Notes and Editorial Reviews

“Once upon a time…” Like many other composers of the Romantic era, Robert Schumann found inspiration in the power of fantasy. This program includes his depictions of classic fairy tales in Märchenbilder, the Fantasy Pieces Op. 73, and Märchenerzählungen, as well as a contemporary take on the subject by Jörg Widmann, included in this album as a world premiere recording. The clarinetist and composer is joined by Tabea Zimmermann and Dénes Várjon. Clarinetist, composer and conductor Jörg Widmann is one of the most versatile and intriguing artists of his generation. Widmann’s compositions are performed regularly by conductors such as Daniel Barenboim, Daniel Harding, Kent Nagano, Christian Thielemann, Read more Mariss Jansons, Andris Nelsons and Simon Rattle and premiered by orchestras such as the Wiener and Berliner Philharmoniker, New York Philharmonic, Orchestre de Paris, BBC Philharmonic and many others.
