Deutsche Radio Philharmonie / Chirstoph Poppen

Jörg Widmann (born 1973 in Munich) is one of the rapidly rising stars of contemporary music, very highly regarded as both composer and interpreter. This is a portrait album that addresses both aspects of

Widmann’s creativity, the composer and the resourceful instrumentalist.

Christoph Poppen conducts the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie in two major works of broad scope – Messe for large orchestra, and Elegie for clarinet & orchestra. In between are the Fünf Bruchstücke from 1997, fascinating miniatures that find Widmann the clarinettist in speeding dialogues with Heinz Holliger, the latter making a recorded debut as pianist. With large or small forces, these are powerful and profoundly musical performances.

Jörg Widmann, who studied composition with Hans Werner Henze, Heiner Goebbels and Wolfgang Rihm has an expansive understanding of the structural and sound-colour possibilities of the music of our time. Few composers of his generation have received as many accolades and awards. His long list includes the Arnold Schoenberg Prize, the Claudio Abbado Composition Award, the Elise L. Stoeger Prize of the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society, New York, and more. In 2009 London’s Wigmore Hall devoted several concerts to his music.

As chamber musician Widmann performs regularly with partners including András Schiff, Tabea Zimmermann, Kim Kashkashian, and Hélène Grimaud. As a soloist he has achieved great success with orchestras around the world and given premieres of major works by Wolfgang Rihm, Aribert Reimann and Heinz Holliger.
