Pintscher 7 Bagatelles with Apotheosis of the Glass Harmonica for Clarinet in B-flat
Written in 1994.
Matthias Pintscher was born in Germany in 1971 and studied composition with Giselher Klebe and Manfred Trojahn. Formative influences were his encounters with Hans Werner Henze, who invited him to Montepulciano in 1991 and 1992, and with Helmut Lachenmann, Pierre Boulez and Peter Eötvös. Pintscher first came to international attention with the opera Thomas Chatterton at the Semper Opera, Dresden (1998), and later with his second opera L'Espace Dernier at the Opéra National de Paris (2004). He has worked with the Cleveland Orchestra in 2002, the Konzerthaus Dortmund, Lucerne Festival, the Radio Symphony Orchestra Saarbrücken, the Philharmonie, Cologne, the RSO Stuttgart, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, and the Danish Radio Orchestra. As a conductor, Matthias Pintscher works regularly with leading orchestras and ensembles in Europe and the USA. As of September 2014, he is Professor of Composition at the Juilliard School of Music, New York.
