Anne-Sophie Mutter, Boston Symphony Orchestra, John Williams – Violin Concerto No. 2 (180g Vinyl LP)


Following the huge success of John Williams – The Berlin Concert, which topped the German pop charts earlier in 2022, Deutsche Grammophon present the world premiere recording of John Williams’ Violin Concerto No. 2. The work was written for and recorded by the venerated composer’s friend and frequent collaborator Anne-Sophie Mutter. Her impassioned performance was given with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Williams, who celebrated his 90th birthday on February 8. Williams recalls, “When Anne-Sophie invited me to compose a concerto for her, I thought it was a wonderful opportunity to write for one of the world’s greatest artists. It was also a challenge, of course, because there are so many great violin concertos in the repertoire.”
