Carolin Widmann gives UK premiere of Dusapin’s ‘in vivo’ at Wigmore Hall



Carolin Widmann returns once again to Wigmore Hall for an evening of solo violin repertoire, including the UK premiere of Pascal Dusapin’s ‘in vivo’. The piece – specially written for her – was co-commissioned by WDR Witten and Wiener Konzerthaus with the support of Ernst von Siemens Musikstiftung, and by Wigmore Hall with the support of André Hoffmann, president of the Fondation Hoffmann, a Swiss grantmaking foundation.
Duspain has said of the work: “In vivo is a Latin phrase which means ‘at the heart of life’. It is also used to qualify research or practical examinations of living organisms. The music is unlike a lifeless object in the sense that we can hear it, it is alive. A musical form is like an organism brought to life, where each part formulates and develops itself, according to a global dynamic.”
Other works in the programme include Telemann’s Fantasia No. 12, Bernd Alois Zimmerman’s solo sonata and Bach’s Partita in D Minor. A wonderful blend of old and new music which is definitely not to be missed!
