Jörg Widmann in conversation with Emmanuel Pahud (17 min.)
The European premiere of Jörg Widmann’s Flûte en suite was eagerly awaited in September 2012. The piece received its world premiere in Cleveland in 2011. At the concert in Berlin the soloist was Emmanuel Pahud, who confidently brought together all the virtuosity, changes of mood and the many tongue-in-cheek quotes – from Bach’s Badinerie to Wagner’s Tristan chord – into a cohesive whole.
