Notes & Reviews:
Anne-Sophie Mutters Beethoven Concerto was recorded live at the final subscription concerts of Kurt Masurs long tenure as the New York Philharmonic's music director. The beautifully played orchestral part is a tribute to his leadership. Mutter plays with a silken tone and astonishing technical command of her instrument--absolute ease in the stratospheric tessitura of the solo part, and an amazing array of microdynamic adjustments that display the infinite variety of pianissimos at her command.
