In the third year of the coronavirus pandemic Concert plans 2022

2 Jan 2022 – In the third year of the coronavirus pandemic, all concert plans are still contingent on the authorities’ regulations combatting the virus. Anne-Sophie Mutter’s concert calendar for 2022 once again reflects the musical versatility of the violinist and her outstanding position in the classical music world.

At the Lucerne Festival, she will give the world premiere of the Air for Violin and Orchestra by Thomas Adès, which she co-commissioned. Lucerne will also see the performance of the Violin Concerto No. 2 by Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. She performs the violin concerto Anne-Sophie, which André Previn dedicated to her, in several German cities – including at the Usedom Music Festival. Here, her appearance at the former turbine hall of the Peenemünde Power Station with the New York Philharmonic and Jaap van Zweden sets an impressive signal for international understanding, far beyond German-American relations. In 2022 Anne-Sophie Mutter performs the Brahms Double Concerto together with cellist Pablo Ferrández – both with the Czech Philharmonic and Manfred Honeck as well as the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Ed Gardner. The violinist performs Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in the USA, both with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Riccardo Muti, and in Germany with the Pittsburgh Orchestra under Manfred Honeck. Another musical focus in 2022 is on John Williams’ oeuvre: in the USA, Mutter performs his Violin Concerto No. 2, of which she is the dedicatee, and a selection of the virtuoso adaptations of film scores Williams created especially for her. These performances are conducted by the composer. Chamber music programmes are also planned: violin sonatas and piano trios by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Lambert Orkis and the cellists Maximilian Hornung and Lionel Martin. Further recitals with her long-standing piano partner will feature works by Beethoven, Franck and Mozart. During a chamber music tour with active and former fellows of her foundation, she will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet in G-major Op. 18 No 2, Haydn’s String Quartet in E-flat-major Op. 20 No. 1 and Jörg Widmann’s Studie über Beethoven, which she gave the world premiere of in Tokyo on February 22, 2020.
