Wolfgang Rihm is one of the world’s most eminent and prolific composers. His works for violin and piano encompass almost his entire compositional career, from Hekton in 1972 to the solo violin Über die Linie VII in 2006. Each draws on a wide range of influences, from folk-like moments, embedded quotations and dazzlingly virtuosic episodes. They reflect the breadth of Rihm’s various changing styles, which are almost unique in today’s music in marrying contemporary technique with emotionally powerful resonances.

Uber die Linie VII

BBC Music Magazine

January 2013


“You could scarcely do better than this CD for an introduction to some of Rihm's more intimate pieces: at Naxos's better-than-reasonable price, it is virtually risk-free. Tianwa Yang and Nicholas Rimmer sound quite at home, even in the most difficult passages, and imbue these works with emotion, as well as meeting their technical challenges with aplomb.”

Gramophone Magazine

February 2013

“The devotion that Rihm attracts from his performers is impressive and this young duo is no exception. Both deploy a full range of colour and nuance, and the ability to change mood in an instant. The early pieces might just have benefited from a touch more savagery”
