Celebrated composer Jörg Widmann features in this audio stream, playing clarinet and delivering a murderously difficult piece for his violinist sister Carolin to play. She proves up to the task.

Jörg and Carolin Widmann are joined here by Dénes Várjon, a pianist from Hungary. Old music and new, performed at the Beethoven House chamber music hall in Bonn. And if you've ever wondered how far virtuosity can go, listen into Widmann's violin etudes, especially the third one.
