Anne-Sophie Mutter, Powerful Violinist

Anne Sophie Mutter is one of my favorite violinists in the world, and I make a point to see one of her concerts every year.  When she plays classical music, she puts such a fresh spin on everything I feel like I'm hearing it for the first time.  There's a great performance on YouTube of her doing Vivaldi's "Winter" from The Four Seasons, which really captures the jagged blizzards of winter through music.  And for those of you who are the super-romantic type, she really makes the violin sing in Massenet's "Meditation."
