Amongst virtuosi of the younger generation, Anne-Sophie Mutter remains one of today’s finest ambassadors for contemporary music, and her passionate advocacy of Rihm, Moret, and above all, Lutoslawski, is self-evident in this imaginatively assembled boxed set. In addition, Mutter proves to be equally effective in three undisputed 20th-century masterpieces, with her Berg demonstrating a special identification with the more turbulent aspects of the score.
