Southland Ensemble begins its fifth season with a program of music by Swiss Wandelweiser composers Manfred Werder and Jürg Frey. The program includes a selection from Werder’s stück 1998, a 4000 page score in which each page may only be performed once, and Frey’s delicately focused String Quartet No.3.
String Quartet No. 3 – Jürg Frey
stück 1998 – Manfred Werder
60 Pieces of Sound – Jürg Frey
für sich, klar und sachlick. einfach. / to itself, clear and objective. simple.
– Manfred Werder, stück 1998
The music is silent, but not absent. It is not speechless, and it also does not move with virtuosity bordering on silence. The music gets its vitality and its radiance, not from gesture and figuration, but in quiet presence – everything is there: colours, sensations, shadows, durations.
– Jürg Frey
