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 Mendelssohn’s and Bruch’s 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."

A nostalgic look back at early 80s digital

I bought this album on analogue cassette as a violin student back in the early 80s when it first came out. Over the next year I wore that cassette out on my Walkman. When I knew it was being reissued on LP I jumped at the chance to reacquaint myself with it, with the added bonus that with the large LP cover, I could finally discern the fine stitching on Mutter's dubiously coloured sweater! Time has not tarnished my opinion of the technically flawless performances which are very conservative both musically and in terms of tempi. At age 18, Mutter's mature musical personally was yet to emerge and thus there is a very distinctive difference in style between these performances and those of later years. The sound does suffer from its 16 bit origins and this is more noticeable in the Bruch than the Mendelssohn, though Gunter Hermanns did as good as job as anyone back in this early digital era. The sound is thus very good for early digital and certainly better than the old analogue cassette!
