Late Night with Jörg Widmann and Sarah Aristidou: The Expressive Worlds of Clarinet and Song

The clarinet is Jörg Widmann’s special instrument. At this Late Night, our composer-in-residence will display its expressive flexibility – through his Three Shadow Dances, which amount to a microcosm of the instrument’s possibilities, and Schubert’s pastoral Shepherd on the Rock, a partly contemplative, partly virtuosic dialogue between clarinet and soprano. Widmann’s partner is Sarah Aristidou, who also will sing the enticing, erotic vocalise Labyrinth V. The Free Pieces, atmospherically concentrated ensemble miniatures, will show off a further exciting facet of Widmann’s sound world.
