Jörg Widmann press reviews

“He’s truly a marvellous player, conjuring a long line in the Larghetto that was as tenderly beautiful as any performance I’ve heard.” (Daily Telegraph, February 2010)

“This phantasmagorical and so clearly defined masterpiece [Mozart Clarinet Concerto), one which remains so refined, was interpreted by Jörg Widmann in most sympathetic manner: from pearl-like runs throughout the entire range of the instrument intimately counterbalanced cantilena, Widmann produced tonal arches in perfect balance, which one can not help but call perfect.” (Pressespiegel, December 2007)

“In the Clarinet Quintet in A major, KV 581, he revealed himself as a master of expressive largo, making the finale the high point of the evening.” (Süddeustche Zeitung, December 2007)

“A most ‘Schubertian’ Mozart emerges if an artist such as Jörg Widmann takes on the challenge of Mozart as he appears in the Concerto for clarinet and orchestra in A major op. 622. Technical brilliance couples with tonal beauty, and – assuming perfection – profound layer after profound layer is opened up.” (Drehpunktkultur, December 2006)
