Jörg Widmann with Felix Mendelssohn
Composer, clarinettist and conductor Jörg Widmann regards Mendelssohn as one of the greats of music. And he sees parallels with his own works, especially the “fascination with speed, instrumental colours and fast-paced changes of mood in quick succession”. He conducts Mendelssohn’s majestic Reformation Symphony and works of his own: his overture Con brio, the Fantasy for Clarinet and the Second Violin Concerto, with his sister Carolin Widmann.
