Viktoria Mullova Sage Gateshead’s ‘Artist in Focus’



Viktoria Mullova is one of the Sage Gateshead’s ‘Artist in Focus’ for the 18-19 season. Under the theme of From Moscow to Rio, Vika showcases her formidable skills and musicianship, as well as her passion and curiosity for a wide range of genres. She opens her residency this week with two appearances: ‘Stradivarius in Rio’, a programme featuring some of her favourite Brazilian songs which she performs with Matthew Barley (cello), João Luís Nogueira Pinto ( guitar) and Paul Clarvis ( percussion), and a performance of Sibelius Violin Concerto with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and conductor Thomas Dausgaard.

Later in the season, Vika returns to The Sage for a recital of Beethoven sonatas on gut strings, with Alasdair Beatson on fortepiano, and additionally a concert with the Royal Northern Sinfonia.
