Petworth Festival

With Viktoria Mullova (violin) with Misha Mullov-Abbado (bass, composer, arranger)

One of the world’s greatest violin virtuosos, Viktoria Mullova works regularly with the period ensembles such as Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Il Giardino Armonico, Accademia Bizantina and Venice Baroque as well as appearing each season with top international orchestras and conductors.

Jazz bassist, composer and arranger Misha comes from an impeccable musical heritage, his parents being the legendary conductor Claudio Abbado and Viktoria Mullova. A 2017 BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Misha is an accomplished band-leader and a versatile sideman who has performed at London’s top venues including Ronnie Scott’s, the Vortex, 606 Club, Pizza Express and Royal Albert Hall. Having won the 2014 Dankworth Prize for jazz composition Misha is an experienced composer and is influenced by jazz, classical and pop music.

Together Viktoria and Misha have created a programme that will include arrangements by composers such as Bach and Schumann, contemporary jazz, original music and arrangements from around the world – South America, Eastern Europe and the Middle-East.

Viktoria either plays on her ‘Jules Falk’ 1723 Stradivarius or a Guadagnini violin.
