Violinist Viktoria Mullova: On the Discovery and Creation of New
Thursday, November 8
Violinist Viktoria Mullova has been one of the world’s most admired concert and recording artists for decades now. Since winning the Sibelius Competition in 1980 and the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1982 she has recorded for major classical labels and performed with the most distinguished orchestras in the great international concert halls. Lately she has taken up projects in the realm of pop, jazz and world music. And this week Viktoria Mullova collaborates with her husband, cellist Matthew Barley, SSO Music Director Ludovic Morlot and the orchestra in the United States premiere of a new violin and cello concerto by Pascal Dusapin. Viktoria Mullova talks to KING FM’s Dave Beck about the new Dusapin piece and reflects on how her musical tastes and approach to the violin have evolved over the years.
