TRIP Concert: Tune in live on Thursday November 12...
Dear friends,

More than ever, we want to be with you and to share music together.
This year is filled with rapid changes and unexpected turns, and we stand in solidarity with all those who are currently struggling with uncertainty. Due to updated local health guidelines, we have moved our in-person concert from November 11th to an online event on November 12th. We will be broadcasting this concert live TWICE, to welcome our friends from different time zones. Turn on your screens at 3PM EST (8PM GMT, 9 PM CET) or 8PM EST and help us cross the seas! With light design by our friend Lucie Bazzo, join us for a retrospective event featuring some of our favourite pieces from the last 20 years. Read more about the program below, or on our new and updated website!

Alissa, Clemens, Isabelle and Stéphanie


Michael Oesterle, Daydream Mechanics V
Cassandra Miller, Leaving
Christopher Butterfield, Trip
Thomas Stiegler, Namenlose Gärten
Jennifer Walshe, :blurt

For its twentieth season, the eclectic and versatile Quatuor Bozzini delves into the rich string quartet repertoire and offers
a retrospective of pieces written specifically for the group. TRIP is an intimate experience shared with intensity, pushing the boundaries of sound and of the concert experience itself.

Although written in the standard form of four movements, Christopher Butterfield's Trip is far removed from the classical form. Counterpoint, grotesque waltzes, canons, and even the occasional unexpected appearance of sounds from a live-tuned radio are explored in turn, taking the listener on a breathtaking journey.

Michael Oesterle's Daydream Mechanics V explores hypnotic figures, inspired by Quebec poet Nicole Broassard's book Mécanique Jongleuse. Whereas in Cassandra Miller's Leaving we follow in her wake, collectively transcribing the melody played by folk violinist Zav RT. Both of these works have travelled around the world with Quatuor Bozzini over the last 20 years: from Berlin to Buenos Aires to Jakarta!

Jennifer Walshe and Thomas Stiegler both draw their inspiration from the visual arts. :blurt is a youthful quartet by Irish composer Jennifer Walshe. A little bomb of energy filled with wild, guttural sounds, the work draws its inspiration from Piet Mondriaan's painting Trafalgar Square. With Austrian artist Tobias Pils' Chinese ink drawings as a common thread, Stiegler's Namenlose Gärten presents 13 "garden stills" filled with unique and intriguing sounds, sometimes reminiscent of Indonesian gamelan.

Illuminated by the creative eye of lighting designer Lucie Bazzo, this concert will celebrate Quatuor Bozzini's collaborations with composers from here and abroad over the past 20 years. A musical journey not to be missed!
