Anne-Sophie Mutter’s mentor Herbert von Karajan called her “the greatest musical prodigy since the young Menuhin”. In this deluxe hardcover book are presented their earliest solo concerto recordings, beginning with Mozart from 1978, when the violinist who was just 14 played with “... the confidence and assurance of a seasoned professional” (Gramophone). The Beethoven (“rapt and poetic” – Gramophone) followed the next year; Bruch and Mendelssohn in 1980. All three albums immediately won universal acclaim with the young violinist praised for her assured and lyrically fresh tone while Karajan’s Berlin forces provided superlative musical support.

This deluxe hardback 3-CD + Blu-ray Audio edition celebrates the extraordinary early recordings of Anne-Sophie Mutter accompanied by Herbert von Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker.

The Blu-ray Audio Disc presents new 2.0 24bit/192kHz remasters of the classic analogue Mozart and Beethoven albums, while the digital recording of the Mendelssohn and Bruch concertos is included at 16bit quality.

Includes a 60-page booklet (German, English and French) with new notes by Jürgen Kesting, and a recollection by Karajan himself of the young violinist.
