VIKTORIA MULLOVA
Violin (1750 G.B. Guadagnini, gut strings; baroque bow Walter Barbiero) A=415

Catalogue No: ONYX4040

"To hear Mullova play Bach is, simply, one of the greatest things you can experience”, wrote the London Guardian. ONYX now proudly announces Viktoria Mullova’s first complete recording of the Bach Sonatas & Partitas, sure to be one of its most important releases for many years. 

For Philips in the early 1990s Viktoria recorded the 3 Partitas on a modern violin but she has never recorded the Sonatas, and in the meantime her interpretations have been transformed by her studies in Baroque practice and her subsequent performances with masters such as Gardiner, Dantone, Harnoncourt, Antonini and il Giardino Armonico and her use of a Guadagnini 1750 with gut strgins and a Baroque bow. Viktoria's fascinating sleevenote recounts her lifelong Bach journey that begins with her studies in Soviet Russia 
 
This is Mullova’s fifth release on ONYX: previous releases including Bach Sonatas with Dantone (ONYX4020) and Vivaldi Concertos with Giardino Armonico (ONYX4001), all highly praised. The 2CDs sell at a special price.
