Catalogue number 480 065-7

Anne-Sophie Mutter is a serious violinist. Serious in the sense of world-class and serious in the sense of her choice of music.

Her early recordings are of Beethoven, Brahms and Mozart. She devoted all of 1998 performing and recording the Beethoven violin sonatas with Lambert Orkis. More recently, she has championed the works of contemporary composers; Witold Lutoslawski, Norbert Moret, Wolfgang Rihm and Krzysztof Penderecki (who dedicated his second violin concerto to her, Mutter's recording of it winning 2 Grammy awards).
Serious music from a serious musician who Herbert von Karajan described as "the greatest musical prodigy since the young Menuhin".

In this CD, however, she really lets her hair down. TheCarmen-Fantasie is pure fun. Fun to listen to and from the sounds of it fun to play. (And, I'm sure, fun to watch). Not all classical music has to be deep and meaningful. These are largely encore pieces, designed to bewitch the listener with breathtaking violin wizardry. And its no surprise that many of these pieces were written by virtuoso violinists.
