Anne-Sophie Mutter portrait

Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mutter Virtuosi
Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mutter Virtuosi
In another of the Edinburgh International Festival Portraits on YouTube, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter talks about music as a social tool, musicians are there to share music with the audience irrespective of cultural heritage and religious beliefs and she feels that music reminds us that we have a soul. Again the portrait lasts just under 5 minutes and is simply Anne-Sophie Mutter talking to camera, and much that she has to say is absorbing and it includes comments on acoustics and helping the audience tune in. You can see the video after the break.

Anne-Sophie Mutter will be performing Vivaldi's Four Seasons at the Usher Hall on 26 August 2015, with her own group, the Mutter Virtuosi, also performing Bach's Concerto for Two Violins and the world premiere of Andre Previn's Nonet (Further information of the festival website).
