 Update me on new releases by Mullova

Viktoria Mullova

Mullova’s playing is a testimony to her taste and eclecticism, in which she may be likened to fellow Russian Tatiana Grindenko, while her overtly intelligent, non-conformist approach parallels that of her contemporary Nigel Kennedy. She studied in Moscow with Volodar Bronin (a pupil of David Oistrakh) and at the Tchaikovsky Conservatory with Leonid Kogan, going on to win top prizes in the Wieniawski, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky Competitions. Her most significant career move came a year after winning the Tchaikovsky Competition when (like Gidon Kremer a decade earlier) she defected to the West, was almost immediately recruited by the Philips record label, and quickly built an international reputation. Since then she has developed and put into practice an interest in Baroque performance, as well as pursuing crossover, pop, ethnic and jazz genres.

Her mainstream performances (demonstrated by her 1985 Tchaikovsky Concerto) display lightness and elegance as well as the necessary depth and virtuosic heat. Equally, Mullova and Labèque perform the Ravel Sonata in G (2005) with appropriate delicacy and lithe elasticity.
