Event details

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.

Here Mullova joins Richard Egarr and the Academy of Ancient Music for a concert that sets the sublime against the joyful, in music by Haydn, JS and CPE Bach.

The mercurial moods of CPE 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 JS Bach’s St Matthew Passion, in which the purity of the countertenor voice is set in dialogue with its wordless spirit-double, the violin.

Continuing the AAM’s ‘From her Pen’ series, which champions the unjustly neglected music of the Baroque’s women composers, the concert concludes with ‘Sinfonia’ from Pallade e Marte by the enigmatic Maria Margherita Grimani.
