  1. Once upon a time, Anne-Sophie Mutter was a child prodigy.
    ‘ Last November, she brought 13 of them (including five young women) along with a veteran harpsichordist
    to the North America for concertizing and extra-curricular fun.
    ) She noted that some Mutter Virtuosi leave
    their actual families behind in order to study in Germany.
