Carolin Widmann: Works for Solo Violin.
Munich-born Widmann has had a celebrated international career and this concert will showcase her extraordinary breadth—she can do it all. From the haunting, austere beauty of Hildegard von Bingen’s 12th century Antiphona, to the contemporary deranged virtuosity A wonderfully versatile musician, violinist Carolin Widmann’s activities span the great classical concerti, new commissions specially written for her, solo recitals, and a wide variety of chamber music. Widmann was awarded the Bayerischer Staatspreis for music in 2017, honoring her individuality and exceptional musicianship. Named ‘Musician of the Year’ at the International Classical Music Awards 2013, Widmann has enjoyed collaborations with some of the world’s leading orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Seattle Symphony, Orchestre National de France, and many others. This solo performance of old and new repertoire will be a special treat.
