Anne-Sophie Mutter might be the violin’s Celine Dion: a glamorous virtuoso who is nearly as famous for her strange dating history as her skill at her instrument. Her first husband was 30 years her senior; her best known relationship, with pianist André Previn, began when she was 39 and he was 73 and ended four years later, though they still perform together. Mutter will join the National Symphony Orchestra and fellow German Christoph Eschenbach (a spry 72—just saying) for their season opener, playing her calling card, Mendelssohn, as well as Spanish composer Pablo Sarasate. $47–$125.
