May 27 will see the first anniversary celebration in 2017 when Riccardo Muti conducts the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, paying homage to 40 years of the artistic partnership between Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Berlin Philharmonic. The violinist is looking forward to this special event, where she will once again be accompanied by her “standard-setting” orchestra, with the utmost anticipation: “To experience that resounding sound again, that sound that carries you forward so powerfully – yet at the same time every member has the subtlety of a soloist. Simply everything that one could wish for is there.” Of course, one Philharmonic date has especially remained in the memory of the violinist: 11 December 1976, when Herbert von Karajan first invited Ms Mutter, at the time a girl of 13 years of age, to audition. “He said, as if it was no big deal at all, that he would be delighted if we could perform together in the coming year at the Salzburg Festival at Whitsuntide.” A thunderbolt that was followed by a phenomenal career: “That day will always remain an absolutely extraordinary event in my life.”

On June 4, the anniversary concert “40 Years: Anne-Sophie Mutter at the Salzburg Festival” follows. On this evening, the artist also enables talented young colleagues to make their Salzburg debut. Together with the string ensemble “Mutter’s Virtuosi”, which unites scholarship recipients of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation, she will play Schubert’s Trout Quintet and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons – joined at the piano by pianist Daniil Trifonov. One day later, the audience in Baden-Baden has a chance to enjoy the performance of these exceptional musicians.

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 [+]

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...
