Violin Concerto (+ Brahms: Violin Concerto) [Masters]
Top Customer Reviews
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.
