Format: Audio CD
Anne-Sophie Mutter recently said in an interview that she would retire once she could add nothing new to the repertoire. Judged from this recording, she is far from retiring any time soon.

The Sueddeutsche Zeitung hit it right on the nail: "fiery passion as well as flawless control". The emotional charge that Mutter managed in these sonatas are at least on a par with the recently-resurfaced recording of Ferras-Barbizet Christian Ferras plays Violin Sonatas, yet she manages to smooth out the "rough edges" and put a more feminine feel on the violin tone. Bravo for making the violin sing like a soprano. The way she played with the high notes in the G-major sonata, left them in a reverie, and then just parked them up there without letting them fall has only been achieved by very few violinists.

Anne-Sophie Mutter does not disappoint in these fine performances, her characteristic fire really bringing the music to life without any hint of not being in full control. And regular collaborator Lambert Orkis provides solid support.

If you enjoy these wonderful works by Brahms, you should hear this album. An excellent additional choice is by Kyung Wha Chung and Peter Frankl: Brahms - Violin Sonatas. Or you could just get both.
