Europe and USA Mozart Violin Concertos

15 Mar 2019 – In May and June, Mozart’s Violin Concerti Nos. 2 (D-major, K. 211), 3 (G-major, K. 216) and 5 (A-major, K. 2019) are the focus of attention: as part of an extensive tour, Mutter performs with the Chamber Orchestra Vienna-Berlin in Germany, Greece, Luxembourg, Austria, Switzerland, Slovakia and Spain as well as the USA.

Anne-Sophie Mutter dedicates the concert at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg on May 18 to boys and girls in Yemen, calling attention to the dramatic circumstances in the crisis region. The donations of the evening will benefit the projects of Save the Children in Yemen.

Mutter fell in love with Mozart’s music when she was six years old. Three years later, she made her debut with a provincial orchestra. However, one of the earliest highlights of her career was her performance of the G-major Concerto under Herbert von Karajan’s baton when Anne-Sophie Mutter was thirteen. In 1978 her recording of the Violin Concerti Nos. 3 and 5 with the Berlin Philharmonic and von Karajan was released. In 2018 – commemorating the 40-year anniversary of this first recording she made for Deutsche Grammophon – the label released the audiophile deluxe edition The Early Years: the analogous tapes were remastered; the high-resolution audio format 2.0 24bit/192kHz allows the listener to experience the violinist as if she were standing right there. Mutter first recorded the Mozart Violin Concerto No. 1 in 1991 – with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields under Neville Mariner. On the occasion of Mozart’s 250th birthday in 2006, Mutter presented new recordings of the tour programme – with the London Philharmonic Orchestra under her own musical leadership.
