Mutter & Orkis embark for Festivals

Starting August 20, 2017

Anne-Sophie Mutter returns from her summer break with another recital tour, performing with Lambert Orkis at the festivals in Schleswig-Holstein (August 20th), Gstaad (August 24th) and Salzburg (August 26th). Throughout its collaboration, the Grammy-winning duo has presented composers from all eras to its audience and has also given world premieres of several works. From their broad repertoire, they have selected works by Currier, Mozart, Poulenc, Ravel and Saint-Saëns for this tour.

In May 2014, The Silver Album was released, a double album by Mutter and Orkis containing the world’s first recordings of Penderecki’s La Follia and Previn’s Violin Sonata No. 2, as well as new recordings of Massenet’s Méditation from Thaïs and Ravel’s Pièce en forme de Habanera. These 40 minutes of music are complemented by sonatas by Beethoven, Brahms, Fauré and Mozart, as well as a selection of the duo’s legendary encores, for example Debussy’s Beau Soir and Kreisler’s Caprice viennois Op. 2

Manfred Honeck conducts the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

At the Salzburg Summer Festival, she also performs with Manfred Honeck, who conducts the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. On August 29, the programme features music by Witold Lutoslawski: his Partita for Violin and Orchestra and Chain 2 – Dialogue for Violin and Orchestra. The Partita was dedicated to her by the composer, and the violinist made the first recordings of both works in 1988, in which Witold Lutoslawski conducted the BBC Symphony Orchestra himself.

In August and September 2017, Anne-Sophie Mutter gives further performances with Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in Germany, England, Romania and Switzerland. She performs the Violin Concerto by Antonin Dvořák, which she recorded for CD with the Berlin Philharmonic under Manfred Honeck in 2013.

It was in August 1976 at the Lucerne Festival that Anne-Sophie Mutter first set foot on the world’s stage. She was thirteen at the time. The following year she made her Salzburg Whitsun Festival debut under Herbert von Karajan... more [+]


Benefit Concert for Integration Projects in Leipzig

Together with the Gewandhaus Orchestra and Herbert Blomstedt

Anne-Sophie Mutter is not only a singular artist personality, she is also constantly active in questions of education policy. Thus, last year at Leipzig’s Moritzbastei, the violinist played a benefit concert in aid of the project “Integration durch Bildung” (“Integration through Education”) of the Leipzig Refugee Council. To Anne-Sophie Mutter, it is a socio-political necessity that refugees “are given a chance at the best possible integration within their new homeland” and a matter of course that “ they need all our support and empathy to reach this goal”. Therefore, Anne-Sophie Mutter suggested that the revenue generated by the Gewandhaus Orchestra’s Grand Concert under the baton of Herbert Blomstedt on March 18, 2017 should be donated to “Integration through Education e.V.” and “Interaction Leipzig e.V.”. The donated sum of 60,000 Euros was divided and each project received half. The artists did not take any fees; the Gewandhaus Orchestra was not playing as part of its regular services. “Please join our efforts by helping with a donation,” the violinist encourages further supporters. MORE [+]

Support for the SOS Children‘s Villages in Syria

Live from the Yellow Lounge

In May 2015 Anne-Sophie Mutter put her noble, impressively named “Lord Dunn-Raven” Stradivarius through more than ist usual paces. For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin...
