“Every phrase is well thought out, every harmony resonates with vitality; her playing is full of dramatic tension and her tones have an almost divinely clear quality to them.”
—— Kultur SPIEGEL, Johannes Salzwedel
“Highly virtuosic and animated, technically flawless and with breathtaking intensity at times – these were the hallmarks of this quite exemplary performance.”
—— Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Rhein Main
Brimful of energy, Antje Weithaas’ brings her compelling musical intelligence and technical mastery to every detail of the music. Her charisma and stage presence are captivating, but never overshadow the works themselves. She won the Kreisler Competition in Graz in 1987 and the Bach Competition in Leipzig in 1988, as well as the Hanover International Violin Competition in 1991.
She has a wide-ranging repertoire that includes the great concertos by Mozart, Beethoven and Schumann, modern classics by Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Ligeti, Gubaidulina, Hartmann, Schoeck, as well as Jörg Widmann.
As a soloist, Antje Weithaas has worked with most of Germany’s leading orchestras, and has collaborated with the illustrious conductors such as Vladimir Ashkenazy, Dmitri Kitayenko, and Sir Neville Marriner.
In the upcoming concert in Mountain View Theater, Weithaas is playing Ysaÿe’s sonatas together with the solo sonatas and partitas of Johann Sebastian Bach, and placing them in direct contrast with one another. “I always combine these two composers in my solo recitals. It’s a completely new experience for the audience as well. They mostly come because they love Bach. And then they discover Ysaÿe. After Bach, their ears are opened for Ysaÿe’s subtleties – and after that, they hear more in Bach’s works than they did at the beginning.”
