Peter Eötvös is a foremost Hungarian composer and conductor. Alongside his theatrical Chinese Opera, da capoin its U.S. premiere deftly reimagines themes by Mozart while featuring a cimbalom. Nicknamed the national instrument of Hungary, the stringed cimbalom is cousin to the dulcimer and has gained its resurgence from contemporary composers and film scores. Avant-garde visionary Karl Stockhausen produced a half-century of influential and sometimes controversial works. In its U.S. premiere, his groundbreaking Points embraces amplification as singular spots become swarms of sound.
