Notes & Reviews:

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 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.
