Viktoria Mullova: Stradivarius in Rio
Saturday 18 November 2017 7.30pm at St John's Downshire Hill
Since winning the Gold Medal at the 1982 Tchaikovsky Competition and, one year later, dramatically defecting from the USSR, Viktoria Mullova has become one of the greatest and most musically curious violinists active today. She has explored, among other genres, baroque violin and jazz, and she has toured with Julian Joseph. In this concert, a band of virtuosos will play works by icons of Brazilian popular music, including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano Veloso and Marisa Monte.
With Matthew Barley (cello), Paul Clarvis (percussion) and João Luis Nogueira Pinto (guitar).
