The Pianist Denis Kozhukhin will appear on the game area in the middle of the Pierre Boulez hall, and bows very tight and avoids any sensation of a soloist's entry, only to fall spontaneously in the aufrausch the end of the cantability of Carl Maria von Weber's a-flat major Sonata, Opus 39. The Whole is bound melody. The interpreters of the lyrical breath of the music, con molt’affetto sung. The energy of the attack and taking back to the Pianissimo of the kind that clarity about the harmonies hovering. Almost imperceptibly, the player takes the modifications of the tempo, true, self arpeggios and sparkling passages are the image of romantic fantasy.
the Russian musician has sent on what Jörg Widmann emphasized in his plea for the composer in an "introduction with sound examples". He takes a look behind the apparent harmless nature of Weber's music, to the depth of track. Such a defense is even necessary, to ask of the master, the speech is, the paints of the cloud-veiled sun in its natural sensations?

The leading wind Instrument, however, comes to the Solo, which is the result of the Munich "clarinet genius" Heinrich Baermann, a close friend of Weber. With a wide Ambitus of the soloist gallops, finally, a fireworks of virtuosity, the remains lead to the creation of the game. Widmann has conquered the musical versatility, the doors open.
