 Re: Jorg Widmann in the Mozart Quintet

Furthermore, I would like to add that in our clarinet world, we really need people like him. Music of Mozart, Brahms, Weber etc. are certainly great, but we cannot play them only forever. We need new contemporary pieces to give our instrument new life and also extend the expression ways of our instruments, otherwise people would only think, ok, the clarinet is just an instrument with far less repertoire than violin, cello and piano, and clarinetists will never have a chance to have recitals or to perform concertos as frequently as violinists. Many years ago, when I first had a listen of the piece "Five Fragments" performed by him in live, it changed my understanding of my instrument, and suddenly I realized the clarinet can express much more things than we normally know.

FYI, please also have a look at the sheet music of his Three Shadow Dances. Reading the instructions would be as interesting as listening (just click preview).
