Deutsche Grammophon presents the world-premiere recording of John Williams’ Violin Concerto No. 2. The work was written for and recorded by the venerated composer’s friend and frequent collaborator Anne-Sophie Mutter. Her impassioned performance was given with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Williams. The new album also includes three film themes newly arranged for the violinist by their composer. Williams and Mutter have worked together often since she gave the first performance of his Markings in Boston almost five years ago, and have co-starred on two previous albums: Across the Stars (2019) and John Williams in Vienna (2020).
