At last, here it is: Anne-Sophie Mutter's new version of the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the New York Philharmonic and Kurt Masur! She was only 16 when she first recorded it with Karajan - and it was a great success.

'The New York's recording of Mutter-Masur's Beethoven's Violin Concerto . . . is also a live one and captures pretty much all the delicate tracery and range of tone and vibrato that so delighted a packed RFH this week. For me it is the finest of recent recordings of this concerto.' Mail on Sunday

'A radical re-think of a classic - novel, provocative, sensual ...' Gramophone

'Anne-Sophie Mutter's and Kurt Masur's intorspective account of the Beethoven concerto is thoughtful and revealing of detail, an antidote for those who view the score as a romantic ramble . . . The "Romances" are splendidly done . . .' Sunday Times

Beethoven: Violin Concerto; Romances

'I believe that an artist can never achieve everything at once. It is a lifelong process . . .' (Anne-Sophie Mutter at the age of 17)

Twenty-three years and an unequalled career later, she brings all her genius to what she calls a "cathedral of a concerto". And she adds to it, for the first time, the two Violin Romances. "For long stretches the solo violin plays only arpeggiated triads, nothing more. Nevertheless there's always a musical statement being made, and you have to formulate that. The architecture of the first movement, with its great arches of tension, needs the most careful planning. The trains of thought are wide-ranging, comparable to the language of Thomas Mann."
