Conductor & Clarinet
To close the season, the Boulez Ensemble celebrates Jörg Widmann with a special concert on the occasion of his 50th birthday. The composer, clarinetist, and conductor, who has been closely associated with the Pierre Boulez Saal since its opening and holds the Edward W. Said Chair for Composition at the Barenboim-Said Akademie, will lead the ensemble and appear as soloist in a selection of his own works.
Prior to the concert, the new film documentary Im Labyrinth – Der Musiker Jörg Widmann will be screened in the Barenboim-Said Akademie’s Mozart Auditorium. Ticket holders will receive a separate message to register for this free event.
