Anne-Sophie Mutter and Daniil Trifonov about recording Schubert’s “Trout”

Two stars from different generations, artists of the highest calibre, mark their first collaboration with an album devoted to one of the supreme landmarks of classical music. Anne-Sophie Mutter, who in 2016 celebrated the 40th anniversary of her professional debut, and Daniil Trifonov, now in his mid-twenties, joined forces with three outstanding young string playing alumni of the Mutter Foundation at the Baden-Baden Festspielhaus in June to perform Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A major... more [+]

On November 11, the violinist performs once again with former and current fellows of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation: at the Konzerthaus Berlin, André Previn’s Piano Trio, Ludwig van Beethoven’s String Trio in C-Minor Op. 9 No. 3 and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Piano Trio No. 2 in E-Minor Op. 67 will be played. She is joined by Vladimir Babeshko (viola), Daniel Müller-Schott (cello) and Lambert Orkis (piano). In 1989 Anne-Sophie Mutter recorded Beethoven’s early string trios with Mstislav Rostropovich and Bruno Giuranna – she revisits one of them in this Berlin programme. 

Mutter & Orkis on tour

Starting November 12, 2017

With her recital tour in November 2017, which takes her to four German cities and to Barcelona, Anne-Sophie Mutter commences her programmatic focus of 2018. Honouring the Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, who celebrates his 85th birthday this coming year and who has been her friend for many years, she has programmed two of his works for this tour: the Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 2, which she commissioned and premiered in 2000, and the Duo concertante per violino e contrabbasso, commissioned by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. For this work, the outstanding double bass player and former fellow of the Foundation, Roman Patkoló, originally gave the first impulse. The famous Partita in D-Minor by Bach, the Scherzo from Brahms’ romantic F-A-E Sonata and a selection of his Hungarian Dances frame the intriguing programme. The piano part is played by Lambert Orkis, with whom Anne-Sophie Mutter will celebrate 30 years of continuous collaboration in 2018.

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...
