Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

There are many excellent recordings of Mozart's Violin Sonatas on disc to choose from, but Anne-Sophie Mutter's interpretations rise quickly to the top. Her approach is certainly closer to "old fashioned" than "authentic instrument." She sings the lines as if they were arias and uses vibrato liberally to emphasize the unwritten texts. Her use of dynamics can be extreme, from a soft murmur to a full-blooded cry. There is a sense of warmth and even rapture in some of the slow movements that is absent from most of the "authentic" recordings. Mutter's vigorous approach to the allegros captures attention. Her great technique is most welcome in the formality of the menuettos. Lambert Orkis's piano accompaniments are handsome and supportive throughout, and his work as a fortepianist pays off well. He has an ingratiating touch and really shines in K. 454 and K. 481, where the piano is given equal footing with the violin. There are almost four-and-a-half hours of music here, and all of it is beautifully performed. --Robert Levine

5.0 out of 5 stars Best ever. November 12, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Recently I compared three new mozart violine sonata recordings (Hhilary Hahn, Anne Sophie Mutter, Rachel Podger). I also compared these recording to my favorite Grumiaux's.

Until recently, I was not a great fan of ASM or Hilary Hahn. I was rather a enthusiastic fan of Podger and Manze (I have all of Manze's and most of Podger's).

But I have to confess that Mozart by authentic appoach and fresh young Hahn's approach did not move my heart at all.

Mutter's Mozart stirred and moved my heart so intensely that I could'nt do anything when hearing the music.

Mutter's Mozart may be odd to the listener who is familiar to authentic approach or Grumiax's gracious but too velvety approach. But her Mozart has enormous emotional power. Her playing sounds like opera aria containing various emotions and various stories. She sometimes whispers, sometimes sobs and sometimes crys (esp. No. 304 although I prefer Mutter's Berlin Recital recording)

I strongly recommend this recording. It's not a background music like many recent recordings. It's a real music that can heal our souls.

When Anne-Sophie Mutter and Lambert Orkis were in Boston last fall, I attended the concert that featured some of Mozart's violin sonatas from these recordings. While I enjoyed the immediacy of the live performance, I felt that Ms. Mutter tended to overwhelm Mr. Orkis both in volume and style. That was a shame because the piano parts in Mozart's violin sonatas are always at least as important as the violin parts. Having been a little disappointed, I was, however, wowed during the encores when suddenly a balance appeared. Ms. Mutter was quieter and more restrained and Mr. Orkis seemed less constrained. It was magical.

Thus encouraged, I bought a copy of this CD set, and both performers graciously autographed it.

On arriving home and turning the music on, I was stunned! This was much better music than I had just heard, even during the encores.

I don't recall ever enjoying a recording more than a live concert of the same music by the same performers, but there's no comparison in this case. Both Ms. Mutter and Mr. Orkis soar enthusiastically . . . while also retreating tactfully and touchingly where that's appropriate. The balance between the two performers is almost perfect.

Some people criticize Ms. Mutter for putting too much passion and personal style into classical works. In this case, there's a bit of restraint in delivering that passion and style that takes Mozart from being a composer from a prior century and transforms his music into a rewarding emotional presence now. The exuberance of his genius seems to flow from both performers as they provide a modern (but not too modern) interpretation of this exceptional music.

I find myself listening with new understanding to these sonatas virtually every day.

For Anne Sophie-Mutter fans, there's no doubt that this is one of her top five recordings. If you don't own it, you've missed a treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mozart played by Mutter a must! January 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This set of CD's is a must buy for anybody who is a fan of Mozart's music and/or a fan of Anne-Sophie Mutter's playing. The greatest moments of these sonatas by Mozart happen in the slow movements where Mozart is at his most profound. Ms. Mutter and her pianist Lambert Orkis take these movements to heart, providing performances which are stunning to say the least. In Mozart's music not a note is out of place, and in these performances every note is handled with great care.

Anne-Sophie Mutter burst on to world stage performing Mozart's music. She is known for her interpretations of his music. Ms. Mutter adds considerably to that reputation with this set of recordings. Mozart's music is beautiful and Ms. Mutter's playing is beautiful. You cannot go wrong with this set of CD's!

5.0 out of 5 stars divine gift January 1, 2007
By NL
Format:Audio CD
First of all, it must be said that these are unjustly neglected masterpieces. The truth is that rarely does one hear any of the Mozart violin sonatas performed in recitals. Virtuosos don't program them because they are not considered technically challenging. On the other hand, the "authentic performance" trend has tended to straitjacket these pieces and made the playing pale and bland. That Anne-Sophie Mutter, perhaps the foremost violin virtuoso of our age, has decided to play and record 16 of these masterpieces is something to be grateful for. That she is fully in tune with the élan and dramatic potential of these pieces is simply divine fortune. Her approach can only be characterized as operatic, in the good sense of the word. Listening to these performances is akin to listening to a masterful story teller giving us fresh versions of long familiar tales. All in all, the best gift one could have hoped for in this Mozart anniversary year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heavenly twins November 9, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What a superb duo of two great artists. Orkis couls have easily been dominated by Mutter's great power & authority but both artists combine in an ideal "give & take". These are cerebral performances but there is plenty of visceral excitement. The nuances of phrasing & dynamics deliver new insights into the music. This is a set that all Mozart lovers should have in the front of their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Near-speechless. January 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I can actually say very little about this album, except that it is excellent! Anne-Sophie Mutter is famous for her Mozart, and this recording is a must for anyone who loves his music. All the violin sonate are at least interesting, and they run the gamut from entertaining to profound. Some of the later ones seem, to me, to foreshadow Beethoven. No music lover should hesitate to buy this album!
