Anne-Sophie Mutter by Stefan Höderath / DG
Anne-Sophie Mutter’s mastery of a vast range of repertoire makes this a recital essential. She performs one of Mozart’s finest violin sonatas, a work flowing with melody and a central Andante that charts adventurous harmonic territory. Always one to push the harmonic envelope, Debussy’s sonata is marvelously inventive and full of life, while Poulenc’s is laced with tragedy, especially in its grieving outer movements. Passionately committed to the music of our time, Mutter is also joined by close collaborators for the premieres of two works by award-winning composers.

Debussy’s Violin Sonata 

Debussy was planning to write a cycle of six sonatas for various instruments, but failing health forced him to conclude the project with what proved to be his final work, the Violin Sonata. Despite the circumstances, its three brief movements are marvelously inventive and full of life. Debussy summons a world of emotion: The sonata’s opening pages move from the melancholy to the tempestuous, the jaunty central movement dances, and the exuberant finale soars to ecstatic heights.
