Matthias Pintscher named Principal Conductor of the  LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY

Lucerne, 04 September 2015. Starting in the summer of 2016, the German composer Wolfgang Rihm will assume overall artistic directorship of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. The conductor and composer Matthias Pintscher will support him as Principal Conductor and will be responsible each summer for a central Academy program; he will additionally focus on developing the Academy Orchestra. Both contracts are for a period of five years. The founder of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY, Pierre Boulez, will continue to remain in close dialogue with Wolfgang Rihm, Matthias Pintscher, and the Festival team as Honorary President of the Academy. For twelve years the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY has been regarded as a unique international educational campus in the field of contemporary classical music of the 20th and 21st centuries. It offers continuing training not only for some 120 instrumentalists between 18 and 32 years of age but also for young directors and composers.


Matthias Pintscher's conducting debut with the BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER

Matthias Pintscher is considered not only one of the preeminent composers of our day, but also among its most exciting conductors, particularly since being appointed head of the famous Ensemble intercontemporain in 2013. At these concerts, he will be giving his debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker. The programme includes works by Fauré, Schoenberg and Debussy, as well as Pintscher’s own mar’eh with violinist Renaud Capuçon as the soloist.

On Sunday, September 13 at 8pm Berlin time, you can watch the concert live at the Berliner Philharmoniker's DIGITAL CONCERT HALL which will also provide a replay a few days after the performance.
