"how forced and edgy his sound was"

I just listened to some of the Concerto recording with the hr Sinfonieorchester. It seems to me that Widmann is struggling, especially at the beginning, to bring his instrument up to the pitch of the orchestra. This is most noticeable in the right hand clarion register. The combination of trying to play loudly enough over a modern symphony orchestra while simultaneously trying to lip up the intonation is bound to bring out the most forced and edgy aspects of your sound.

I heard Widmann once live playing the Brahms Quintet with the Hagen quartet. It was a fantastic performance and I thought his sound was gorgeous, although he never had to push his sound to be heard over the quartet.
