Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Felix Mendelssohn (-Bartholdy) (1809-1847), one of the treasures of the classical music world. I cannot think of a more fitting tribute that this album featuring Anne-Sophie Mutter. She brings a level of energy and vitality to Mendelssohn's work I've rarely heard before. Her virtuosity with the violin is truly without peer and sound quality is exceptional. This stunning CD/DVD set should make any fan or Mutter's or lover of Mendelssohn very happy.

You are buying this for the music, but the mini-documentary about the composer and Mutter's performance is a real treat as well. Don't wait -- once the lovely limited edition run sells out, it will revert a standard jewel packaging. I find something different to enjoy with every new listen.

These Mendelssohn pieces are major works that Mutter clearly masters and presents in interesting ways. The Violin Concerto, for instance, she takes at quite a fast pace, but still holds its shape. In partnership with Lynn Harrell and Andre Previn, she does a lovely job with the Trio No. 1.

A point of concern is Mutter's overwhelming vibrato and excessive "expression." To my ear, she now makes a similar over-done tone that Perlman came to rely on in his fifties. Anyone else out there hearing this?
This edition contains both a cd and a dvd. The dvd seems to have a very slight synchonization problem that I found disconcerting. As a violinist, I am interested in seeing how Mutter bows, but couldn't quite do it with this technical glitch.
My last quibble is the package, which is all pink and mauve and flower petals. Blame it on the marketing department, not Mutter, but it doesn't square with the artistic strength either of Mendelssohn or of these players.

I heard the Piano Trio from this disc on the 103.7 the Mountain radio station and got totally excited and ordered it the same day. I was positively surprised to learn that both a CD and a 5.0 DTS DVD surround disc was included for just under $14. The Mendelsohn Violin concert is "OK" from a musical perspective, but not on par with several of Mutters past recording - especially compared to Beethovens Violin concert with Berliner Philarmonics under Karajan. However, it was truly entertainming to watch the DVD and listen to the DTS 5.0 surround recording while she was playing. The REAL DISAPPOINTMENT however was the sound quality of the Piano Trio. It is recorded in a smaller concert hall, and the sound is flat and indistinct to the point that I couldn't bear to listen to more than half of the first movement. Granted that I am a sound engineer by trade, but in my mind, it is unbelievable that Deutsche Grammofon would even consider putting their label on a disc with level of quality. I would return the disc if I could...

With an air of Hollywood glamour, Mutter brings Mendelssohn to the catwalk. She's the only violinist who can pull the image off, and more power to her. Even as her interpretations have grown more eccentric an self-serving, Mutter remains charismatic, like Nigel Kennedy as he veers into unknown territory with a horde of fans in tow. So as not to give aid and comfort to the fuddy-duddies, I try to be positive about Mutter's desire to make standard works sound new again. No concerto for the violin plays itself as automatically as the Mendelssohn, and yet it never loses its freshness. Mutter doesn't put the score through its paces the way she tested the limits of, say, the Beethoven concerto, and she keeps the self-serving side tamped down. Therefore, this is a magnetic reading with lots of interest from bar to bar.

DG provides smooth sound and a microphone placement that guarantees Mutter her close-up at all times. Her favorite conductor is Masur, although his steady workmanlike accompaniments are a far cry from her wanderings off the ranch. He seems content to follow passively in her wake when she suddenly slows down or lingers over an ear-ravishing phrase. Aside from a handful of Russians on the scene today, I don't think any rivals can match Mutter's glowing, powerful tone. she can make the violin speak in a dozen enticing voices. No one should approach this recording expect anything less than a star turn, but on its own terms this is an exciting reading. The light-as-air finale is especially winning. Souffle for dessert.

Lynn Harrell, a powerhouse cellist, and Mutter's former husband Andre Previn enter for Mendelssohn's Piano Trio no. 1. I had trepidations that Previn would drag down the piano part, but no worries - this is a beautifully shaped and gorgeously recorded account.

I really like the package of a Cd and DVD for the purchaser. I know most of us are primarily interested in "the music". The inclusion of the DVD has a "cool" factor that simply cannot be ignored. Watching Ms. Mutter play the music gave me a sense of the entire project (a depth) that I think I would have missed if I'd only heard the cd.

Ok - She is very easy on the eyes. Still, watching her in concert gave me an insight into the music that the cd simply could not...her intensity and concentration while playing is absolutely clear! I totally disagree with some reviewers that she looks "wooden". Personally, when I attend a concert, I want the performer to give me his/her all. I think that is what is at work in the video. She is playing with her audience in mind...giving the music her entire being. Seriously, this is what I am seeing here...and I am captivated.

Finally, I can find no flaw in the sound quality. Some of the reviewers have claimed that the sound quality is low??? I own a serious home entertainment system in my living room and a "good" system for listening in my office. I have played both the CD and DVD on both and the sound is excellent.

If you're wondering whether this CD/DVD is worth your entertainment dollar, I believe it most certainly is...the documentary is fantastic. This is worthy of a 5 star rating.
