Fans of Anne-Sophie Mutter know what to expect of her. Her technique is dazzling, and she takes an individualistic, Romantic approach to whatever she plays --occasionally inundating the music with more weight than is necessary--and her tone Anne-Sophie Mutter - The Violin Concertos / Sinfonia Concertante luminous and grand.
If you like your Mozart airy and delicate you've come to the wrong place; if you like some fine showy virtuosity in fast movements and long, lush statements in the slow movements, you'll be perfectly comfortable. And indeed the slow movements are slow--occasionally hypnotically so--but they're never less than stunningly played. This is very sophisticated Mozart playing. Mutter's power and brilliance.

Annie Sophie Mutter, who can hold her own any day with the guys when it comes to the grand operatic style of fiddle playing, has chosen this time to place herself in front of a moderate sized string ensemble with horns and oboes, where, as in Mozart's time, she is only one amongst equals, neither overpowering or subduing herself to the total tonality of the music. A true soloist. To lovers of Mozart, these pieces are full of unexpected surprises and invention, and Anne Sophie Mutter, is the ideal player to reveal these works all over again for a new generation of listeners who may not know them, and the older generation who may have grown bored.
Mutter always makes you listen again, as if for the first time, to her unique way of singing: sometimes sweet and tender, others times raging with passion, reminding us that so much of Mozart's orchestral works for solo instrument sound as if they could have been great soprano arias in operas he never got to write. Particularly wonderful is her articulation in the presto movements where the notes fly forth like Vega - Paul van Dyk - Out There And Back. Virtuoso playing at its most spectacular but always in the Mozart style.
Metropolis - Various - 20 Jahre Radioeins revelation and highly recommended.
Every so often you find an almost perfect performance and recording that leaves you smiling and shaking your head in awe: Mutter Mozart -- The Violin Concertos and Sinfonia Concertante is definitely one of those.
Mutter's power, range, and stylistic sophistication are at their acme. She soars ethereally where it's required, sings sweetly in slow rhythms, and pushes forward like a commander where that's what's called for.
The London Philharmonic is beautifully in concert with her every move and timing. Yuri Bashmet's viola in Sinfonia Concertante is equally sublime. For those who first knew Ms. Mutter's Mozart playing when she was but a budding teen, it's fun to see how much her skill and interpretive abilities have expanded in 30 years. It's astonishing to Mozart* someone with that much experience can still appear quite young.
And of course, there's the irony to appreciate of Ms. Mutter now being older than Mozart was at his death. Above all this is a confident performance by players who know Mozart well, understand what they want to accomplish, and are in complete accord with what needs to be done.
The bright optimism and energy of Mozart are beautifully displayed. If you like Ms. The closest possible to musical paradise! Mozart* purchase this CD set if you don't have it already! Fantastic value. By the way, Mutter has no qualms about using a nice rich vibrato when playing Mozart! One of the best renditions of Mozart Violin Concertos ever. A true desert-island recording if I ever heard one. You won't regret! Sinfonia Concertante is one of my favorite works of Mozart.
This version is exquisite and the best I've heard. She is masterful with the concertos as well. I wil be Mozart*. These remarable pieces are played beautifully and insightfully by Ms. No Mozart worshiper should be Anne-Sophie Mutter - The Violin Concertos / Sinfonia Concertante these recordings.
