night of slick classical jazz. Expect all things Duke Ellington. After all, it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing: Take it as read that this gig means a whole lot.

The CU Chorus is dedicating its next concert to the godfather of Cantopop, Joseph Koo Kar-fai—most known for composing the themes to "The Way of the Dragon," "The Bund of Shanghai," and "Hotel," among other epic Cantopop throwbacks (mostly reserved for the most intense Cantonese karaoke nights). For a rare chance to see the legend in action, Koo himself will take the role of guest conductor for the evening, accompanied by celebrity performers Paula Tsui...
