This is the first non-classical project Viktoria Mullova has wholly created and produced on her own. Mullova's idea to record the songs came about during the course of several informal gigs and jams with friends over the years. Gradually the idea for the project took shape, and Mullova formed the group to include guitarist Carioca, from Rio, cellist Matthew Barley and two percussionists: Brazilian Luiz Guello, and Paul Clarvis, with whom she previously collaborated on two non-classical music albums. In August 2013 she took the group to Rio de Janeiro to record the album over three thrilling evenings.
Due for release in April 2014.
Already Viktoria Mullova's eagerly awaited new recording of Bach concertos with Ottavio Dantone and Accademia Bizantina is receiving rave reviews.
Viktoria returns to Bach after the great success of her ONYX recordings of Bach Solo Partitas and Sonatas.
Viktoria's biography 'From Russia to Love' is available now. You can buy it on Amazon, in hardcover and Kindle formats.
