Matthias Pintscher Conducts the World Premiere of neharot in Tokyo

Jul. 15, 2021

Matthias Pintscher leads the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra in the world premiere performance of the orchestral work neharot and the Japanese premiere of un despertar  for cello and orchestra, on August 27

The composer writes: “Neharot means rivers in Hebrew, but also tears. It also describes lamentation. This music was written during the worst period of the many daily deaths in the spring of 2020...and is a clear echo of the desolation and fear, but also the hope for light that so emotionally characterized this time in our lives.”

Earlier that week, Matthias Pintscher and Ensemble Intercontemporain will perform several concerts as part of the Suntory Hall Summer Festival. The performances include Toshio Hosokawa's Futari Shizuka, Tōru Takemitsu's And Then I Knew 'Twas Wind, György Ligeti's Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, Toshi Ichiyanagi's Symphony No. 1 "Time Current", and a number of Matthias Pintscher's own works including: beyond II (bridge over troubled water); Bereshit; Now INow II, Uriel, celestial object I, celestial object II, and occultation.
