MATTHIAS THE PAINTER

March 11

As a wedding present to the daughter of his most influential teacher, Stravinsky gifts the speedy fantasy entitled Fireworks – an early work that foreshadows the composer’s impending fame. Taking centre stage is internationally acclaimed pianist Alexander Panizza in performance of the Brahmsian-flavoured Burleske by German composer Richard Strauss, another young and prophetic piece on this program. In his orchestral suite Mathis der Maler, Hindemith finds balance between bliss and abomination to depict a musical portrait of a 15th century altarpiece and the life of German painter Matthias Grünewald.
