Viktoria Mullova (violin) Venice Baroque Orchestra Harpsichord and conducting: Andrea Macon

A superb violinist with a remarkable career, an Italian exemplary formation of the historical performance style, and an 18th century musical paradise: this is the promise of the concert that spans all the way from the great and minor masters of Baroque to two giants of Viennese Classicism. Winner of the Sibelius competition in 1980, then the Moscow Tchaikovsky competition in 1982, Viktoria Mullova defected amidst remarkable circumstances, going on to enjoy a glittering career. She represents the rich tradition of the great Russian school of violin while having a personality that is open to music as a whole (from Baroque to jazz), and these factors always make her performance style hugely exciting. The historical Venice Baroque Orchestra (founded: 1997) are certain to be up to the task and equal partners of Mullova, since the ‘standards’ of their repertoire also feature on the concert programme: for instance, the Violin Concerto in D major by famous Venetian ‘Prete Rosso’ Antonio Vivaldi, immortalizing in its title ‘Il Grosso Mogul’ Akbar I who once ruled a large part of India.
