Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter made her debut with the National Symphony Orchestra under Mstislav Rostropovich when she was just 17 years old. She rejoins the orchestra as guest soloist for the NSO's 2012 Season Opening Ball Concert, performing both Mendelssohn's famous E-minor Violin Concerto, and Sarasate's Carmen Fantasy under Music Director Christoph Eschenbach. The concert will be broadcast by Classical WETA Wednesday morning, October 3rd at 11:00 am.
Earlier, Ms. Mutter spoke by phone from Germany with Classical WETA's Deb Lamberton, who asked the world-class violinist about her take on performing two such well-known works.
