Furrer: Begehren

Furrer: Begehren

Begehren is a “dramaturgical” and compositional spur for music theatre in the 21st century: a parable on the dialectic of isolation, a man and a woman in a no man’s land of placeless-ness and a play on the potential possibilities behind reality. With a libretto after texts by Ovid, Virgil, Hermann Broch, Cesare Pavese and Günter Eich, this production was selected by a panel of 55 critics as the best worldwide premiere of the 2002/03 season

Vocalensemble NOVA, Beat Furrer

A contemporary performance piece by Beat Furrer (b. 1954) described by the composer as Music Theatre piece in 10 scenes, incorporating dancers, singers, orchestra and sound projection. This hugely imaginative staging was filmed at a live performance in 2003 and is presented for the first time on this DVD presentation. The film also includes an interview with Beat Furrer. “The 10 scenes show both figures, HE and SHE, in different stages of their development, in an intermediate area between memory and the search for one another – and at the same time the search for themselves.”

“Furrer's fusion of music and theatre captivates but the staging is predictable.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2009

Furrer: String Quartet No. 3

Furrer: String Quartet No. 3


KNM Berlin

Furrer bases his third string quartet on three characteristic, contrasting structures. Each one of these structures is designed to have continuations, variations which are consummated in a development section. These developments, in turn, are mounted and overlapped over the course of the quartet. Beat Furrer enjoys a strong following in the UK.

Beat Furrer: Works for Choir and Ensemble

Beat Furrer: Works for Choir and Ensemble


Furrer:

Enigma I–VI for mixed choir a cappella

voices – still for mixed choir and ensemble

...cold and calm and moving


Helsinki Chamber Choir & Uusinta Ensemble, Nils Schweckendiek

The music of Beat Furrer, Swiss-born (in 1954) and Vienna-based, has long attracted attention for its subtle exploration of the possibilities of the human voice.

His six enigmas, a cycle of a cappella settings of Leonardo da Vinci, demonstrates its striking emotional range, from rich, almost Romantic tonal warmth to dramatic avant-garde expressionism.

This is the first recording of the six enigmas and of voices – still for mixed choir and ensemble, which sets Virgil in the original Latin and in Furrer’s own German translation. All eight works on this album underline Furrer’s fondness for exploring sonority, timbre and texture.

The Helsinki Chamber Choir is Finland’s only professional chamber choir, its wide-ranging repertoire includes music from the Renaissance to the present day and it is particularly highly regarded for its work with new music. The choir appears frequently at festivals in Finland and abroad and collaborates with symphony orchestras, period-instrument ensembles and contemporary-music groups. The Uusinta Ensemble is a contemporary-music ensemble founded in 1998 in Helsinki ad with an international outreach and repertoire. To date it has premiered over a hundred works by the leading composers of the present day, such as Mark Andre, Chaya Czernowin, Hèctor Parra, Kaija Saariaho and Michel van der Aa.

“a hugely attractive collection: a journey into ever-increasing complexity that is full of subtle transformations and strikingly original, sometimes strikingly simple, ideas – the perfect antidote to the neo-romantic pap that so often passes for choral music today.” The Guardian, 28th July 2016 ****

“Short settings of prophetic texts by Leonardo da Vinci, they accrue a large and complex declamatory power.” Sunday Times, 31st July 2016

“This beautifully produced disc of choral music could usefully challenge [Furrer’s] reputation and introduce him to a broader audience…quiet poise and patience are…supplied by the Uusinta Ensemble” Gramophone Magazine, November 2016

“Written for youth, the a cappella cycle “enigma I-VI” is likely to stretch any choir.” The Times, December 2016
