International Festival Portraits | Anne-Sophie Mutter

Blog

Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter discusses the life-affirming importance of music as a way of bringing people together and traces the impact it has had throughout her life.

Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its highest. Live in fragments no longer.

E.M. Forster, Howards End


Anne-Sophie Mutter performed Vivaldi's The Four Seasons at the Usher Hall during the 2015 International Festival. 

The International Festival Portraits are a series of interviews with actors, choreographers, musicians, conductors, writers and directors talking about the art that they love.

The 2015 International Festival Portraits feature Juliette Binoche, Simon McBurney, Nicola Benedetti, Robert Lepage and Anne-Sophie Mutter in a series of personal reflections on their art-form, the nature of live performance, and the unique connection they experience with an audience every time they take to the stage.
