Mutter does it again
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Anne-Sophie Mutter is, in my opinion, the greatest living violinist. With her warm, singing tone and technical virtuosity, everything this brilliant woman touches with the violin, she makes gold. Not that Beethoven's Violin/Triple concertos need the help; they are legendary works in their own right. But Mutter performs with staggering skill. This is an essential recording. Period."
Great music here!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Wonderful, "desert island" recordings. I don't even know whom to praise first! Anne-Sophie Mutter's beautiful engaging, sensual and powerful violin playing is given energetic, warm and spirited support by the greatest maestro ever - Herbert von Karajan. On triple concerto they are joined by the stellar company of Yo-Yo Ma and Mark Zeltser, creating the only competition to Oistrach and Rostropovich (also with Maestro Karajan, on EMI). The whole experience is astonishing, Beethoven's music blazes through the speakers with incredible poignancy and splendor. In liner notes Anne-Sophie Mutter explains that through innovation and revolutionary vision Beethoven created the greatest violin concerto in history. Preferences may vary, but you will agree with her after listening to this incredible album. Thanks to DG for issuing these great performances in a single set, graced by a picture of lovely and charismatic Ms. Mutter."
Great! Great! Great!

"The first recording I ever heard of the Beethoven violin concerto was by Perlman. It too is very good, but my taste in music had not really developed. I thought it was too long and that it was boring. Then I saw this CD yesterday at a used bookstore. I had never heard the triple so I really bought it for that. I listened to it first and it is really great. A combination of Ma and Mutter can't go wrong. But, then I listened to the Violin concerto. If you read the little thing inside the CD Mutter says it's the greates violin concerto, well I don't know about greates but it is incredible. I then went back and listened to Perlmans. Mutter's is better in my oppinion. This is a must buy!"
