John Williams’ Violin Concerto No. 2 was written for and recorded by the venerated composer’s friend and frequent collaborator Anne-Sophie Mutter. Her impassioned world premiere performance was given with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Williams, in Tanglewood. In this conversation, John Williams and Anne-Sophie Mutter talk about the story behind the Violin Concerto No. 2, their inspiring collaboration and working with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. “I can only think of this piece as being about Anne-Sophie. I took my inspiration and energy directly from this great artist herself.” – John Williams
