BLAIBACH, NEUMARKT, BRUSSELS, FREIBURG

Irish Chamber Orchestra

Jörg Widmann Principal Conductor/Clarinet

MENDELSSOHN, MOZART, WIDMANN & WEBER

Mendelssohn The Hebrides, Op. 26 Fingal’s Cave

Widmann 180 beats per minute

Weber Clarinet Concerto No. 1, Op. 73

Widmann Three Shadow Dances (Drei Schattentänze) for Solo Clarinet


Mozart Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551 Jupiter

Mendelssohn made his first performances in England in 1829 and set off on a walking tour of Scotland that would prove inspirational for his Fingal’s Cave Overture, inspired by a stormy voyage to the Hebrides Islands.

Widmann showcases the first of two of his own highly original compositions, 180 Beats Per Minute for String Sextet, inspired by the music of his college days. His Three Shadow Dances views the clarinet from a completely different perspective encouraging the performer to develop an enthusiastic and playful approach to exciting new playing techniques.

Weber’s Clarinet Concerto No. 1 in F minor, Op. 73 is a benchmark and standard for clarinet that demonstrates Weber’s complete understanding of the capabilities of the instrument.

Mozart’s Jupiter with its Olympian character has the greatest of all symphonic finales.
