SAT 26 OCT · 6PM SALA SUGGIA
Clarinettist, composer and conductor, Jörg Widmann is one of the most versatile and fascinating artists of his generation. It is in this triple role that he presents this concert, within the scope of his residency at Casa da Música in 2019. This is a perfect opportunity to hear several pieces for solo instruments, all of them very technically demanding, that reveal the hidden aspects of the clarinet, the horn, and the violin. The chamber music of the German composer is featured in two pieces that look somewhat to the past: Liebeslied is a celebration of love inspired by Baudelaire’s verses, while the Quintet is a tribute to the work of Mozart with the same instrumental configuration.
