Orchestra of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY
Matthias Pintscher conductor

Take a trip into a magic garden of sounds! In hij 1 Mark Andre makes the orchestra snarl, creak, groan, and buzz, and it’s a genuine pleasure: For stretches the winds take off their mouthpieces, playing what sound like percussion instruments, while the string players use picks to make their strings vibrate. A century ago, Igor Stravinsky was also expanding and refining the sound of the orchestra for his classic ballet score The Firebird and using beguiling mixtures of color and lavish melody to evoke the world of Russian fairy-tale. To start his inaugural concert as Principal Conductor of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY, Matthias Pintscher has also selected a major orchestral work by György Ligeti, the tenth anniversary of whose death is being remembered this summer. In San Francisco Polyphony Ligeti continues to build on the shimmering clouds of sounds of his famous Atmosphères while developing starker dramatic contrasts and a “polyphony that is more transparent, more clearly defined.”
