Feldman, M: Violin and Orchestra

Feldman, M: Violin and Orchestra


Carolin Widmann (violin)

Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Emilio Pomàrico

German violinist Carolin Widmann’s widely acclaimed ECM recordings have traversed a broad arc of music - from Schubert and Schumann to Tüür and Xenakis. Here she turns her attention to one of the pivotal works of New York composer Morton Feldman (1926-1987). Violin and Orchestra, composed in 1979, marked a new direction, with an almost painterly attention to detail in slowly unfolding music.

It is hard to say what kind of piece Feldman’s Violin and Orchestra really is; it is certainly not a concerto for violin and orchestra, even though the solo violin part is at least as demanding as those by virtuosi such as Pietro Locatelli and Niccolò Paganini or composers such as Brahms, Schönberg, Stravinsky and Berg. Feldman’s piece has no “brilliant” passages, no trace of acrobatics. In fact, the soloist should sit in the orchestra, not stand in front of it…The violin rarely ever emerges in a “soloistic” way and is never accompanied at all; its music seems much more to be subdued by the orchestra, before it re-emerges, in highest register, like music from a distant star, like an echo sounding from unlimited spaces - or else engendering echoes from the orchestra itself.

In this landmark Feldman recording, Carolin Widmann moves inside the glowing colourfield of sound with great delicacy and feeling, exploring the subtle orchestral texture, crafted together with conductor Emilio Pomàrico and the players of the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra.

“a gloriously abstract tapestry of unprecedented sounds. A compelling journey every time.” Sunday Times, 12th May 2013

“Widmann's performance here is exemplary in its eschewal of virtuosic gesture, instead quietly navigating the abstractly shifting sound-bed of the orchestra like a fish finding its place within a sea current.” The Independent, 10th May 2013 ****

“This performance is perfectly judged: Carolin Widmann is a fabulously assured and poetic soloist, taking minute care over the smallest, apparently most insignificant details, and Emilio Pomarico ensures that the orchestral playing is equally refined and scrupulous. It's a beautiful, haunting disc” The Guardian, 16th May 2013 *****

Clarinet Quintet


Roger Heaton (clarinet), Mieko Kanno (violin), Davide Rossi (violin), Bridget Carey (viola), Sophie Harris (cello)

One American composer, Morton Feldman, somewhat notorious for his sometimes epic works, and one British, uncompromisingly individual and a leader in the field of "non-traditional" sounds; the two have quite a lot in common. Here, both present chamber works which are (relatively) orthodox, yet still at the cutting edge of quality modern music.

Feldman Edition Volume 10 - Trio

Feldman Edition Volume 10 - Trio


Feldman, M:

Trio


Aki Takahashi (piano), Rohan de Saram (cello), Marc Sabat (violin)

The expansive length of Feldman's Trio (1 hour, 45 minutes, 22 seconds) requires a new approach to listening, which takes scale, the physical experience of sound, and novel uses of musical memory into consideration. With his delicate manipulation of musical materials, Feldman blurs the listeners' sense of time as their musical memory struggles to distinguish between past and present sounds - listeners are free to lose themselves in the beauty of each musical moment.

5.1 Surround sound, presented in Dolby and 24-bit DTS. Also a dedicated Dolby stereo mix option.

Bonus video essay on Feldman and the Trio by the noted German composer and Feldman expert Walter Zimmermann, who hosted the premiere of the Trio at his Beginner's Studio concerts in Köln (31-minutes).

“This latest interpretation by Aki Takahashi, Rohan de Saram and Marc Sabat is full of Feldman's usual tropes - the constantly shifting meter, the favouring of decay over attack, the "crippled symmetry" of repetition...resulting in a typically focused, absorbing and meditative experience unlike any other.” The Independent, 19th March 2010 *****

“It's music that demands intense concentration from the performers and the three here...ensure that nothing is overlooked.” The Guardian, 25th March 2010 ***
