The cd at Amazon-US : http://tinyurl.com/y7kpx5w2

Label PR : “ Alina Ibragimova is the soloist in the Violin Concerto, premiered at the BBC Proms in 2010. The piece harnesses Ibragimova’s dynamic and intense, fiercely intelligent playing, switching from attacking virtuosity and molten lyricism, often in an instant. The result is dramatic and utterly compelling.”

Seemed impressive on first hearing , will see how fares on re-hearings.
