Info for New Mozart



Besondere Raritäten sind auch hier die Spezialität von Reinhard Goebel. Das Violinkonzert KV 268, bisher nur eingespielt von Yehudi Menuhin und Mayumi Fujikawa, stammt wohl in der Hauptsache von Johann Friedrich Eck. Und die Bearbeitung der Gran Partita vom Münchner Hofkomponisten Franz Gleißner ist gar eine Weltersteinspielung.

Mirijam Contzen
is highly esteemed by the international musical world as a soloist, chamber musician, festival director and teacher. Her playing combines grandeur and technical mastery to create compellingly refined interpretations. Mirijam Contzen’s distinctive sound and unique power of expression testify to a profoundly individual musical understanding.

In January 2020 Sony Classical released the two violin concertos of Franz Clement with the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne under the direction of Reinhard Goebel, with whom Mirijam Contzen has worked intensively over many years. The second violin concerto is a world premiere recording. Franz Clement was the dedicatee of Beethoven’s violin concerto, which itself was composed in response to Clement’s first violin concerto. This album was awarded with the “Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik” as best recording (02/2020) as well as with the OPUS Klassik.

In the 21/22 season, as part of the “New Mozarts” series for Sony Classical, her new album of the violin concerto in E flat major KV 365, which was attributed to Mozart will be released. This is the first recording of this piece since 1965. Partners are the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg conducted by Reinhard Goebel.

Mirijam Contzen will also work with the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, the Solistes Europeéns Luxembourg, the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, the Ensemble Resonanz, the Georgian Chamber Orchestra Ingolstadt and the Staatskapelle Halle. From the outset of her performing career, Mirijam Contzen has been a staunch advocate of unknown repertoire. In this vein, she recorded the violin concerto “Et derrière toi marchent les étoiles..”by Nicolas Bolens with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. For her début CD, which was awarded the Echo Preis in 2001, she chose seldom played works by Hubay, Ferrara and Geszler. Her CD recording with pianist Tobias Bredohl juxtaposes works by the composer Stefan Heucke with sonatas by Hindemith.

In 2016, Mirijam Contzen was appointed professor of violin at Berlin University of the Arts. Of particular concern to her is the fostering of exceptional young talent on the violin, the commitment to training music teachers, and the interest in learning processes in society.
