It is no exaggeration to call this recording an historic venture: in June, Mutter and the Berliner Philharmoniker, whose deep and lasting artistic relationship was forged in the 1970s, came together at the Berlin Philharmonie, to make their first studio album in almost 30 years. Here, she records Dvorák's Violin Concerto - the last of the great Romantic violin concertos not yet in her discography.
Anne-Sophie Mutter has chosen to pair Dvorák's Violin Concerto with his fiery Mazurka Op. 49, and the Romance in F minor for violin and orchestra Op. 11. The album also includes Dvorák's irresistible Humoresque, presented in its popular arrangement for violin and piano by Fritz Kreisler.
Outstanding Recording - International Record Review
'Renowned for her technical facility and limitless range of expressive colours, Mutter is the undisputed "Queen of the Violin" - a musical legend of our time.' The Times
