Anne-Sophie Mutter, Andre Previn perform for David Letterman

Anne-Sophie Mutter recently stopped by CBS's "The Late Show with David Letterman" to perform a selection from her new album collection -- "ASM 35," a compilation of music celebrating her 35 years as a violinist.

Mutter was joined by her ex-husband André Previn, who accompanied her on the piano. Letterman had some trouble handling the large plastic casing for the album, joking that it would make an ideal home for a hamster.

Following her performance, Mutter asked Letterman if he had a hamster at home, to which the comedian responded that he will get one. Here's a clip of Mutter performing a selection from Gershwin's "Porgy and Bess" on Friday's broadcast...
