It's Anne Sophie time!!!
The highlight of the evening is definitely the classic Anne-Sophie's fans' favorite Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Can't believe I was able to finally hear her live playing this piece. Such concentration Such power. What makes the evening even more special is the presence of The Trondheim Soloists, an ensemble group who's known long as Mutter's chamber music proud partner and of course has a world-renowned fame on their own. It fits. The Trondheim Soloists are also Mutter's partner in the making of her now iconic album of Vivaldi's Four Seasons.
It's not all Vivaldi. The first part of the concert is dedicated to the music of Previn, Mutter long-time musical and ex-love partner. A renowned composer on his own, his Concert No. 2 for Violin and String Orchestra was premiered that night. Already a dedicate to Mutter, the piece serves as a usual subtle, humble composition of Previn as we know. It's light, yet technically should be played at virtuoso level. Very interesting. Opened with Britten's Simple Symphony No. 4, the concert worked perfectly, regardless of the difference in music style and time of both parts of the concert.
