Program

Washington Performing Arts presents:
Anne-Sophie Mutter, violin & Lambert Orkis, piano

Longtime collaborators Anne-Sophie Mutter—the “undisputed queen of violin-playing” (The Times)—and NSO principal keyboardist Lambert Orkis reprise their Grammy Award–winning interpretation of three of Beethoven’s spectacular violin sonatas on the occasion of the composer’s 250th birthday. The “timeless team” (Classical Review) of Mutter and Orkis bring their decades of shared dialogue to the iconic “Kreutzer,” the lyrical “Spring,” and the quirky A minor sonatas.
