The piece ''Lullaby for Anne-Sophie'' was written in 1989 and was not published during Lutosławski's lifetime. The manuscript of this work was in the collection of the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel. It was a wedding gift for Anne-Sophie Mutter, violinist. As Krzysztof Meyer said: ''The not quite forty bar Lullaby is a composition full of beauty and at the same time refinement. In it we can hear all the qualities of late Lutosławski: long-breathed melody, harmony based on meticulously constructed chords and irregular rhythm in the violin. Echoes of earlier works can also be heard, such as the steady, 'cradling' triplet motion in the piano part at the beginning of the song, reminiscent of the first of the 'Five songs' to words by Iłlakowiczówna''.
