Nasher Sculpture Center presents Soundings: Carolin Widmann - Works for Solo Violin
Soundings' next offering transcends the temporal with Carolin Widmann: Works for Solo Violin. Munich-born Widmann has had a celebrated international career and this concert will showcase her extraordinary breadth, she can do it all. From the haunting, austere beauty of Hildegard von Bingen’s 12th century Antiphona, to the contemporary deranged virtuosity of Salvatore Sciarrino’s "Sei Capricci" (after Paganini); from Bach’s celestial "Partita No. 2 in D Minor" to Jörg Widmann’s "Wry Paraphrase" on Mendelssohn’s "Wedding March," to George Enescu’s rarely heard "Fantaisie Concertante," it is an evening untethered to time and place.
