About Anne-Sophie Mutter

Anne-Sophie Mutter is widely regarded as one of the greatest violinists of modern times, combining technical virtuosity, beauty of tone, and exceptional charisma. She has nurtured the classical music scene through her own Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation, which has commissioned new works and fostered the careers of younger violinists. Mutter appeared in recital at the Lucerne Festival when she was 13 and was heard there by legendary conductor Herbert von Karajan. He invited her to make her orchestral debut with the Berlin Philharmonic in 1977 and to collaborate with him on her 1978 debut recording. Among Mutter's many honors are four Grammy Awards and the 2011 Erich-Fromm-Preis for the advancement of humanism through social engagement. In 2020, Mutter joined cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Daniel Barenboim for an all-star recording of Beethoven's Triple Concerto, Op. 56. She returned in 2022 with a recording of John Williams' Violin Concerto No. 2.
