I must say,at the outset, that a lot of fine violinists have recorded these pieces so there is no shortage of technically and musically compelling performances to choose from, but this particular recording bears further scrutiny and I feel, should be in everyone's collection, both for its tremondous conviction and its few excesses.Unlike one of the reviewers, I never got the impression at any point in this recital that technique was put first and expression sacrificed in its stead. On the contrary, a few of the musical choices may be perhaps too strong-headed and almost overbearing for some of the music; in particular the tempo changes and agogic accents (accents of duration to make a given note have more expressive importance by being held beyond its "official" length) in the opening movement of the Mozart E minor Sonata strain the limits of the high classic style and lose the long line in favor of expressive detail that need not be so prominently highlighted. This tempo tugging works to much better effect in the atmospheric Debussy Sonata and successfully creates dramatic contrast in the Franck Sonata which also receives heightened contrast with passages, like the end of the Recitativo movement, played with a bare, vibrato-less tone that adds gravitas and a sense of finality to the proceedings. It would be no understatement to say that Mutter has thought these pieces through quite thoroughly, perhaps as much as anyone is capable of - her choices of where to speed things along, hold things back, add high-powered vibrato, or not, thicken the sound or thin it, hold on to certain notes or let them go more freely, all have an intellectually solid foundation and are not flightly, callous, flippant, or capricious.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to be missed for the Mozart alone March 22, 2006
By NL
Format:Audio CD
Other reviewers have commented on Mutter's extraordinary technique and fully thought out interpretive choices on this recital. For me the highlight of the disc is the Mozart E-minor Sonata. This is the only Violin Sonata Mozart worte in the minor key, and given its chronological proximity to the death of his mother, one cannot help but wonder about its biographical significance. In any case, what a profoundly tragic and yet dignified music this is! The first movement is unrelentingly dramatic and contrapuntally ingenious. The second movement has an abundance of sweetness and melancholy that is positively Schubertian. One can argue that in terms of tragic grandeur and expressive profundity, Mozart never surpassed this sonata in any of his later compositions.

Mutter's interpretation of this sonata is stunning. I was totally surprised and initially disturbed by the wealth of accents, rubato and tonal colors that she brought to the piece. The overall tempo was also unusually slow. (What a contrast to another recent recording of the sonata by Hilary Hahn, which was also technically flawless, but interpretively more restrained and "classical".) And yet the more I listened to the performance, the more I come to be persuaded that the treatment was fully appropriate and indeed matches the profound musical utterances inherent in the composition.

We probably will not hear anything like this in a long time. And really, there is no better way to celebrate the 250th birthday of Mozart than listening to it and be moved by again and again by this miraculous music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unparalleled!! October 31, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Mutter's Mozart violin sonata E minor is unparalleled in its emotional depth.

Better than any other recent recordings and even historical recordings by Arthur Grumiaux.

Another works are also excellent.
