CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Sunday, March 4, 2018 | 2 PM

Anne-Sophie Mutter, Violin
Lambert Orkis, Piano

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Anne-Sophie Mutter has been called the “undisputed queen of the violin-playing” (The Times, London). Mutter, however, is not content merely sitting on the throne. She is constantly stretching her repertoire, refining her interpretations of classics and championing new music. The Chaconne from Bach's Violin Partita No. 2 is a dark-toned masterpiece of great profundity, while Brahms’s Violin Sonata No. 3 burns with passion. Mutter also gives the New York premiere of a work by André Previn, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall.
