While Paul Hindemith was composing Mathis der Maler (Mathias the Painter) into a three movement symphony, he was planning on expanding the music into what would eventually become an opera by the same name. The UPO will demonstrate the musical beauty of the piece: a tortuous atmosphere gives way to a celestial chant by the brass, encapsulating the overall intensity. The unusual contrasts of the movements create a musical tribute to the panels of the very impressive Isenheim Altarpiece painted by the opera’s protagonist, German painter Matthias Grünewald.
