Some violinists impress by a dazzling technique, as flawless and polished as a diamond. Some impress by the intensity of their vision, their genius for saying something fresh with a musical phrase that the listener may have heard a thousand times before. Others by their daring, their willingness to push themselves beyond the boundaries of safety - perhaps by choosing an audacious tempo, or by producing some extraordinary and startling tone-color. Anne-Sophie Mutter does all of this and more. Just turned 30, she has been holding the world's music lovers mesmerized for 17 years, since she was "discovered" as a child prodigy by Herbert von Karajan.

I have heard better versions of the music she plays. I listened to this cd once or twice and never had the urge to listen to it again.

Unique interpretations of old chestnuts

While there's no quibbling about the recorded sound: rich, resonant, life-like, Mutter's interpretations are uniquely hers. Liberal use of portamento, extreme pianissimi, etc. But she can make it SO convincing--not least because she's got the technique to carry it off flawlessly. Levine and the VPO are with her every step of the way. Remarkable.
