With a multifaceted portrait of the internationally renowned German composer (and conductor) Matthias Pintscher (born in 1971), NEOS launches a long-term collaboration with Ensemble Contrechamps intended to comprise several editions in the future. Founded in 1980, this Geneva-based formation has long been among the world's best contemporary music ensembles. Joined by the excellent soloists Sylvia Nopper (soprano), Ernesto Molinari (clarinet), and the Basler Madrigalisten chorus, Ensemble Contrechamps here performs a representative cross-section of Pintscher's oeuvre, ranging from evocative solo works to the densely crafted atmospheres and sound fanaticism of his vocal-instrumental ensemble works. The musical direction here remains in the hands of the composer himself, following a long, internationally successful career as a conductor.
