Notes and Editorial Reviews

Anne-Sophie Mutter; Chicago Symphony/James Levine. DG 437 093.

Mutter’s expressive, impassioned account of this concerto, recorded in 1992, is one of her greatest achievements on disc, a triumph both technically and interpretively. The concentration she brings to the task, the telling way she characterizes the kaleidoscopic moods through which the concerto passes, is something to marvel at—she grasps this extraordinary, complex piece whole, at the same time revealing its most minute details with unprecedented clarity. Levine and the Chicago Symphony rise to the occasion with playing of immense power and brilliance, and the recording is first-rate. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD
