Mathis der Maler, Paul Hindemith

Commissioned by the Filharmonie Brno under Dennis Russell Davies, three wonderful orchestra pieces have been visualized and performed twice:

Pictures at an Exhibition, Modest Mussorgsy (1874), Orchestration Maurice Ravel (1922)
Les Fresques de Piero della Francesca, Bohuslav Martinů (1955)
Mathis der Maler, Paul Hindemith (1934)

Originally the concert was scheduled for the 12. and 13. 3. 2020 in the Janáček-Theater but because of the Corona-Crisis the concert had to be canceled and instead we made a live streaming directly from the Besední dům. Yet the program had to be shortened for this and so Mathis der Maler couldn’t be presented at this time.

The full concert (including Mathis der Maler by Hindemith) was finally performed in front an big audience on Aug. 17th 2020 at the open air stage of the Spilberk Castle Brno.
