Notes & Reviews:

Beat Furrer's art of composition is like an exploration of fundamental principles, an exploration that is made accessible in the work and through the act of hearing it. Aggregate states in sound, musical processes, the nature of time itself and the contrast between the subject and the world are the topics of his works - though they are at the same time expressive snapshots of the moment. This portrait CD with works by Beat Furrer from 1991-2011 affords a twenty-year overview of his works. Aer, ... cold and calm and moving, and Lied belong to a group of works that he wrote after completing his first opera Die Blinden (1989). Auf tönernen füssen (2001) after Friederike Mayröcker belongs to the time when he wrote his music theatre piece Begehren, while Studie, for piano (2011) was composed most recently, shortly after his music theatre work Wüstenbuch.
