Wolfgang Rihm is one of the world’s most eminent and prolific composers. His works for violin and piano encompass almost his entire compositional career, from Hekton in 1972 to the solo violin Über die Linie VII in 2006 (of which this is the world premiere recording). Each draws on a wide range of influences, from folk-like moments, embedded quotations and dazzlingly virtuosic episodes. They reflect the breadth of Rihm’s various changing styles, which are almost unique in today’s music in marrying contemporary technique with emotionally powerful resonances.

Acclaimed as ‘an unquestioned master of the violin’ (American Record Guide), Tianwa Yang has quickly established herself as a leading international performer and recording artist.

Nicholas Rimmer currently teaches chamber music and piano at the Hanover University of Music and Drama. He was nominated by Fonoforum magazine as one of the “Rising stars of the year” in December 2011.
