About the album

Violinist Carolin Widmann brings together the last major orchestral works of two German composers: Felix Mendelssohn Batholdy’s Violin Concerto op 64, celebrated from the outset as a masterpiece, and Robert Schumann’s Violin Concerto WoO 23, which had to wait for so many years to find due recognition as one of the greatest compositions of the Romantic era. Widmann leads the widely-acclaimed Chamber Orchestra of Europe in these inspired performances, recorded at Baden Baden’s Festspielhaus. Her earlier ECM recording, in 2007, of the Schumann violin sonatas received the highest international praise, including a Gramophone Award nomination and each of her releases since then – with music from Schubert to Morton Feldman, Xenakis and Tüür – has emphasized her resourcefulness. In 2013 she was named Artist of the Year at the International Classical Music Awards.
