Mag­ni­fi­cent con­cert

with Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mutter Virtuosi in Eldborg.

A unique concert by star violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Mutter Virtuosi in Eldborg last Friday were truly world-class and the musicians received multiple standing ovations. High-quality acoustics and an elegant setting in Eldborg delivered the concert in a magical way to the guests and showed that the world stage belongs in Harpa. For decades, Mutter has performed in all the major music halls in the world, and now Harpa has joined the list of world-renowned concert halls abroad in which the superstar has performed.

The programme included the Icelandic premiere of Unsuk Chin's Gran Cadenza, a violin duet written for Mutter, a concerto for four violins by Antonio Vivaldi, Chevalier de Sainte-Georges Violin Concerto No. 5, opus 2 by Joseph Bologne and most importantly The Four Seasons by Vivaldi. Mutter Virtuosi, Mutter's string ensemble, is considered one of a kind, with rising stars and outstanding students selected by its scholarship fund.
