Radiant strings, stirring chorales, and noble brasses evoke paintings — “The Concert of Angels,” “The Entombment,” and “The Temptation of St. Anthony” — by the 16th-century German painter Matthias Grünewald, subject of Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler. Plus, Salonen conducts his own works about mythological twin brothers, Pollux the demigod and Castor the mortal, with music to match their temperaments.
