“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 the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Auckland Philharmonic; Orchestra National de France and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and a tour with the Academy of Ancient Music playing Bach and Haydn concerti. 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 and duo with Alasdair Beatson, playing Beethoven recitals on gut strings and fortepiano.
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.
