Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra
CSO Creative Partner Matthias Pintscher and pianist Inon Barnatan return to Music Hall for a special collaboration with the CSO. The CSO’s own Henrik Heide brings the Aello (‘harpy’) character to life in Olga Neuwirth’s flute concerto, while Pintscher’s Nur (“Fire”) explores the transformative power of fire. A rare U.S. performance of Lachenmann’s Tableau studies “non-music, which is again music” and Scriabin’s sublime Poème de l’extase close out the program.
Preceding the performance in the Music Hall Foyer is Jay Schwartz’s Music for Autosonic Gongs, an installation for 8 electro-acoustically controlled tam-tams.
