Matthias Pintscher   Profiles of Light

Matthias Pintscher is the Music Director of the Ensemble Intercontemporain. Beginning in 2016/17 he also takes up post as Principal Conductor of the Lucerne Festival Academy.

“Uriel” is the third part of Matthias Pintscher's cycle “Profiles of Light”.

As the title suggests: The Archangel Uriel plays his part in Judaism as well as in Christianity. On the one hand he is a symbol of the light and the glory of God, and on the other hand he symbolises the illumination of the soul, the spirit and the intellect. The strong expressive lines of this meditative calm flowing duet portray a moving dreamlike Uriel on a screen of stillness.

 

Arnold Schoenberg    Verklarte Nacht

Schoenberg’s string sextet, based on Richard Dehmel’s poem of the same name, is his most important pre-serialist work.  This deeply expressive work tells the story of a couple walking in moonlight, a confession of betrayal, and acceptance.
