“Anne-Sophie Mutter is one of the most extraordinary musicians in the world with whom the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has long enjoyed fruitful collaborations—from Pittsburgh to Carnegie Hall and throughout Europe—and a deep friendship. We are delighted to wish her the happiest of birthdays and honored that she has chosen the Pittsburgh Symphony to share this gift of exceptional musicmaking,” said Melia Tourangeau, president and CEO of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.


“I am touched that Anne-Sophie has chosen to mark such a special birthday with our beloved musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony. And together with such a group of superb guest artists and friends, this will undoubtedly be a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience. An artist in a class of her own, Anne-Sophie has been such a dear friend to me and the Pittsburgh Symphony for many years. I am excited that our audience will get to share and celebrate such a special occasion with her,” said Manfred Honeck, Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.


The December 12, 2023, concert “Anne-Sophie Mutter, John Williams & Friends: A Celebration,” will be performed in two parts:


  • In the first half, a performance of the Beethoven Triple Concerto will bring together on the Heinz Hall stage Anne-Sophie Mutter with her longtime friend and colleague Yefim Bronfman, piano, and Pablo Ferrández, cello, one of the great young cellists. Susanne Mälkki, one of the most sought-after conductors on the international scene, will lead the Pittsburgh Symphony and the three soloists.
  • Anne-Sophie Mutter and John Williams have forged a special artistic friendship which has blossomed into projects and performances in Europe and America, including at Vienna’s Musikverein, Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center. The second half of the program is dedicated to this friendship and features John Williams leading the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra with Anne-Sophie Mutter playing special arrangements Williams made for Mutter of some of his most beloved film scores. Williams will also conduct highlights from his greatest and most popular film scores.
