Impossibly soft, Jürg Frey’s music finds the spot closest to silence and cosies up to it. Returning to hcmf// with a new work, the Swiss composer continues his humble experiments with sparsity and texture, inviting a new combination of performers to join in. For this concert, string quartet Quatuor Bozzini joins forces with Ensemble Dedalus and experimental singer Peyee Chen, all 11 artists coming to terms with the low gravity of Frey’s music.

Produced by hcmf// supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia

Co-commissioned by hcmf//, Quatuor Bozzini & Ensemble Dedalus
