    #10 PART 2 - The Big Goodbye with Patricia Kopatchinskaja

    In the second episode of "The Big Goodbye", Patricia Kopatchinskaja speaks about growing up in rural Moldova and connecting to nature from an early age, the sound of the raindrops and the momentum of the wind were her first musical teachers. 
    This connection with her inner child makes her want to look at the tradition of performing music. She creates her own story with the compositions, shedding off what has grown on them throughout the years.

    #10 PART 1 - The Big Goodbye with Patricia Kopatchinskaja

    Violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja is not only known for her extraordinary musical skills but also for the trailblazing staged projects, in which she does not shy away from current world issues. 
    In Les Adieux, a project of Patricia with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, she focuses on climate change and the rapid deterioration of our planet. How much time have we got left on Earth? When will our natural resources be used up? When will natural disasters, rising sea levels and new illnesses bring us to our knees?
    The Between the Bars team met up with Patricia whilst touring through Hamburg. In the first episode of the 3-part series The Big Goodbye, they sat down with the controversial artist and discussed her motivation and drive for Les Adieux.

    #9 PART 3 - Mozart Momentum in conversation: A freelancer is born

    Everybody knows Mozart for his operas, symphonies and concert pieces, but not all know that he was a pioneer who fought for professional and artistic freedom. The composer is often considered the first musician who emancipated himself from the subordination of the feudal system and worked as a freelancer.  What did those freelance days look like? How did it influence his compositions during that time? Answer these and more questions by joining us in part three of Mozart Momentum: in conversation: A freelancer is born. Together with pianist Leif Ove Andsnes and violinist Matthew Truscott, host Yannick Dondelinger digs into the archives to unravel the life of Mozart, the freelancer.
