Why See New York Philharmonic - Stavinsky's Firebird and Ravel?
Matthias Pintscher Debuts A New Work
The New York Philharmonic welcomes German composer and conductor Matthias Pintscher and French violin master Renaud Capucon for a thrilling two-night-only program of Ravel, Pintscher and Stravinsky. The ensemble begins the evening with Alborada de Gracioso, a dynamic work for the piano that showcases Ravel's extraordinary ear for sonority and tonal color. Its rapidly, almost impossible fast, repeated notes paint a high spirited, humorous and richly evocative morning piece usually designed to wake lovers, but in this case is performed by a jester.
Pintscher will then lead the US premiere work of his very own work 'ma'reh', during which Caucon will flex his bow. Performed in 2015 with the Berliner Philharmoniker, the piece is named after the Hebrew word meaning 'a vision' and evokes angular shades of tension and release whilst utilising the violin range's upper limits. The program comes to a close with Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, an iconic ballet beloved for its innovative rhythms, vibrant instrumental colors and uplifting, epic finale.
Opening night: 21 February 2019
