Three powerfully suggestive and image-rich titles come together in the program of this CD: An durchsichtigen Fäden, Concubia nocte, and Danse interstellaire. These works circle in the field of tensions between existential fatigue and existential courage, between light and shade, between grief and comfort. As such they are prime examples of the spirited experimentation and powerful expression of the composer David Philip Hefti (*1975), who spans the full spectra between sound and noise, sensation and stillness, tension and release, with compositional virtuosity. The core of all three works is for string quartet. The Amaryllis Quartet is complemented by the warm mezzo-soprano by Maria Riccarda Wesseling in the piece An durchsichtigen Fäden and by Bernhard Röthlisberger and his basset clarinet in Danse interstellaire.
