Ondine proudly presents the first album with works by German composer Jörg Widmann (born 1973) only. This release features his Violin Concerto (2007), Insel der Sirenen for Violin and 19 Strings (1997) and Antiphon for Orchestral Groups (2007-08).
 
The acclaimed violinist Christian Tetzlaff, for whom the Violin Concerto was written, plays the solo part in these works and handles their challenges with incredible perfection. He considers this Violin Concerto to be one of the greatest contemporary concertos.
 
Daniel Harding, one of the brightest conductors of the younger generation, is a frequent visitor for the top orchestras worldwide. In his position as Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra he has developed the orchestra to become one of the most interesting and diverse ensembles.
 
The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, one of Europe’s foremost orchestras, collaborates continuously with leading conductors, soloists and composers. Their strong commitment to contemporary music is also reflected on the present recording.
 

"Widman’s Violin Concerto will appeal to those who like Berg’s. Tetzlaff’s performance is outstanding... An impressive collection" ****

Terry Blain - BBC Music magazine (Brief Notes Section) - December 2013


"... In Christian Tetzlaff, Daniel harding and the Swedish RSO, Widman has found suitably uncompromising interpreters, and the recordings are as unvarnished and wide in perspective as the music itself demands."

Arnold Whittall - Gramophone magazine - August 2013


 "...His playing [Tetzleff] is passionate and committed and, amongst several remarkable attributes, I would cite his intense, powerful tone in long, passionate high-lying phrases. This is a magnificent performance of a major work [Concerto] ... in all three works that make up the programme, the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra under Daniel Harding’s direction palys with the utmost virtuosity and conviction. These are live performances, but you would never know it. There is no applause and the performances are caught in superb sound in no way inferior to the standards we have come to expect from Ondine...."

William Hedley - International Record Review - July/August 2013 


 "It’s rare that a new work’s performance overshadows the piece itself, but Christian Tetzlff’s account of the violin concerto Jörg Widmann composed for him in 2007 is so astonishingly vivid and secure that Widmann’s impressive work at least has to share the spotlight with its dedicatee. With its huge expressive range and chiselled melodic lines, the solo writing hardly pauses for breath for the whole 28 minutes. Tetzlaff makes every second matter; one is carries along on the bleak journey Widmann invents..."
