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!
