Rihm’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in Washington

Posted by Johannes Feigl on 16 January 2015

Wolfgang Rihm, Tzimon Barto and Christoph Eschenbachm during the rehearsals for the world première of the Piano Concerto No. 2 in Salzburg.

It was not ingratiating, nor neo-Classical in the sense of offering hummable tunes in a definable style, but it was pleasing to the ear. […] The dense textures of the music were pulled apart like cotton balls to reveal the air between and around them. (Anne Midgette, The Washington Post, 15.01.2015)
