Notes and Editorial Reviews

Deutsche Grammophon celebrates Anne-Sophie Mutter’s 35th anniversary! – 35 years of concert performances by this great violin virtuoso.

• Arranged chronologically, the compilation’s sequence offers a comprehensive look at ASM’s Deutsche Grammophon career — from her Mozart debut in 1978 to her Brahms Sonatas in 2010, with all of her musical partners
• The very first track is a special treat: the 11-year-old Anne-Sophie Mutter playing a solo movement by Prokofiev at a music competition in 1974 – a first release ever
• The track-list includes many of Ms. Mutter’s favourite recordings — ranging from Vivaldi and Bach to Lutosawski and Bernstein — including movements from all of the great concertos in between. All
Read more repertoire has been approved by the artist.
• Worth checking out: the breathtaking virtuosity on Zigeuenerweise and the Mendelssohn Concerto; beautiful one-offs, such as Debussy’s Beau Soir and Gershwin's It Ain’t Necessarily So
• Full-colour booklet with a newly written appreciation of ASM’s career by violin specialist Tully Potter (in English, German, French)
• Selection of rare photos, including childhood images
• Two CDs for the price of one CD
