Description
This multifaceted debut collection was named a "Critics' Choice" CD in 2006 by the German Record Critics. Since then, violinist Carolin Widmann has received increasing critical acclaim at home and abroad, including the "Diapason d'Or" and the German Record Critics' Award.

"Her engaging program begins with Pierre Boulez's Anthèmes I for solo violin. Like many Boulez works, this one reflects one facet of his hypothetical single 'master work' about which all his compositions revolve. The reflection in Eugène Ysaÿe's Second and Fourth sonatas for solo violin is less abstract. Written in honor of Jacques Thibaud and Fritz Kreisler, respectively, both pay homage to the solo sonatas and partitas of J.S. Bach…. Following in the footsteps of Paganini's great 24 Caprices, Salvatore Sciarrino's 6 Cappricci again tests the mettle of the violinist with extensive modern techniques and technical demands. The program ends with a set of three etudes by Widmann's brother, Jörg Widmann, which again push the instrument's and performer's limits to the limit, even calling upon the violinist to simultaneously sing in quarter tones while playing. Widmann delivers marvelously on all of these technical demands with wonderful assuredness and confidence … [and] a beautiful, velvety sound (brilliantly showcased in the Ysaÿe sonatas)."—All Music Guide
