What's Interesting

CSO Creative Partner Matthias Pintscher brings his Ensemble Intercontemporain, pioneers of 20th and 21st Century music, 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.

Throughout the pandemic, the Orchestra has strictly observed state and CDC safety protocols and will continue to monitor and adjust plans as updated conditions warrant.
