Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter to Perform with Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, 9/28
When Anne-Sophie Mutter plays, you listen" (The Times). Few musicians have enjoyed a career as long and prolific as violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, who has captivated audiences all over the world with her profound recordings and enlightening live performances. Now the "undisputed queen of violin-playing" (as heralded by The Times) makes her Cincinnati debut opening the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra's 2013-2014 season. On Saturday, September 28 at 8 p.m., Ms. Mutter hits the Music Hall stage, performing two beloved works by Dvorák: the Romance for Violin as well as his Violin Concerto. (Ms. Mutter recently recorded the Violin Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic; the disc is expected to be released in the coming months.) The CSO will also perform Purcell's Chacony and Elgar's Enigma Variations under guest conductor Ignat Solzhenitsyn.
"I have played Dvo?ák's Violin Concerto for many years and have always felt at home in its deeply melancholic melodies and with its technical challenges," notes Ms. Mutter.
