André Previn's Tango Song and Dance, written for Anne-Sophie Mutter, and premiered at the Lucerne Festival in 2001, gives the title to the most popular programme Anne-Sophie has recorded since her Gold-winning Carmen-Fantasie.

Previn's composition, Tango Song and Dance, is the introduction to a number of virtuoso pieces: Brahms's Hungarian Dances, Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, three Kreisler melodies, and the songlike, beautiful Fauré Sonata.

Album of the week: 'The warmth and romantic passion of the playing are enhanced by the rich sound captured by DG.' Music Week

'The disc bears witness to her individuality as one of today's supreme violinists'. Gramophone

'Tango Song and Dance, written for her by her new husband, André Previn, is an engaging piece with a melting central movement reminiscent of Korngold. Here Mutter finds a warmth and lyricicsm that is not much in evidence elsewhere and tosses off the jazz-inspired finale with aplomb. Fauré's First Sonata, too, is handled with flair and delicacy.' BBC Music Magazine

'We've waited a long time for Mutter to record Fauré's glorious A major Sonata with Orkis . . ., but it's been well worth it...Time and time again I found myself drawing breath in wonder, not only at the suppleness of Mutter's phrasing, temporal elasticity and the way she 'magics' passing moments, but her unfailing control over the music's overall shape, so that those moments where Fauré unlocks the structure, illuminating all that leads towards and away from it, arrive as overwhelming waves of musical elation...Essential listening.'  International Record Review

'Mutter is back in superb form with this new recital disc, her first in collaboration with her composer-conductor husband. The title work, Tango, Song, and Dance, was written for Mutter by Previn several years before their marriage. It's a light but by no means fluffy piece, and an attractive addition to the fiddle repertoire, blending melody and bravura in a piquant mix. A sensual tango leads to the central "Song", a simple touching melody with a hint of sadness. The closing "Dance" is bustling and virtuosic with a pronounced jazz flavor. Mutter plays the work with dedication and gleaming facility while Previn handles the less flashy piano part with aplomb. Mutter's regular accompanist, Lambert Orkis, takes the keyboard part for an idiomatic and expressive rendering of Fauré's Violin Sonata No. 1, which conveys the Gallic melancholy and virtuosity in fine measure. Three of Brahms's Hungarian Dances offer fizzing performances and if some of the self-conscious manners that disfigured her Beethoven disc are apparent in No. 1, Mutter's sinuous way with No.7 would charm birds out of the trees. No complaints about the three Kreisler encores, which have great febrile feeling and true Viennese spirit. In Heifetz's arrangements of excerpts from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, Previn returns to join Mutter in wonderfully fresh and beguiling performances. A languorous Summertime and warm, subtly nuanced Bess, You is My Woman Now are among the hightlights, along with It Ain't Neccessarily So, where Mutter's sleazy phrasing would make Sportin' Life proud.' Sun-Sentinel

'Mutter fills her performance with juicy cabaret portamentos and creamy playing. The score is intended to offer plenty of scope to display her dexterity, her vibrato exaggerated to convey the seductive atmosphere of the opening movement. A passionate and nostalgic central song leads to a jazz finale, the violin flying around the piano accompaniment with dazzling alacrity. Mutter adopts a gypsy fiddler's approach to the three Hungarian Dances, glides around the strings in the Porgy and Bess excerpts and serves Kreisler's music with all the whipped cream of a Viennese coffee house. The impassioned and volatile approach to Fauré's First Sonata introduces a few unmarked rubatos, with dynamic indications taken to the permissible extremes. The passion Mutter brings to the opening movement contrasts well with the purity of the second, while her mercurial third movement leads to a nicely
restrained account of the finale.'
 The Strad

'...it's a substantial work, and the rhythmically difficult final Dance movement is particularly exciting stuff.' Fanfare

'The violin playing is sensational! Anne-Sophie Mutter's intonation is flawless.This is an eclectic collection of pieces. Ms. Mutter adapts her phrasing and tone so characteristically to portray not only the essence of each selection but also all of the trappings - the ambiance of pieces as diverse in style as the Brahms and Gershwin . . . the sweetness and solidity of sound is all present. This is a beautifully rendered violin/piano disc which I return to frequently.' Audiophile Audition
