Acclaimed violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter is the soloist and leader of the Mutter Virtuosi, an ensemble of young students and professional string players who are alumni of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. This celebration of daring string writing features the US premiere of André Previn’s Violin Concerto No. 2. The program concludes with The Four Seasons, Vivaldi’s set of violin concertos offering vivid depictions of bird song, summer storms, hunting horns, barking dogs, and slippery ice.
The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
