Certain musicians seem to make everything they touch buzz with electricity – and few do so with more verve, humour or flair than Jörg Widmann: composer, conductor and clarinettist extraordinaire.
“Any Widmann performance brings whatever he plays kicking and screaming into the present day” says The Guardian, so expect to hear Schumann’s familiar Second Symphony with new ears.
You’ll be wowed, too, at the brilliance of his musical calling card Con brio (which breaks Beethoven into tiny pieces before putting him back together) and the beauty of his playing in Weber’s famous clarinet concerto.
