About the Event
The Concertgebouworkest, the Groot Omroepkoor and outstanding soloists perform music by Bartók, Senk andPintscher under the baton of Matthias Pintscher in the prestigious Concertgebouw.
Composer and conductor Matthias Pintscher juxtaposes the celestial ecstacy of the Song of Songs with Bartók’s hellish nightmare, The Miraculous Mandarin. Bartók’s exciting pantomime music still sounds modern, and has inspired a new staging featuring the lifelike dancing puppets of the Duda Paiva Company.
