VIK­TO­RIA MULLOVA (VI­O­LIN), KA­TIA LABÈQUE (PI­ANO) NCH, Dublin Thurs 8pm 115-155 01-4170000

Rus­sian vi­o­lin­ist Vik­to­ria Mullova (above, left) has a track record of ap­pear­ing at the Na­tional Con­cert Hall in classy com­pany. Her pre­vi­ous recitals there were with the likes of Maria João Pires and Piotr An­der­szewski. She’s back this week, this time in part­ner­ship with the mer­cu­rial Ka­tia Labèque (above, right) one half of the Labèque sis­ters pi­ano duo. The pro­gramme is an eclec­tic one, in­clud­ing works by three 20th-cen­tury masters (Stravin­sky’s Suite ital­i­enne, Bartók’s Hun­gar­ian Folk Tunes and Ravel’s Vi­o­lin Sonata), with the Fan­tasy in C by Schu­bert, a late work which, af­ter years of ne­glect, is be­ing taken up by an in­creas­ing num­ber of vi­o­lin­ists.
