Wolfgang Rihm is one of the world’s most eminent and prolific composers. His works for violin and piano encompass almost his entire compositional career, from Hekton in 1972 to the solo violin Über die Linie VII in 2006. Each draws on a wide range of influences, from folk-like moments, embedded quotations and dazzlingly virtuosic episodes. They reflect the breadth of Rihm’s various changing styles, which are almost unique in today’s music in marrying contemporary technique with emotionally powerful resonances.


   




Review By Juan Berberana,Ritmo,April 2013

El hecho de que Wolfgang Rihm (n. 1952) no estuviera presente en el catálogo de Naxos, tratándose, sin duda, de una de los grandes compositores vivos alemanes (probablemente entre los tres mejores), evidencia un cierto alineamiento en los gustos musicales del sello, que entiendo esta edición empieza a subsanar. Siendo Rihm un titán del mundo sinfónico y de la ópera (recuerden que está por ver si se estrena o no en Madrid su alucinante Descubrimiento de México, grabado ya en CPO), la elección de su catálogo para violín y piano (cinco piezas compuestas entre 1971 y 2006) parece igualmente un poco parca. Pero lo cierto es que todas, sin excepción, confirman la calidad del alemán.

Review By Grego Applegate Edwards,Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review,November 2012

For this recording the considerable efforts and artistic panache of Tianwa Yang (violin) and Nicholas Rimmer (piano) were enlisted. They do a very commendable job negotiating the twists and turns of music that sometimes sounds quite difficult to play. In the process they manage to put each work in a bright, dramatic light for us to appreciate.

This is high modernist fare, fully abstract for the most part and exciting to hear.

The Phantom und Eskapade…has a vibrant sonority and a periodicity that identifies it readily as in a concertante style.
