Heard the Scandinavian premiere of #MatthiasPintscher's 2nd #celloconcerto last night with #AlisaWeilerstein, the #DanishNationalSymphonyOrchestra and the composer himself on the podium. #UnDespertar was a captivating piece with a sparse and intimate sound world, that like a siren beckoned the audience to plunge into the musical landscape. I can best describe the experience as opening a door and looking into a timeless room filled with many different colours and characters, that someone then closed on your behalf after a while. You realise that you had been stirring into the room for over 20 minutes without noticing time had passed. It could have been 40 mins, it could have been 10 mins.
Pintscher also conducted #Rachmaninov's #IsleOfTheDead and not least #Beethoven's 6th Symphony - which I must admit usually is one of my least favourite Beethoven symphonies - but last night Pintscher and the very well-playing orchestra highlighted whole new details and colours in a terrific performance!
The concert is repeated tonight! Buy a ticket, if you can! #DRSymfoniOrkestret
