Anne-Sophie Mutter

As a teenage violin student, one of my first classical violin CDs was that of Anne-Sophie Mutter playing Mozart violin concertos no. 3 and 5, with the Berlin Philharmonic, conducted by Herbert von Karajan.  Her interpretation of Mozart was my go-to inspiration as a student, and probably still is today.  Thirty plus years later I am still in awe of this powerful performer as she maintains a busy touring schedule, and doesn’t seem to slow down at all.

I finally got to listen to her play live a few years ago, when she played the Dvorák violin concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and boy she did not disappoint!  She still has that vibrant, strong and smooth (no, that’s not an oxymoron) sound like no other, and as I watched her play live I was profoundly struck by her dedication and love for her art.
