World Premiere of Philipp Maintz's Organ Concerto, de figuris

Sep. 18, 2020

Philipp Maintz’s de figuris, a concerto for organ and large orchestra, draws its inspiration from the “Apocalipsis cum figuris”, Albrecht Dürer’s depiction of the apocalypse in fourteen scenes of 1498. The result is “a large, almost ‘symphonic’ tableau of flowing transitions and changes of perspective, as you might experience when you lose yourself flicking backwards and forwards, contemplating these woodcuts of the apocalypse.”

The world premiere was given on September 17 at the Palais des Beaux Arts by organist László Fassang and the Orchestre Philharmonique Royal de Liège conducted by Gergely Madaras. Another performance follows on September 18, 2020 in Liège.
