about the programme

musica viva is celebrating Wolfgang Rihm’s 70th birthday with a week of concerts. Since the 1970s, when he burst upon Germany’s music scene as an enfant terrible, Rihm has embodied the unconditionality of the creative act. It is thus no accident that his 1978 essay on pain and pleasure bore the title Ins eigene Fleisch (“mortifying the flesh”) and dealt with the close bond between mind and body. The same applies to the quintet studies he wrote for composer-clarinettist Jörg Widmann, his former student and perhaps even his soul-mate, who will present them with soloists from the BRSO in Munich’s recital hall.
