"Destined to be a force in the classical music firmament for decades to come" The Times
Alina Ibragimova is unquestionably one of the greatest violinists of her generation.
An ex-participant of BBC Radio 3’s New Generations Artist Scheme, Alina has established an international career that includes directing Mozart from the violin with the Kremerata Baltica in Salzburg and performances of all the repertoire concertos with orchestras such as the Philharmonia, the BBC Philharmonic, the BBC Symphony, the BBC Scottish Symphony and Vienna Chamber Orchestra. A regular at the BBC Proms, she's also given chamber music recitals at the Salzburg and Verbier festivals and solo recitals at the Wigmore Hall, the Louvre and on Japanese television, and appeared with Gidon Kremer at the Lockenhaus Festival.
Alina is currently recording the complete cycle of Beethoven Violin Sonatas with Cédric Tiberghien for the Wigmore Hall Live label, as well as for Hyperion for whom she’s recorded the complete solo violin music by Bach, the complete violin works of Karl Amadeus Hartmann and Szymanowski.
Albion Media worked with Alina to help establish her as a classical musician of the highest quality and has obtained interviews in the national press as well as having her become the first ever classical musician to appear on the front cover of Time Out.

THE BRIEF TO ALBION MEDIA
Albion Media was appointed to handle Alina Ibragimova’s public relations after she has completed her time as a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. Ibragimova takes an approach to her career that is both serious and considered, and Albion Media reflected this in the chosen approach to her public relations.
APPROACH and ACHIEVEMENTS
Albion Media focused in the first instance on the core classical media in a targeted and highly selective fashion; the aim was to establish Alina Ibragimova in the media as a young artist of the highest integrity. As her reputation has grown through her live performances and recordings – comprises rarities (Hartmann and Roslavets), Szymanowski chamber music and, a landmark in any violinist’s career, Bach’s Solo Sonatas and Partitas – so Albion Media has opened up opportunities in mainstream media: for instance, in Autumn 2007 Ibragimova became the first classical artist ever to appear on the cover of Time Out, while her Bach prompted appearances on BBC 2‘s Culture Show and BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, and an interview in the Daily Telegraph. In May 2009 her stature was recognised with the award for Young British Classical Performer at the Classical BRITs.
