    Le récit de la Genèse, qui décrit la naissance et l’enfance de notre planète, a de tout temps inspiré les compositeurs, que l’on songe par exemple à l’oratorio de Haydn La Création. Matthias Pintscher et la LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY présenteront une mise en musique contemporaine du texte biblique, qui a vu le jour en 2016–2017 à l’occasion du quarantième anniversaire de l’Ensemble intercontemporain : sept compositeurs de sept pays différents ont chacun écrit une pièce d’une dizaine de minutes sur l’un des sept jours de la Création, depuis le chaos originel jusqu’au jour où Dieu s’est reposé. Dans ces pièces, les compositeurs ne reflètent pas seulement le récit biblique de la naissance du monde mais aussi leur propre activité : la création musicale. Un projet collectif inhabituel et en même temps un panorama bigarré de la musique d’aujourd’hui. 


    It was in the summer of 2004, that Pierre Boulez and Michael Haefliger founded the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY – thus establishing an educational campus devoted exclusively to new music. Every summer since then, some 130 young, highly gifted musicians from all around the world are given the opportunity to study contemporary scores and modernist classics in detail through daily rehearsals, workshops, and lessons and then to present their insights in performance. Serving as instructors are members of the Ensemble intercontemporain from Paris, one of the most renowned ensembles in the field of contemporary music. Besides the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY Orchestra, in which all of the students are consolidated, various additional ensembles join together to present their own concert programs. Individual artistic initiative is also encouraged, such as in the series titled LUCERNE FESTIVAL 40min, LUCERNE FESTIVAL Lounge, and at the Buvette, in which Academy participants present projects they have developed on their own. It’s not only instrumentalists who benefit from the Academy’s praxis-oriented training – the institution is also a prime choice for conductors and composers. Each year offers a master class in conducting; in 2014 it will be led by Heinz Holliger, who will initiate participants into the secrets of the métier with works of Claude Debussy and Bernd Alois Zimmermann. In addition to that commissions are given to young composers. In the summer of 2014, the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY presents a focus on vocal symphonic music with its performance of Luciano Berio’s Coro and is therefore expanding its training mandate to 40 highly talented young singers. Selected members of the newly formed LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY Chorus will also have an opportunity to take a master class in voice with “artiste étoile” Barbara Hannigan.

    Matthias Pintscher

    Matthias Pintscher has been permanently associated with the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY since 2016 as its Principal Conductor. Born in 1971 in Marl in North Rhine-Westphalia, he regards composing and conducting as complementary spheres of his artistic work. He studied composition with Giselher Klebe and Manfred Trojahn; Hans Werner Henze was also among his mentors, as was Peter Eötvös, who additionally taught him conducting. Pintscher quickly advanced to become one of the most successful composers of his generation: his music theater works Thomas Chatterton and L’Espace dernier received their premieres at the Dresden Semperoper and the Opéra national de Paris, respectively, and his orchestral works have been premiered by the Berlin and New York Philharmonics, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, and the Cleveland Orchestra. As a conductor, Pintscher has led such ensembles as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Staatskapelle Berlin, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia; in February 2018, he made his debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, and in June comes his debut with the London Symphony. He has been affiliated with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra as artist-in-association since 2010, began his tenure as Music Director of the Ensemble intercontemporain in Paris in 2013, and in 2020 will serve as director of the Ojai Music Festival in California. The Hamburg Elbphilharmonie presented him as composer-in-residence and artist in focus during its inaugural season. In this capacity, he performed there with the Orchestra of the LUCERNE FESTIVAL ACADEMY. Matthias Pintscher teaches composition at the Juilliard School of Music in New York.
