On October 28, Anne-Sophie Mutter will release Dvořák’s Violin Concerto, conducted by Manfred Honeck, on Deutsche Grammophon. The renowned violinist's debut recording of Dvořák’s Concerto marks her first album with the Berlin Philharmonic in 30 years. Mutter made her first album for DG in 1978 with the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan, and has since recorded over 40 albums for the Yellow Label.

'I have played Dvořák’s Violin Concerto for many years and have always felt at home in its deeply melancholic melodies and with its technical challenges,' said Mutter. 'These would have been reasons enough for me to record it decades ago. But I was always sidetracked and there always seemed to be other pieces which needed my attention more. Recording this wonderful concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic and Manfred Honeck, just months after our special concerts recorded for the Digital Concert Hall, comes at the perfect moment in time.'

Also included on the album are Dvořák’s Mazurek, Op 49, the Romance for violin and orchestra, Op 11, and the seventh Humoresque, Op 101, for violin and piano.

You can watch Mutter's Dvořák video journal at myDG, giving insights into the recording process.
