"Daniel Harding dirigiert die Sätze sehr zügig, nicht als Rekordversuch, sondern orientiert an den Metronomangaben des Widmungsträgers Joseph Joachim, dessen Hinweise die Solistin nicht nur im ambitionierten Beihefttext zitiert, sondern auch beherzigt. Es wäre von Übel, schreibt Joachim," wenn der Vortragende auf allen Tönen jedes einzelnen Taktes ununterbrochen beben wollte". Daraus wird bei Faust kein dogmatischer Vibratoverzicht, aber eine fast grafische Klarheit, wie man sie in diesem Stück selten hört - gepaart mit der noch in höchsten Lagen holzwarmen Farbe ihrer Stradivari. Und die Energie dieser Geigerin sorgt für sinfonische Spannweite, mitunter mehr als das Orchester. Auch Busonis Kadenz erweitert den Horizont, führt in eine kühle Weite über dem Paukengrollen. Wo andere Musiker den Sonnenschein des Abgesangs genieen, hört man hier die Angst vorm Zerbrechen. So behutsam werden von Solistin und Orchester die weiten Bögen zusammengefügt, als könnten sie anders nicht vorm Einsturz bewahrt werden. Auf gemütliche Kissen gebettet ist dieser Brahms nicht" (Die Zeit, 3. 3. 2011-04-28)

"Nulle star du violon n'est une île - bien que certains virtuoses semblent vouloir affirmer le contraire -, et pourtant l'esprit de collaboration de David Oïstrakh était certainement unique. Il est donc tout à fait approprié de le voir ici savourer la compagnie d'autres grands musiciens. Plusieurs paradoxes sont en jeu ici, tenant avant tout à cet esprit affable et généreux, tout simplement grand de naissance. D'une part, il était comme le dit un de ses collègues, "un virtuose qui se moquait de la virtuosité" ; de l'autre, même s'il disait à son fils Igor qu'il n'existait pas de violoniste "numéro un", mais plusieurs "numéros un", ses pairs étaient prompts à le placer sur un piédestal, en tant qu'homme et en tant que musicien. Une saine constance caractérise les trois interprétations réunies ici, qui s'étendent sur sept années ; mais l'intensité personnelle avec laquelle il répond à chacun des ses trois collègues varie subtilement."--Brochure

One of the most charismatic and best-loved violinists of modern times, Germany's Anne-Sophie Mutter began her studies on the piano at the age of five. She shortly added violin lessons with Erna Hornigberger. In 1970 and again in 1974, she won first place in the Jugend Musiziert contest for young musicians. Herbert von Karajan heard her play at the age of 13 and paved the way for her international career
