The WERGO CD “Filz” with compositions by Enno Poppe has been awarded the Quarterly German Record Critics’ Award, List of Best Recordings 3/2021, category “Contemporary Classical Music”.
Complex glissando structures, microtonal friction, highly differentiated vibrato: the viola concerto “Filz“ by Enno Poppe, composed in 2013/14 for Tabea Zimmermann and the Hamburg Ensemble Resonanz, places the highest of demands on the performers. In this premiere recording, a web of tonal sensuality is woven. The great soloist, Siemens Music Prize winner 2020, designs a dramaturgically concise sequence. With “Stoff” and “Wald” too, composed for Ensemble Resonanz, Poppe presents himself as a true string expert. Along the way, it becomes clear how much this arrangement enriches musical life.
