Le Cap (Französische Kirche) - Bern

ECCO Tour - European Contemporary Composers Orchestra

Le Cap (Französische Kirche) Predigergasse, 3011 Bern Switzerland

European premieres for ensemble and soloists

Concert in Bern as part of the L'Art pour l'Aar Festival.

Sturm und Klang has commissioned new works for mixed ensemble from composers Jean-Luc Darbellay (CH), Denis Ivanidze (BE) (solo bassoon: Mavroudes Troullos), and Jörg-Peter Mittmann (DE). The ink is still fresh, and the scores hint at three distinct ways of sculpting musical time and exploring the expressive possibilities of blended timbres from the string quintet, wind quintet, and harp.

Also featured in this concert is a piece by Olli Virtaperko, a Finnish composer, and miniatures (*) by Swiss composers Pierre-André Bovey, Ursula Gut, Hans Eugen Frischknecht, and Markus Hofer.
