Global star violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and pianist Lambert Orkis will perform an all-Beethoven recital, at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 21, 2020, at the Folly Theater (300 W. 12th St., Kansas City, Mo.).
Winner of countless awards and honors, Anne-Sophie Mutter is one of the greatest violinists of our day. The Washington Post praises Mutter’s “turbo-charged” sound, which has been filling concert halls since her legendary first performance at age 13 with the Berlin Philharmonic and Herbert von Karajan in 1977. Her three previous appearances on the Harriman-Jewell Series have endeared her to Kansas City music lovers.
To celebrate the 250th year since Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth in 1770, Mutter will be joined by her longtime collaborator, pianist Lambert Orkis, to perform some of Beethoven’s most popular music, including the “Kreutzer” sonata and the lovely “Spring” sonata.
