But no one dares to go onto the bow to see what is coming.’ This most refreshingly open-minded musician is constantly looking for new directions. Her staged concert is a voyage through revolutionary voices that shaped and redefined music from Bach to the present day. But with Kopatchinskaja at the helm it steers a fascinatingly unorthodox course. Featuring orchestral performances (including Beethoven’s towering concerto, a signature piece for her) and collaborations with video and sound designers, it is a gripping portrait of one of today’s leading performers and her bold and imaginative curatorial flair.
