World of Strings - Strad In Rio

“…music for balmy nights, cool drinks, a tropical greeting from Sugar Loaf Mountain.”

Banish the early winter gloom and luxuriate in arrangements of classic songs by legendary Brazilian composers Caetano Veloso, Antônio Carlos Jobim, Marisa Monte and Zequinha de Abreu played by a stellar quartet of soloists.

This project was devised by internationally renowned violinist Viktoria Mullova who, in the words of The Guardian, brings “dancing virtuosity” to music that is “as dazzling as the sights and sounds of Brazil.”

All ticket holders are invited to stay on for an informal Q&A session with Viktoria Mullova after the concert.


Viktoria Mullova

Russian-born world class violinist who studied at the Central Music School of Moscow and at the Moscow Conservatoire. Her extraordinary virtuosity captured international attention when she won first prize at the 1980 Sibelius Competition in Helsinki and the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1982. 'Among mainstream big-name violin soloists, Viktoria Mullova is rare in her enthusiasm for period style and historical practice' (The Sunday Times) 'Beethoven's Kreutzer Sonata is one of the miracles of the repertory... and is here freshly re-imagined by Mullova' (The Observer) 'This new Viktoria Mullova release will probably raise as many hackles as it does roars of approval' (The Daily Telegraph, May 2010).

'Barley plays with the micro-instincts of a violinist, shading every phrase with the subtlest of nuances' (Sinfini Music).
