About Viktoria Mullova
Viktoria Mullova is a violinist primarily known for her great virtuosity and a wide-ranging repertory that includes many crossover pieces. On the serious side, she has been praised for her interpretations of various solo works by J.S. Bach, including the partitas and sonatas, as well as her readings of concertos by Brahms, Prokofiev (No. 2), Shostakovich (No. 1), and Sibelius. Her forays into more popular realms have included pieces by the Beatles, Miles Davis, and Duke Ellington (Through the Looking Glass). Over the years, Mullova has developed a reputation for her highly individual interpretations and for her ability to communicate with her concert audiences. She has also grown to favor historically correct instruments and practices. In 2022, Mullova issued a historical-instrument reading of music by Schubert with Alasdair Beatson.
