- Anne-Sophie Mutter (Violin)
Notes & Reviews:
By and large, Karajan’s studio recordings with concerto soloists were not among his most important achievements on disc. This is not to belittle the distinguished artists he accompanied, who included the pianists Dinu Lipatti, Walter Gieseking, Sviatoslav Richter, Geza Anda, Alexis Weissenberg and Yevgeny Kissin, the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich and the violinist Christian Ferras. However, those partnerships rarely extended beyond a single project (sometimes involving several works), with one major exception: the first female German violinist of international standing, Anne-Sophie Mutter. She became his devoted collaborator, their recordings of major violin concertos being made over 11 years.
