Anne-Sophie Mutter, violin
Lambert Orkis piano

2011 marked the 35th anniversary of Anne-Sophie Mutterís Lucerne Festival debut at the age of 13. Ever since, the renowned German virtuoso has been an advocate of new music. Lutoslawski wrote his Partita for her in 1984; a work considered among the finest for violin and piano since 1945. In a programme revealing the full breadth of her musicianship, Anne-Sophie Mutter performs a youthful work by Mozart; Schubertís technically demanding Fantasy, concluding with an epic Sonata by Saint-SaŽns.

ĎMutterís gold thread is reduced to a dusky murmur, before shifting through tones as subtle as they are various. Orkisís contribution is equally vitalÖpedalling up a penumbra of resonance to balance Mutterís whispers.í - The Sunday Times
