Also renowned as a conductor, Matthias Pintscher has gained fame as a composer, such as this latest example, written for violinist Leila Josefowicz, La Linea Evocativa (2020) A Drawing for Violin Solo.

The livestream below (broadcast on Feb. 16) also includes Bach's Partita No. 2 in D minor (and equally well done):

I own a number of recordings of Pintscher the composer, but I have been underwhelmed. His influences are clear, but he lacks some kind of original and engaging touch beyond those influences.
