At the Salzburg Mozartwoche of 2009, Carolin Widmann performed chamber music by Boulez with her brother and pianist Hidéki Nagano. She attracted attention with her collaboration in gefaltet, a "Choreographic concert" organised by Sasha Waltz und Mark Andre, with which the International Mozarteum Foundation opened their Mozartwoche of 2012. A 2012 recording of Schuberts works for violin and piano with Alexander Lonquich received critical acclaim for opening a new perspective on vulnerable and fragile aspects of Schubert's music. With her brother and pianist Dénes Várjon she played a trio concert at the Rheingau Musik Festival when he was artist in residence in 2014.
