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 elite handful of ‘greatest’ violinists active today. Her musical curiosity has led her to extensive explorations of, among other genres, baroque violin and jazz, and she has toured with Julian Joseph. In this concert, Viktoria will be joined by three other virtuosos in works by icons of Brazilian popular music, including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Caetano Veloso and Claudio Nucci. With Matthew Barley (cello), Paul Clarvis (percussion) and João Luis Nogueira Pinto (guitar).
Also part of the 2017 EFG London Jazz Festival
