Overview

To mark the bicentenary (February 3, 2009) of Mendelssohn’s birth, Anne-Sophie Mutter has recorded a very special tribute combining symphonic music and chamber works. This unique homage to Mendelssohn includes a CD & DVD, both of which feature complete performances of the repertory. The DVD also includes “Encounters with Mendelssohn” –a mini-documentary about the composer and Mutter’s performances of his works.

Mutter is joined by Kurt Masur and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig (Mendelssohn’s orchestra) for the concerto, and by André Previn and Lynn Harrell on the chamber works. This unique program pairs works that are rarely heard together. From the Label

Editorial Reviews

New York Times - Vivien Schweitzer
Ms. Mutter leaves little doubt of her current enthusiasm for Mendelssohn in an excellent new recording.... The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra...plays with a transparency that highlights the composer’s classicism. Ms. Mutter performs with a fervent warmth that results in a particularly vital and glowing rendition of the second movement.
The Times (U.K.) - Geoff Brown
You can feel the adrenalin pumping [in the concerto].... We always know who the star is, and it’s the German superstar, pirouetting nicely with a burnished tone, nervous rhythms, a furious finale and a vibrating, skylark andante.
