Anne-Sophie Mutter has plenty to say -- and she communicates her idiosyncratic vision while following Sibelius's markings more closely than most. With Previn leaning on the Staatskapelle Dresden's dark weight, Mutter's opening notes peek through the night, leading to a sudden violent crescendo. Her arpeggios in the first movement get their full note values, and the coda has a revved-up life force . . . you won't be bored.
