• Perspectives: Anne-Sophie Mutter

  • Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter's passionate commitment to artistic excellence and dedication to the growth of classical music are core themes in her Perspectives series. In addition to her relationships with great orchestras, conductors, and soloists, Ms. Mutter has invested in the future of classical music by championing new violin repertoire and promoting young musicians through the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation.

    Audiences have wonderful opportunities to see Ms. Mutter in a variety of performances throughout the season, beginning as soloist with Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker at Carnegie Hall’s Opening Night Gala. She also performs with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Cristian Măcelaru. Her other collaborators range from longtime favorites—including pianists Yefim Bronfman and Lambert Orkis, and cellist Lynn Harrell—to some of the finest training ensembles, such as the Mutter Virtuosi and the New World Symphony.
