With “L’Aurore” the German violinist Caroline Weidmann also shows her versatility in solo concert. As is known, she also brings the luxurious sound of her Guadagnini instrument to solo concerts.
This time she wanted to expand her solo repertoire especially widely and began recording with Hildegard von Bingen and his antiphon Spiritus sanctus vivificans vita, a different kind of Nocturne than one might imagine from an advocate of the physical and mental health of mankind.
Her compositional creativity was inspired by the healing powers of music, which Weidman was able to articulate vividly in her manifesto.
But the works of Eugène Ysaye and George Enescu are even more remarkable with their future possibilities of expression in violin literature – especially with the aforementioned construction of Widmann’s violin, which surpasses all sound value.
Nature is Caroline Weidman’s top priority and her service to art. And it proves it too in the wonderfully interpreted Part No. 2 in D minor by Bach, a recording of which a nicer approximation to CD could not be imagined. One should acquire it and decorate the home archives with it if only because of the spectrum of the unusual sound one breathes from Guadagnini.
