Prolific contemporary composer Wolfgang Rihm will celebrate his 60th birthday this year. This, the 6th installment in haenssler CLASSIC’s critically acclaimed survey of Rihm’s orchestral music, features two very melodic concertos. Both works feature the phenomenally talented siblings Jörg (clarinet) and Carolin (violin) Widmann.
