Charismatic Russian-born violinist Viktoria Mullova is a world star in classical music, admired as much for her pioneering performances as for her astonishing versatility. Her recitals combine searching intelligence with electrifying virtuosity.
Mullova is joined by the brilliant French pianist Katia Labèque for a typically eclectic recital, rich in opulent melody.
Together they travel from the impulsive freshness of Schumann’s gloriously tuneful First Violin Sonata to the exquisite beauty of Ravel’s jazz- and blues-tinged Violin Sonata, by way of Prokofiev’s easygoing Solo Sonata, the mesmerising serenity of Arvo Pärt, and the sumptuous, Debussyan lyricism of Takemitsu.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Viktoria Mullova and Katia Labèque are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
