Alina Ibragimova (violin)

Alina's natural tendency towards a historically informed style of playing these works was formed while she was a teenager at the Yehudi Menuhin School. Her teachers at the time called for more vibrato, bigger gestures. 'I wanted something more direct,' she recalls. 'Less about me.'.
