Notes & Reviews:
This recording offers a musical portrait of Swiss composer Jürg Frey (b. 1953), with a particular focus on his chamber music composed between 2011-14. Featuring the Swiss chamber ensembles Konus Quartet and Mondrian Ensemble Basel. Mr. Frey initially turned to a career as a clarinetist, but his activities as composer soon came to the foreground. His work is marked by an elementary non-extravagance of sound, a sensibility for the qualities of the material, and compositional precision. Mr. Frey also organizes a concert series, moments musicaux, aarau, a forum for contemporary music, in his hometown.
