Carolin Widmann and Nicolas Hodges discussion concert

Discussion concert on 10 May 2016 at 20:00h in the FreiRaum
Carolin Widmann, violin
Nicolas Hodges, piano
Felix Schmidt, moderator

World-renowned violinist Carolin Widmann comes together with classical music curator Felix Schmidt in a discussion concert. She is accompanied by Nicolas Hodges on the piano.

Carolin Widmann was described by critics as an exceptional musician from an early age. The violinist has devoted herself to old and new music from the very beginning of her career. In her concerts she seeks to forge a link between the classical and Romantic violin repertoire and contemporary compositions. For this Movimentos Festival lecture concert she will perform Bach's Partita No. 2 for solo violin and a sonata by Russian composer and Shostakovich pupil Galina Ivanovna Ustvolskaya. The concert will also feature the world premiere of a piece by Czech composer Martin Smolka.
Carolin Widmann was born in Munich in 1976 and studied with Igor Ozim in Cologne, Michèle Auclair in Boston and David Takeno in London. As a soloist she has worked with conductors such as Sir Simon Rattle, Riccardo Chailly, Sir Roger Norrington, Vladimir Jurowski, Jonathan Nott and Pablo Heras-Casado and with composers Pierre Boulez, Wolfgang Rihm and Rebecca Saunders, some of whom have composed works for her. The 2014/15 season included the world premiere of a violin concerto written for Carolin Widmann by Julian Anderson, commissioned by the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin.
