Matthias Pintscher Leads the New World Symphony in the US Premiere of NUR

Apr. 01, 2021

On April 3, Matthias Pintscher led the New World Symphony in the US premiere of his own piano concerto NUR featuring Inon Barnatan as the soloist. Translating to fire in Hebrew and Arabic, NUR was hailed as spellbinding and seductive in its 2019 premiere. The program also featured innovative works by Marcos Balter, Enno Poppe and George Lewis.

NUR was composed for Daniel Barenboim and the Barenboim-Said Akademie who premiered the work in 2019. Matthias Pintscher notes:

“I thought about this scoring from a completely new angle when Daniel Barenboim invited me to write for this special ‘west-eastern’ orchestra and for him. The solo instrument and the ensemble are partners, there is no performing in the usual sense, but an encounter on an equal footing, true music-making in dialogue.”
