  • 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.
