Europe Tour – Video Blog The Mutter Virtuosi Tour 2016

In April 2016 Anne-Sophie Mutter embarks on the fifth concert tour with her foundation’s exclusive ensemble of soloists: Mutter’s Virtuosi will perform on ten evenings in Aix-en-Provence, Barcelona and eight German cities. Sir André Previn’s Nonet for Two String Quartets and Double Bass opens the concerts, followed by Johann Sebastian Bach’s Double Concerto for Two Violins and Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.

The Previn Nonet – commissioned by the violinist for Mutter’s Virtuosi and dedicated to her – had its world premiere in Edinburgh on August 26, 2015, and will be performed for the first time at all the halls on this tour.

The soloist ensemble under Mutter’s musical leadership includes 15 string players this year; they are joined by the Norwegian harpsichordist Knut Johannessen. Anne-Sophie Mutter first toured with her Virtuosi in 2011, followed by concert tours to Asia in 2013, North America in 2014 and various European summer festivals in 2015.
