About Pintscher Conducts Pintscher with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

An old man stands at the window, and looks out on falling snow. That haunting image was the imaginative starting point for Un despertar, the beautiful new cello concerto by the BBC SSO’s Artist-in-Association, Matthias Pintscher, and it’s taken from a poem by Octavio Paz.

But its theme – of remembrance – is universal, just as the graceful Baroque-inspired dances of Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin celebrate the lives (rather than the tragically early deaths) of friends lost in the Great War.

Bruno Delepelaire, First Principal Cello of the Berlin Philharmonic, is the soloist, and Pintscher himself conducts – before crowning the concert with the majesty, mystery and irrepressibly human warmth of Mozart’s Symphony No.39.
