In a stunning recording career of over three decades, Anne-Sophie Mutter has sold upwards of 10 million albums.
Renowned for her technical facility and limitless range of expressive colors, Mutter is the undisputed "Queen of the Violin" (Times of London) - a musical legend of our time.
It is no exaggeration to call this recording an historic venture: Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Berliner Philharmoniker, whose deep and lasting artistic relationship was forged in the 1970s, came together once again at the Berlin Philharmonie to make their first studio album in almost 30 years.
Anne-Sophie Mutter has chosen to pair Dvorak's Violin Concerto with his fiery Mazurek Op. 49, and the Romance in F minor for violin and orchestra Op. 11. The album also includes Dvorak's irresistible Humoresque. All works on this recording exemplify the vivid color, touching melancholy and folkloric tunefulness that are trademarks of Dvorak's style.
