  • The outstanding clarinettist and highly sought-after composer Jörg Widmann returns to Sala Suggia to play Elegia, a concertante work that has been widely performed by prestigious orchestras from various continents. The challenges posed by this piece are many, demanding from the soloist a unique agility in the management of expressive resources such as the multiphonics and microtones. Babylon-Suite is the concertante version of an opera that evokes the diversity and turmoil of the biblical city and also of the multicultural society in which we live today. The linguistic confusion of Babylon is the starting point for a beautiful work of contrasts and layering.
