On this recording, Anne-Sophie Mutter, accompanied by pianist Lambert Orkis, shares her up-to-date thoughts on the Brahms Violin Sonatas that have been central to her repertoire from the start of her career. These sonatas are among the most intense, emotionally penetrating works composed for the violin. Second only to her solo repertoire, chamber music has been for Anne-Sophie Mutter an on-going passion and commitment. Her communion with Orkis' pianism defines musical collaboration at its zenith. Recent reviews of concerts where she performed these pieces are excellent and will certainly make for an outstanding recording: "Her Brahms playing has acquired new maturity and intimacy", writes the Neue Zurcher Zeitung. "The dreamlike ending of the G major Sonata even took one's breath away for a moment."
