Jorg Widmann, Tabea Zimmermann, Denes Varjon
The second of nine Radio 3 Lunchtime Concerts recorded at the 2011 Schwetzingen Festival.
Every Summer the 250-year-old castle of Schwetzingen, just outside the German city of Heidelberg, plays host to a music festival. The stars of today and, hopefully, tomorrow take part - as they have done since the festival began in 1952. Today's programme centres around the remarkable clarinettist and composer Jörg Widmann. He plays some of his own music as well as being joined by friends for chamber-music by Mozart and Schumann.
Presented by Jonathan Swain.
