Anne-Sophie Mutter this year celebrates her 40th anniversary at Lucerne Festival. In 1976, at the age of 13, she began her career as part of the “Young Artists“ series; one year later she performed as a soloist at the Salzburg Whitsun Festival under Herbert von Karajan. Ever since then she has concertized around the world in all the leading music centers.
Anne-Sophie Mutter’s playlist in Deutsche Grammophon’s Apple Music Curator Space offers a broad sample of her recordings with the label and in so doing acts as a platform for discovery. It not only presents her personal interpretations of the great violin masterpieces (all are represented), but also takes the listener on an astonishing journey of discovery across the violin repertoire. Anne-Sophie Mutter has always been as much an interpreter of the great works as an explorer of the new, frequently being the inspiration for new compositions.
Both aspects are reflected in this overview. From Bach, Beethoven and Mozart through Sibelius, Ravel and Gershwin to Bartók, Lutoslawski and many more, both obvious and sometimes unlikely composers are to be found. The playlist is just the beginning. Make sure you look behind the individual tracks to listen to the full works (where applicable), embedded in the albums from which the tracks are taken. And within those albums you will also find further works that for lack of space could sadly not be represented in this playlist.
On June 9 Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert played a benefit concert in favor of SOS Children‘s Villages in Syria. The tense security situation has affected the lives of all Syrians since the conflict started. Children in Syria today need protection more than ever – please join us in helping them!

In May 2015 Anne-Sophie Mutter put her noble, impressively named “Lord Dunn-Raven” Stradivarius through more than ist usual paces. For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin...
