Widmann Paraphrase on Mendelssohn Wedding March
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E Minor, Op. 64
Schubert Symphony No. 9, in C major, D 944 The Great

Mendelssohn’s Concert Piece No. 1 is a charming and fun-filled showpiece, a lyrical duet between Jörg Widmann and Katherine Spencer with the clarinet weaving a fun-filled melody over a basset horn accompaniment. Carolin Widmann performs Jörg Widmann’s reworking of Mendelssohn’s magical Wedding March, Paraphrase, bringing it in to the 21st century! Paraphrase was a special commission by renowned architect Daniel Liebeskind for his daughter’s wedding, and was performed by Carolin Widmann on the day. Schubert’s Great C major Symphony was premiered by Mendelssohn and was the first of the big Romantic symphonies with its intensely lyrical melodies and its monumental scale – an epic work!
