Aimard performs world premiere with BRSO
1 May 2012
Pierre-Laurent Aimard gives the world premiere of the new concerto for Piano The Disenchantment of the World by Tristan Murail with Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks on 4 May as part of Festival Musica Viva in Munich.
George Benjamin conducts the orchestra in the new work, a joint commissioned from Musica Viva, the New York Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra.
This premiere follows Aimard's critically acclaimed recitals at New York's Lincoln Center and a performance of Ligeti's Piano Concerto with the Royal Concertebouw Orchestra. Later in May, Aimard journeys to Berlin to perform Birtwistle's Antiphonies for Piano & Orchestra with the Staatskapelle Berlin and Andris Nelsons.
The world premiere performance will be broadcast live on BR-KLASSIK. For further information, please click on the link below.
