Widmann’s two early works, now a part of his own history, turn out to be good, even exhilarating, listening; inspired by the young composer’s disco nights, 180 beats goes well with the fascinating Fantasie, played by the composer himself, which effortlessly surmounts the limits seemingly set on the harmonies of a monophonic wind instrument. We may easily go astray when 'placing' a piece of music, as the lively booklet-text tells us Schumann did when he credited the 'Scottish' Symphony with an Italian flavour. Be that as it may, this is a spine-tinglingly new way to listen to Mendelssohn’s music.
