Emmanuel Pahud will perform two world premieres next week. On 26 January he gives the premiere performance of Luca Francesconi’s Daedalus for flute and ensemble in Berlin’s Pierre Boulez Saal with the Boulez Ensemble, conducted by Daniel Barenboim. The work is commissioned by the Daniel Barenboim Foundation, and described by the composer to be “ labyrinthine“; inspired by the maze at Hampton Court. More information and tickets for the concert here.
Emmanuel returns to the Boulezsaal on 28 January to perform Toshio Hosokawa’s trio for flute, cello and piano, Klänge der lethe. Commissioned by Emmanuel Pahud, Jean-Guihen Queyras and Eric le Sage, they perform it on tour in the four co-commissioning venues; the Centro Nacional de Difusión Musical (Madrid), Kölner Philharmonie, Daniel Barenboim Stiftung (Boulezsaal) and the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.
