Anne-Sophie Mutter, born in 1963, is one of the world’s most famous violin soloists. An early-bloomer, she was discovered by Herbert von Karajan, and made her debut with him when she was 13. Aside from her preeminence in the standard repertory, she has premiered many works written for her.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear some of the highlights of her career.
