Part of the Saison Le Vivier
“Les visionnaires” is a project of gentle, focused, disquieting music. Bozzini Quartet presents the Canadian premiere of a new work of Christian Wolff, commissioned for the quartet by the MaerzMuzik festival, Berlin. The concert as well features Arbor Vitae, the final composition written by James Tenney, which was commissioned by the Bozzini Quartet. A strange and beautiful early work of John Cage is performed alongside a sister-composition of “distilled (sublimated) folk songs” of German composer Walter Zimmermann. These rarely performed masterworks reveal a thread of visionary thought over 50 years.
