"Mutter is the undisputed queen of violin-playing..." The Times
" Mutter's command of the instrument, particularly her range of color, is second to none. The precision of her bow arm allows for perfect attacks and releases on double-stops, even at the level of a whisper. And when she lets her turbo-charged sound roar fully out, you feel it almost physically. " By Robert Battey, The Washington Post, November 15, 2010

For over three decades Anne-Sophie Mutter has been one of the most acclaimed violin virtuosos of our time. Since her Lucerne Festival debut in 1976 and 1977 Salzburg debut with Herbert von Karajan, she has performed concerts in all the major music centers of Europe, North and South America and Asia. In addition to performing major traditional works she has continually treated her audiences to new and innovative repertoire, both in chamber music and orchestral works. She also uses her popularity and renown for the benefit of numerous charity projects and supports the . . . development of young, exceptionally talented musicians.
Her recent DG recordings of The Mozart Project (all of Mozart's major compositions for violin in celebration of the composerís 250th birthday), a Mendelssohn CD (Violin Sonata in F, Piano Trio in D minor and Violin Concerto in E minor celebrating the composerís 200th birthday) and Gubaidulina's Violin Concerto In tempus praesens coupled with Bachís Violin Concerto in A minor and E major demonstrate her profound interest in celebrating composers past and contemporary. Anne-Sophie Mutterís most recent recording of Brahmsí Violin Sonatas performed together with Lambert Orkis was released on the Deutsche Grammophon label in March 2010.
Earlier projects of the complete Beethoven and Brahms sonatas, alongside her premieres of works by Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutoslawski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir Andrť Previn and Wolfgang Rihm present a picture of an artist still perfecting and exploring repertoire more than 30 years after her debut.
