Exploring the topic of historically-informed performance in this episode is violinist Alina Ibragimova. She’s got a new album out now of the Telemann Fantasias for solo violin, that she’s recorded on a venerable Amati instrument, with a baroque bow and gut strings. Alina shares her personal journey of discovering historically informed performance, as well as some tips to approaching the style – including how it’s not just about playing without vibrato.
Alina is the first violinist of the Chiaroscuro Quartet, which features in our November 2022 Session Report.
