Patricia Kopatchinskaja, concept, conductor, violin
Michael Brooks Reid, conductor for the Symphony No. 2 for strings and trumpet of Arthur Honegger

Zorn / Hartmann / Ikonnikow / Fišer / Bach / Honegger

Patricia Kopatchinskaja approaches music in her own personal fashion: most often barefoot and with a fierce desire to tell a story as a whole through the chosen works. Her "Time & Eternity" programme is centred on Karl Amadeus Hartmann's Concerto funebre. Here is music "made out of the blood and tears of tortured souls... it is about us, our past and our future". This ceremonial concert also gives to hear pieces by John Zorn, Honegger, Bach and the Russian funeral march quoted by Hartmann. Such unusual juxtapositions are precisely Pat Kop's signature!
