Um CD ouvido com pouca atenção por este que vos escreve. Mas acho que ele vale pelas obras de Zimmermann e Xenakis, assim como pelo lindo som extraído pela ruiva Carolin Widmann de seu violino. O repertório é raro, coerente e a ECM não costuma perder a viagem.
Aliás, vejo agora que o The Guardian elogiou muito o CD, conforme vocês podem ler a seguir:
Carolin Widmann follows her impressive survey of Schumann’s violin sonatas last year with something completely different and, in its own way, equally outstanding. These four 20th-century works for violin and piano are sharply contrasted from each other, too, and it’s a measure of Widmann’s excellence, and that of the pianist Simon Lepper, that they all receive performances of such idiomatic understanding. If Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s early, rather Bartók-like and Bartók-lite sonata is the least memorable of the pieces, Widmann presents the best case I’ve heard on disc for the communicative power of Schoenberg’s sometimes dry and forbidding Phantasy for violin with piano accompaniment. She makes light of the technical challenges of Xenakis’s rebarbative Dikthas, while at the other end of the postwar stylistic spectrum she and Lepper produce a beautifully voiced performance of Morton Feldman’s Spring of Chosroes. A very fine collection.
