For the past four decades Anne-Sophie Mutter has been one of the brightest and most enduring stars of the violin world. Now, 36 years since she made her spectacular stage début at the Lucerne Festival, the lady The Times of London describes as “the undisputed queen of violin playing” is finally coming to Hong Kong to make her much anticipated début with the HK Phil. In a programme which gives us not one but two marvellous violin concertos – including one written specially for her by the American composer Sebastian Currier – come and be dazzled by her “supercharged sound” (Washington Post) and admire violin playing “which is beauty itself” (BBC Music Magazine).
