Jörg Widmann at Yellow Barn

Monday, May 30, 2016

Since the 1970s, composers of all nationalities have enriched Yellow Barn's summer season with their music, the work they do with musicians, and interactions with audiences. In 2015, Yellow Barn welcomed renowned German composer and clarinetist Jörg Widmann. His residency week offered multiple performances of his music, including performances by the composer, and opened the door for ongoing friendship and collaboration.

In April 2016, Jörg will return to Yellow Barn to develop the North American premiere of his song cycle Das Heisse Herz with baritone William Sharp and pianist Seth Knopp in advance of a three-day residency with Yellow Barn's Dallas partner, the Nasher Sculpture Center, for the concert series Soundings: New Music at the Nasher.
