Bartók alone in a room, like someone who has turned away from the disturbing chaos of his leukemia, reflecting only from an infinite distance the final meaning of complete order. A glance at a mirror captures an unknown window and initiates a rush of subtle intimations and associations of inner and outer worlds...

Audience feedback from the world premiere at Manchester International Festival 2011


'The Quay Brothers subtly magnified the sense of mystery.’ Daily Telegraph

‘Acting as pied piper, she had then led us through gloomy corridors to a baronial space for Bach’s great and sorrowful D minor Ciaccona.’ The Times

‘Held by a pause in the music, everyone in the room, Ibragimova included, seemed to be holding their breath.’ The Guardian

‘Ibragimova’s playing: passionately virtuosic, rigorously sharp.’ The Times
