2009-11-04 – "Merci" in neuem Kleid
……Right from the start the four musicians presented their incredible tempo and tight sound. The violin bow virtually flies across the
Strings. The violin sings out and pleads in the high registers.
All musicians get to play their soli. ZW is a band leader who can stand back and give his fellow musicians their freedom…..
Last but not least there are those songs where ZW uses his violin
almost like an electric guitar. ……
Hier he holds his violin like a guitar and does not use his bow
but hits the strings with his thumb. With vibrato and sliding
he uses stylistic elements typical of a guitar, and exploits the
tonal possibilities of a violin to ist limits…..
….In general, the concert makes all musical boundaries disappear
and the audience is treated to a crossover of the special kind.
