Anne-Sophie Mutter: Bio

Anne-Sophie Mutter was born in Rheinfelden in Baden. She embarked on her international career as a soloist in 1976 at the Lucerne Festival and a year later made her Salzburg debut at the Whitsun Concerts under Herbert von Karajan.

Ever since then she has been one of the greatest violin virtuosos of our time. Anne-Sophie Mutter has performed concerts in all the major music centers of Europe, the USA and Asia. In addition to performing major traditional works she has continually treated her audiences to new and innovative repertoires: chamber music and orchestral works presented on equal terms. She also uses her popularity for charity projects and supports the development of young, exceptionally talented musicians.

In October 2013, Anne-Sophie Mutter will be inducted into the American Academy of Arts & Sciences as a Foreign Honorary Member. In January, she was distinguished with the medal of the Lutoslawski Society (Warsaw). In 2012, Anne-Sophie Mutter was bestowed the Atlantic Council's Distinguished Aristic Leadership Award. She was awarded the Brahms prize, the Erich-Fromm prize and the Gustav-Adolf prize for her social involvement in 2011. In 2010 the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim awarded her an honorary doctorate; in 2009 she was distinguished with the European St. Ullrichs prize as well as the Cristobal Gabarron award. In 2008, Anne-Sophie Mutter was bestowed the International Ernst von Siemens Music prize and the Leipzig Mendelssohn prize. The violinist has received the Großes Bundesverdienstkreuz [Grand Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany], the French Order of the Legion of Honour, the Bavarian Order of Honour, the Großes Österreichisches Ehrenzeichen [Grand

"Yellow Lounge is a unique concept," said Mutter after her first performance. "It introduces young people to great music, in intimate settings that really bring performers and listeners close together." May's event lived up to the Yellow Lounge trademarks of a relaxed and unorthodox crowd for classical music, and a deeply intense, up-close-and-personal listening experience.

On stage with Mutter for the concert were her longtime accompanist Lambert Orkis, the Mutter Virtuosi – a hand-picked ensemble of young alumni of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation – and star harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, whose solo debut with Deutsche Grammophon was released this past May. The program spanned three centuries of classical music – from Bach and Vivaldi to Gershwin and John Williams – and was conceived by the violinist exclusively for this Yellow Lounge event and the accompanying album.
