Williams to Premiere New Violin Concerto ‘Next Summer’

In a recent interview with German television BR-Klassik, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter has confirmed that John Williams is currently writing a new “big” violin concerto for her, to be premiered “next summer”.

Williams recently composed for Mutter a concert piece for solo violin, strings and harp, as well as new violin arrangements of some of his most popular themes for film, released last year on their Across the Stars collaboration album.
