Title - 'The Club Album - Live from Yellow Lounge'
Artist - Anne-Sophie Mutter
For those not in the classical know, Anne-Sophie Mutter is a German violinist. Supported early in her career by Herbert von Karajan, she has built a strong reputation for championing contemporary music with several works being composed specially for her including by Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutos³awski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, André Previn, and Wolfgang Rihm.
here on The Club Album - Live from Yellow Lounge, DG's iconic artist Anne-Sophie Mutter is breaking new grounds with her new album - and doing it in fine style, trust me! Inspired by the huge success of her first Yellow Lounge in Berlin in 2013, the new album was recorded live at two special Yellow Lounges, which makes for the first ever YL production on tape, 15 years after the concept was introduced.
The events took place on two consecutive nights on 7 and 8 May, 2015 at one of Berlin's hippest venues - Neue Heimat and was filmed in cooperation with ZDF and DEF Media for TV broadcast (later this autumn) and DVD/Blu-ray release. Beyond Ms. Mutters Virtousi, one of DG's rising stars, Mahan Esfahani on harpsichord, and her long-time companion Lambert Orkis were accompanying her.
Anne-Sophie Mutter's playing is incredibly beautiful and well-informed, her taste absolutely sound, even in contemporary music. On The Club Album - Live from Yellow Lounge, Anne-Sophie combines a very real delight in music with a spirit of adventure and an enormous passion for the matter in hand.
Listening to The Club Album - Live from Yellow Lounge, it quickly becomes abundantly clear how perfectly she combines breath and phrase together. It truly seems as if Anne-Sophie can do just about anything musically, and this album personifies that belief ten fold, believe me.
