San Francisco Performances presents:

Anne-Sophie Mutter, violin with Lambert Orkis, piano

Sunday, March 26, 7:00pm-9:00pm, San Francisco


The violin's expressive and technical range is on full display in Anne-Sophie Mutter's rich and varied program. The celebrated German violinist-the "undisputed queen of the violin" (The Times of London)-returns to San Francisco for one performance only.

Anne-Sophie Mutter has been among the great violin virtuosos of our times for four decades - the year 2016 marks the 40-year anniversary of her debut at the age of 13 at the Lucerne Festival on August 23, 1976. One year later, she performed at the Salzburg Whitsun Concerts under Herbert von Karajan's baton. The four-time Grammy(R) Award winner gives concerts in all the world's important music centres - focusing equally on the performance of traditional compositions and on the future of music: so far she has given world premieres of 24 works - Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutoslawski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir Andre Previn and Wolfgang Rihm have all composed for Anne-Sophie Mutter. Furthermore, she dedicates herself to numerous benefit projects and to supporting tomorrow's musical elite.
