Queen of violin virtuosos
Anne-Sophie Mutter is an artist with fingers of steel and a tone of pure gold. Tonight, she gives the UK premiere of John Williams’s Violin Concerto No. 2.

A cellist that ‘has the lot’
‘The most sought-after singer on the planet’
In an economic crunch there’s only one way for a girl to get ahead. Bertolt Brecht knew that back in 1933, and Kurt Weill set it to music that stings even while it slips tune after fabulously sleazy tune into your unresisting ears. Soprano extraordinaire Danielle de Niese stars in The Seven Deadly Sins.
