Anne-Sophie Mutter – Vivace

In Cinemas on March 28, 2023 Anne-Sophie Mutter – Vivace

2 Feb 2023 – The child prodigy turns 60! At the tender age of 13, Anne-Sophie Mutter was discovered by star conductor Herbert von Karajan. An unprecedented, worldwide career followed. She once said about herself: “If you want to get to know me, you must see me on stage.” She discourages questions about her private life. So how does one portray such an exceptional artist?

The filmmaker Sigrid Faltin reckoned one would learn more about the artist by observing her in conversation with familiar persons, or those she would find interesting. Asked whom she would like to speak to, Anne-Sophie Mutter spontaneously named tennis star Roger Federer, magician Steve Cohen from New York, conductor Daniel Barenboim, legendary film composer John Williams (Star Wars and others), composer Jörg Widmann and her long-standing pianist Lambert Orkis, “musically my best buddy”. In exchange with these companions, she explains why she identifies with outstanding athletes, how she came to wear her signature concert gowns, and why she regrets no longer playing the piano. She speaks extensively about the early death of her husband, her life as a single parent and the balancing act of squaring all that with a breath-taking world career as a professional musician.

The four-time Grammy® winner has received not only numerous international prizes and awards, but also a German First-Class Cross of Merit and two honorary doctorate degrees.

Anne-Sophie Mutter – Vivace is a documentary portraying one of the greatest performers of our times not only as a musician, but also as an athletic, politically and socially active woman. Sigrid Faltin has complemented the conversations with archival footage from five decades, creating a close-up portrait.

Anne-Sophie Mutter – Vivace is a production of SWR, in cooperation with SWR Media Services GmbH, Naxos Audiovisual Division and Deutsche Grammophon.

Filmwelt Verleihagentur will distribute the film throughout Germany starting on Tuesday, March 28, 2023.
