Jörg Widmann: clarinet Heinz Holliger: piano

Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, conducted by Christoph Poppen

Jörg Widmann (born 1973 in Munich), is widely acclaimed as both a composer of fierce originality and a soloist of great resourcefulness. As a chamber musician he frequently performs with artists including Tabea Zimmermann, Andràs Schiff, Kim Kashkashian, Helene Grimaud and Heinz Holliger. A number of fellow composers - including Holliger, Wolfgang Rihm and Aribert Reimann - have dedicated works to him. Meanwhile his own works have been premiered by distinguished interpreters: Pierre Boulez, for instance, gave the first performance of Widmann's orchestral work "Armonica" with the Vienna Philharmonic, and Mariss Jansons directed the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks in a first performance of his Beethoven tribute "Con brio".

Widmann, who studied composition with Kay Westermann from the age of 11, subsequently making further studies with Wilfried Hiller, 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. It has served him well both in his own writing and in his responses to the music of others.

After a well-received ECM debut as soloist last year on Erkki-Sven Tüür's concerto "Noesis" (where he was heard alongside his violinist sister Carolin Widmann) now comes a portrait album that addresses Widmann's creativity as composer and player.

Christoph Poppen conducts the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie in two major works of broad scope: "Messe" for large orchestra and "Elegie" for clarinet and 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 his recording debut as pianist. The Fünf Bruchstücke belong among Widmann's first published works and also among several he has written to explore and extend the potentialities of his own instrument.
