Anne-Sophie Mutter plays Beethoven

with Lauma Skride

On-sale dates
Anne-Sophie Mutter playing the violin

Three of Beethoven’s most celebrated violin sonatas from one of the world’s pre-eminent violinists.

Anne-Sophie Mutter barely needs introduction; she’s unchallenged amongst living violinists for the beauty of her sound and the sheer breadth of her expressive range. Beethoven’s Spring and Kreutzer sonatas offer a challenge worthy of her mastery.

And at the summit of her international career, Mutter finds herself increasingly drawn to music on a smaller scale. ‘I’ve always loved chamber music, and love it more and more’, she says. ‘No other music has such intimacy.’ Her Beethoven is unrivalled, but this programme offers more than just authoritative, radiantly beautiful playing – it’s effectively a portrait in-the-round of a violinist without equal.
