“To hear Mullova play Bach is, simply, one of the greatest things you can experience”, wrote The Guardian. One of the world’s greatest violin virtuosos, Viktoria Mullova’s musical horizons continue to expand. She has journeyed into the world of jazz and world music, she works regularly with the period ensembles such as Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Il Giardino Armonico, Accademia Bizantina and Venice Baroque as well as appearing each season with top international orchestras and conductors.
This season, Viktoria performs Classical and Romantic repertoire with several major orchestras and conductors. Highlights include performances with Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre National des Pays de la Loire, Helsinki Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, Barcelona Symphony and NHK Symphony Orchestras. Her chamber music projects include ‘Music we Love’; a duo with Misha Mullov-Abbado, double bass, featuring his original compositions, arrangements of Brazilian and Hebrew songs and works by Schumann and Bach. With Alasdair Beatson she plays Beethoven recitals on gut strings and fortepiano, which they have recently recorded for release in 2021.
Her most recent project, “Stradivarius in Rio” sees her exploring the music of Brazil. A CD of the same name has been enthusiastically received and she is presenting the project in concerts throughout Europe.
As well as her own projects, she has also commissioned works from composers such as Pascal Dusapin, Fraser Trainer, Thomas Larcher and Dai Fujikura.
Viktoria plays either her ‘Jules Falk’ 1723 Stradivarius or a Guadagnini violin.
