Anne-Sophie Mutter as Guest on ARTE with Sofia Gubaidulina’s Violin Concerto

The creation of one of the most important violin concertos of the beginning 21st century and the rehearsal work on it by soloist Anne-Sophie Mutter with the Berlin Philharmonic under the direction of Simon Rattle was accompanied by filmmaker Jan Schmidt-Garre last summer with the camera. The premiere of the Second Violin Concerto “In tempus praesens” by Sofia Gubaidulina took place at the Lucerne Festival in August 2007. Gubaidulina had written the work on commission from the Swiss music patron Paul Sacher for Anne-Sophie Mutter.

Schmidt-Garre’s film will be broadcast on 21 April 2008 at 22:45 PM under the title “Sofia – Biography of a Violin Concerto” on ARTE.
