In this coming January, as part of the Wigmore Hall 2015/6 season, the duo
will conclude their five-part survey of Mozart’s
violin and piano sonatas. In doing so, they will range the entire span of
his near0unrivalled career. The recital begins with the Violin Sonata No. 33 (1785), known for its wild twists and turns. Each movement has its own distinct
structure, revealing the full technical artistry of the composer’s work. It
will be followed by the slight but irresistibly melodic Violin Sonatas No. 6 & 7 (1764), composed when
Mozart was merely eight years old. The first half draws to a close with the Piano
Sonata No. 17 (1789), in a 1800 version that includes a violin part.
After the interval, Ibragimova and Tiberghien will launch into the mid-period Violin Sonata No. 19 (1778) and the rarely performed 12 Variations ‘La bergère Célimène' (1781). Then, to close both the concert and their survey, they will play the Violin Sonata No. 35 (1787), the composer’s final – and perhaps greatest – complete contribution to the genre. For lovers of Mozart, this recital looks to be one of the highlights of the classical year.
