      Irish Chamber Orchestra
      Jörg Widmann Principal Guest Conductor/ Clarinet
      Tabea Zimmermann Viola

      “In Widmann’s hands the Hebrides Overture by Felix Mendelssohn turned into an extremely atmospheric painting of sounds. The broadly played cello line made the beginning exceedingly melancholic, and in contrast the faster part had enormous fire. A lot of liveliness was achieved through big tempo contrasts in Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony, a truly great rendition played brilliantly by the Irish Chamber Orchestra.”

      “The Bruch Concerto is seldom performed in concert. It offers a lot of space for virtuosity and, at the same time, lovingly quotes folk tunes. In their interpretation both Jörg Widmann and Tabea Zimmermann became one heart and one soul, never losing sight of each other. Even without a conductor the orchestra’s accompaniment was flawless”
