 Pleasant Surprise January 21, 2014 By Allan Yee (Edmonton, AB) See All My Reviews "I was curious about Anne-Sophie Mutter's second version of the Beethoven and when the CD arrived and I first saw the movement timings, my heart sank. Great, this was going to be another misguided interpretation that tries to milk the emotion of the piece for everything it's worth and, like the Maxim Vengorov/Rostropovich version, ends up completely stopping the momentum of the music. Fortunately, I was mistaken. This is, in all ways, a deeper interpretation of this concerto than Mutter's first version with Karajan and shows just how much she has grown as an artist in the intervening quarter century between recordings. While not, IMHO, in the absolute first rank of recorded Beethoven violin concertos (try Huberman/Szell, the '61 Staryk/Haitink, the '62 Schneiderhan/Jochum or the '65 Suk/Sargent), it is a very good modern interpretation and the recording is first rate."
