I like her playing but did not like the music that she played much (Brahms violin sonatas).

Love Anna-Sophie Mutter, loved this program. The encore pieces were really fun too....It Ain't Necessarily So, Hungarian Rhapsody, and a piece by Andre Previn.

Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis discuss the Brahms violin sonatas at her website.

Description

Described in a _Strings _profile as a “Goddess with a Gift,” the elegant, dynamic and accomplished violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter returns to Washington to perform the complete Brahms Violin Sonatas (Nos. 1, 2 and 3) at an afternoon recital with her frequent musical partner, pianist Lambert Orkis.

Born in Rheinfelden, Germany, Mutter launched her international career at age 13 at the 1976 Lucerne Festival, performing the following year as a soloist in Salzburg under the direction of conductor Herbert von Karajan, who became her mentor. Since then, Mutter has performed in all the major music centers of Europe, the United States and Asia.

Mutter’s vast discography of over 60 recordings includes all of Mozart’s major compositions for violin, recorded in honor of the composer’s 250th birthday. Mutter’s recording of Brahms’ Violin Sonatas performed together with Lambert Orkis was released in March 2010.

Mutter’s recordings have won numerous prizes, including the German Record Prize, the Record Academy Prize, the Grand Prix du Disque, the International Record Prize, Le Monde de la Musique, Record Geijutsu, and several Grammys. Mutter established the Rudolf Eberle Foundation in1987, which together with the Friends of Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation supports young talented musicians around the world.
