Jörg Widmann, Clarinet; Tabea Zimmermann, Viola; Dénes Várjon, Piano, at Carnegie Hall

Wednesday April 1, 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Jörg Widmann, Clarinet
Tabea Zimmermann, Viola
Dénes Várjon, Piano

Schumann’s lyrical fairy stories and fantasy pieces set the tone for this program of colorful tales and wild flights of fancy. They’re joined by Jörg Widmann’s Es war einmal (Once Upon a Time), an invigorating take on the fairy tale that cleverly flirts with quotations from Schumann while subversively (in the best way) turning convention on its ear. While not a fairy tale, Mozart’s gorgeous trio has a story too—the legend is that it was composed during a game of skittles.
