The music of Beat Furrer explores concepts of musical time and space, opening a window into a unique world where sounds and meanings are constantly reinvented. Although modernist in nature, the crystal-like structures of Furrer's music conceal an almost Romantic sensibility. Furrer's groundbreaking Piano Concerto, featuring the fearless virtuoso Nicolas Hodges, forms the centrepiece of the programme.
