Alina Ibragimova is teaming up with influential filmmakers and animators the Brothers Quay for a programme of solo violin music at this year's Manchester International Festival.
Ibragimova will play works by Berio, Bach, Biber and Bartók in a promenade performance, leading audiences of 100 around the Chetham's School of Music building. A specially commissioned stop-motion animated film by the Brothers Quay will accompany Ibragimova's playing of the Bartók Solo Violin Sonata. Eighteen performances of the programme are scheduled between 1 and 17 July.
Ibragimova last played at the Manchester International Festival in 2009, when she performed solo Bach in an auditorium installation by Zaha Hadid Architects.
