Schubert: Fantasy in C major / Rondo in B minor / Sonata in A major
This insightful Schubert recording is a first documentation of the musical alliance between Widmann and Lonquich, which has been gathering momentum since they first came together to play Messiaen in Salzburg in 2008. The following year a solo recital by the pianist in Rome convinced Widmann that they should "collaborate on Schubert's music for violin and piano".
This is duo playing at a very high level, as Hans-Klaus Jungheinrich emphasizes in the liner notes: "Not once does Carolin Widmann and Alexander Lonquich's intelligent and empathetic reading devolve into the trivial state of music for a domineering violin with piano accompaniment. Instead we are treated to a magically iridescent poem of changing colours, melodies and counterpoints."
Munich-born Carolin Widmann has performed as soloist with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Orchestra di Santa Cecilia, Tonhalle-Orchester Zurich, RSO Vienna, BBC Symphony Orchestra London, London Philharmonic Orchestra and the China Philharmonic in Beijing, collaborating with conductors Riccardo Chailly, Sir Roger Norrington, Vladimir Jurowski, Emanuel Krivine, Peter Eötvös and Heinz Holliger.
