"Back to the Future" is the theme Anne-Sophie Mutter has bestowed upon her five-part concert series for the year 2000. With reflection on both the past and the Future, she presented concert-goers with a kaleidoscope of 20th century violin history. Anne-Sophie Mutterhas been performing together with Kurt Masur, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra (the London Symphony Orchestra in London, Frankfurt and Stuttgart) and her chamber music partners Lambert Orkis (piano) and Daniel Müller-Schott (cello).
