Sonate Nr. 2 As-Dur op. 39
Clarinet Quintet in B-flat Major op. 34
One of the most acclaimed clarinetists and composers of our time, Jörg Widmann is also a passionate communicator when it comes to making music more accessible to audiences—as he has shown several times in lectures and lecture concerts at the Pierre Boulez Saal. For this program, he is joined by the young German Goldmund Quartett in works by Carl Maria von Weber, whose friendship with the clarinetist Heinrich Baermann resulted in some of the most beautiful works written for this instrument.
The program includes an introduction with musical examples, in German, followed by a full performance of the pieces.
