Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Mutter has rarely played with such freedom and warmth, obviously enjoying these display pieces every bit as much as the repertory concertos and new works that are her staple diet... The tender repose which she then brings to the Massenet "Meditation" is thus all the more affecting...

-- Edward Greenfield, Gramophone
reviewing the Fauré, Massenet and Wieniawski works, originally released on DG 437544


Anne-Sophie Mutter was only a teenager when she made these recordings. The Mendelssohn shimmers with clarity, its undulating melodic charm captured with grace and refinement.
