Anne Sophie Mutter Tickets for Sale
Anne-Sophie Mutter, born in Rheinfelden in southern Germany, and has become one of the most sought after and admired violinists. She began playing the violin at age five and soon enjoyed considerable success in several competitions, most notably the Lucern Festival in 1976. This drew the attention of Maestro Karajan and she auditioned for him in Berlin shortly after, at the age of 13. Anne-Sophie Mutter has more and more turned her attention to contemporary music, ranging from Strawinsky, Berg and Bartók to more recent composers such as Witold Lutoslawski, Krzysztof Penderecki, Norbert Moret and Wolfgang Rihm, after some years of focusing mainly on the canonized works of the german central collection. Anne-Sophie Mutter made her first recording for Deutsche Grammophon at the age of 14. For her numerous recordings she has received, among other awards, the Deutscher Schallplattenpreis in Germany, Record Academy Prize in Japan, Grand Prix Du Disque in France, and the International Record Critics Award in New York, as well as several Grammy's. Anne-Sophie Mutter set up the Rudolf Eberle Foundation in 1987 to promote young string players throughout Europe.
In 1997 this Foundation became associated with the Circle of Friends of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation in Munich, which is active worldwide. In the course of the last few years Anne-Sophie Mutter has been honored with high merits such as the German Federal Cross of Merit first class and the Austrian Cross of Honour for Science and the Arts. In June 2003, the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Research and Art presented her the award "Pro Meritis Scientiae Litterarum". Anne-Sophie Mutter's concert calendar for 2004 exposes her wide range of musical activities such as introducting a host of new works to her audiences besides performing the standard selection of great masterpieces. This year she will also be placing her popularity in the service of benefit projects and promoting the new musical generation.
