Hand it to violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter. At an age when many performers are content to rest on their laurels, she has stepped out into new territory, forming Mutter's Virtuosi, an ensemble of young players connected to her Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation. Moreover, she has tentatively incorporated influences from the historical performance movement, although she does not play an early violin in the mostly Baroque and Classical-era program here. Sample the fierce attacks in the Vivaldi Concerto for three violins and orchestra, RV 551, or, for that matter, the Four Seasons movement that is included as one of the encores. Leading Mutter's Virtuosi from the violin, she draws a nice contrast between Vivaldi and Bach; the latter, even as influenced as he was by the Italian manner, never adopted the full-scale sense of operatic drama. Mutter also leads the group in the intriguing Nonet by André Previn, her ex-husband, which, while not a Baroque work, has a neoclassical sense of symmetry with its two string groups pivoting on a single double bass. Among the three encores are also two pieces by John Williams, arranged for Mutter by the composer. The program proper ends with the Violin Concerto No. 2 in A major, Op. 5, of Joseph Boulogne (or Bologne), Chevalier de Saint-Georges, the hot Caribbean-French composer of Mozart's day; Mutter delivers probably the best available performance of this rather grand work. One might take issue with this or that here, but the plain fact is that the album, taken from a live 2022 performance at the Vienna Musikverein, is a great deal of fun and shows this great violinist in fine form as she passes on her secrets to young followers. This album made classical best-seller charts in the late autumn of 2023.
