Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter is joined by the Berlin Philharmonic conducted by Herbert von Karajan for this recording of Violin Concertos by Mendelssohn & Bruch.
Karajan took the young Anne-Sophie Mutter under his wing in the early 1980s and together they produced this recording of Mendelssohns and Bruchs famous violin concertos. Mutter said: "Karajan taught me to find the common thread that runs through a score, to think the music through to its logical conclusion not simply to juxtapose notes in long overarching paragraphs, but to place them in the service of the musical idea. This is something that has lodged in my memory with particular force."
