ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Reflecting its internal structure, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra operates also musically in a democratic way. Starting with a concert at the Lucerne Festival, this tour mirrors that structure. Sharing the lead means passing around the musical focus, giving the score the full possibility of coming alive. The MCO, led by concertmaster Matthew Truscott, will meet with violinist Isabelle Faust, with whom they have been working together since 2008 and are strongly connected by the sense of chamber music playing they bring to ensembles of any size. Viola player Antoine Tamestit makes a first appearance with the MCO. In this program, the MCO will explore an interesting pairing of pieces by Maurice Ravel, Heinrich Biber and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in a tour that passes several summer festivals in Lucerne, Villach, Eltville am Rhein, St. Ottilien and Helsinki.
