If you haven't heard these recordings, you have a nice surprise ahead of you. The Mendelssohn dates from 1981 and the Brahms from 1982. Because of the recording dates, you've got the young protege, Anne-Sophie Mutter, firmly under the leadership of the old master, Herbert von Karajan, with that marvelous orchestra to draw on for generous support.

Ms. Mutter has never been closer since then to the gentler ways of performing these pieces as she is here. The accompaniment is very well balanced and perfectly complements the solos.

Being used to a lot of fire from Ms. Mutter, some may complain that these performances aren't sizzling enough.

I found that her interpretation of Mendelssohn was delightfully restrained which allowed for the heavenly aspects of the piece to emerge. I was equally pleased with her Brahms where her violin seems to literally sing to us in a beautiful human voice. Beneath the surface, you can feel the controlled power of Mutter, von Karajan, and the Berlin Philharmonic. It's like watching heavyweights delicately dancing ballet to exquisite chamber music. You know there's the power there to blow us away, but that they want to enrapture us instead.

This recording will appeal most to people who like to hear classic pieces of the repertoire performed in ways that aren't the typical fare.

I enjoy the youthful performance of Felix Mendelssohn's (1809-1847) Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in E minor. The violinist is the protégée, Ms Anne-Sophie Mutter (b1963). The conductor is Herr Doktor Herbert von Karajan (1908-1989). This relationship has proven to be an extremely important one for the world of classical music. This performance balances youth and maturity. If Mendelssohn's Concerto is not the happiest piece of violin music, I don't know what is. The notes in this package are simply grand. Ms Constantin Floros writes that the popularity of Mendelssohn's piece is the result of "many factors", citing "a potency and accessibility of its themes, a happy blend of cantabile melody and virtuosity, of expressiveness and brilliance, of simplicity and refinement, as well as the subtlety of the atmospheric moods." Brief biographies of Ms Mutter and Herr Doktor von Karajan are also supplied. Even though they are short, the bios manage to overwhelm me with the accomplishments. If you are interested in a very accessible performance by a pair of exceptional figures in the classical music scene, this CD will interest you.

I must say that this recording surely has something magic about it. But I wouldn't really go as far as the previous reviewer, to say it's sexual - it's far more than earthly pleasures - it's ethereal. You can just sit back in your sofa, close your eyes and feel that there's something more than just the music you hear in this recording. Sensitive, intensitive, and sensual, sometimes on the border to vulnerability, is the playing from especially Ms Mutter. Karajan shows his great experience by not letting his own conducting catch too much of your attention - he is simply responsive and supportive to Ms Mutter's young and fresh-sounding playing. Need I then say that this is beautiful? Happily, this is valid for both these lovely concertos.
The Mendelssohn start with lots of fire and brilliance from both Ms Mutter and Karajan in the first movement, leading through the second movement, the Andante, which is utterly moving and suffocatingly beautiful here, to a playfully vivacious Allegretto/Allegro.
The Brahms concerto is no less good. The first allegro, a part balancing between solemnity and violent, tragic explosions, through parts of wondering and restfullness, is showing every possible variation of emotion called for - just listen to Ms Mutters lovely intense vibrato after about 11 ½ minute. Ms Mutter definately shows that she understands the intrinsical values of this concerto - If this first part doesn't make you understand what's etherical in music, nothing probably ever will. The following adagio is extremely beautiful, the oftenly dominating oboepart being put aside here by Ms Mutters lovely playing, which grows for every bar played. The last allegro is played just as the name indicates, non troppo vivace - not to playful, sounding like an almost serious dance melody.
