Notes & Reviews:

With this special 2-CD collection - including world-premiere recordings of Previn and Penderecki and new recordings of Ravel and Massenet - Anne- Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis mark 25 years of "a level of artistic partnership that is rare, even in the highest echelons of concert performance" by Seattle Times.

The celebrated violinist says: "Meeting Lambert was a stroke of luck for me. It quickly became clear how perfectly we breathe and phrase together. With Lambert I can do anything."

It was in December 1988 that Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis gave their first joint recitals in America and immediately sensed that they shared a mutually sympathetic way of thinking about music which neither felt would ever change. For Anne-Sophie Mutter such an affinity is "either there or it isn't. It's hard to put it into words (... )"

Ever since the two of them have explored the musical worlds of many different composers in a wonderful artistic partnership.

For Lambert Orkis, the question of how such a partnership between artists can survive for so long without even the faintest murmur of disagreement is very simple: "We like one another, we like each other's playing and we like each other's company. This makes things a lot simpler, because we work very hard.

"Of course, we talk to each other, but we say very little about interpretation. We talk about politics and religion or about her dogs and my cats - and we never argue."

And about Anne-Sophie Mutter he says: "Her playing is incredibly beautiful and well-informed, her taste absolutely sound, even in contemporary music. Anne-Sophie combines a very real delight in music with a spirit of adventure and an enormous passion for the matter in hand."

With 40 minutes of new music, which she will be featuring on her tour concerts, and some of her most famous encores this album is a must-have for all Anne-Sophie Mutter fans.

Gramophone Magazine, August 2014
It is possible to say that Orkis finishes Mutter's sentences and that they play as a single voice...it is undeniable that this is a disc of strong identity and integrity.
