StreamingSundays broadcast | Viktoria Mullova

Her intelligence and artistry place Viktoria Mullova among the most exciting soloists of her generation, a violinist whose bold clarity of vision lets the music speak directly to the listener.

In the fifth chapter of AAM’s StreamingSundays broadcast, Mullova joins countertenor James Hall, director Richard Egarr and the Academy of Ancient Music for a concert that sets the sublime against the joyful in music by Haydn, J.S. and C.P.E. Bach. The mercurial moods of C.P.E Bach’s Symphony in A major and the good-natured warmth and earthy wit of Haydn – heard here in his Symphony No.4 and his sparkling Violin Concerto in G major – stand in contrast to the transcendent, other-worldly beauty of Erbarme Dich from J.S. Bach’s St Matthew Passion, in which the purity of the countertenor voice is set in dialogue with its wordless spirit-double, the violin.
