Violinist Carolin Widmann

I have two CDs by her -- Robert Schumann's violin sonatas; three violin and piano works by Franz Schubert. Both of those were revelations for me. Having heard and appreciated these works by others, I was surprised to discover how much artistic, musical possibility was still latent in them. Widmann's versions are astonishing.

I'm looking forward to her newest CD -- concertos by Mendelssohn and Schumann.


  1. What she said about the manipulation of time by composers gave me pause. "How do you proceed when you have a nothingness in the middle of a piece?" Thank you for posting this.

    1. That part about time and nothingness also caught my attention. Thank you!
