Notes & Reviews:

Prolific contemporary composer Wolfgang Rihm will celebrate his 60th birthday this year. This, the 6th installment in Haenssler Classic's critically acclaimed survey of Rihm's orchestral music, features two very melodic concertos. Both works feature the phenomenally talented siblings Jörg (clarinet) and Carolin (violin) Widmann.

The Guardian
[Uber die Linie II ] must be one of the most substantial, an exacting test of any clarinettist's control and stamina. The soloist plays almost continuously throughout the 37-minute work that the orchestra sometimes supports and accompanies, sometimes contradicts. The music is full of allusions to past styles, and its effect is fragile and haunting.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Both pieces are rewarding in their own way, and worth hearing if you're up to a musical and intellectual challenge. The violinist has a few intonation problems and gets buried a few times, but the clarinetist stands tall. Sound is satisfactory; notes are in English and German.
