I have admired the musicianship and performances by Anne-Sophie Mutter for many years. Here is what promises to be a fine concert in Berlin by this outstanding artist: Venue: Philharmonie-Berlin, Large hall Address: Herbert-von-Karajan-Straße 1, 10785 Berlin, Germany The performers are: ANNE-SOPHIE MUTTER, YEFIM BRONFMAN & LYNN HARRELL Date/time: THURSDAY, MAY 19 2016, 8:00 PM Program: Beethoven, Ludwig van Piano Trio No. 7 in B-flat major, op. 97, “Archduke” Tchaikovsky, Peter Ilyich Piano Trio in A minor, op. 50 The three acclaimed soloists listed above join together for piano trios by Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. Anne-Sophie Mutter (violin), Yefim Bronfman (piano) and Lynn Harrell (cello) perform Beethoven’s “Archduke” Trio and Tchaikovsky’s technically demanding Piano Trio in A minor. Anne-Sophie Mutter was born in Rheinfelden in Baden. She embarked on her international career as a soloist in 1976 at the Lucerne Festival and a year later made her Salzburg debut under Herbert von Karajan. Ever since then she has been in equal demand as a soloist and chamber musician, and has given concerts in all the major music centres of Europe, North America and Asia.

Here is Ms. Mutter in the work by Saint Saens, in an arrangement for violin and piano, rather than orchestral accompaniment:
