With compositions by Arturo Corrales (SV/CH), Jorge Sánchez-Chiong (VE/AT) & Arturo Fuentes (MX/AT)
With Petra Ackermann (AT), Philipp Meier (CH) & Jorge Sánchez-Chiong (VE/AT)
Violist Petra Ackermann and pianist Philipp Meier formed a duo in Zürich in 2009 with the aim of expanding the modest repertoire for viola and piano. Meanwhile a number of new pieces have been written, including premieres of Klaus Lang, Germán Toro-Pérez, Christoph Herndler, Arturo Fuentes, Martin Jaggi, and others. Together with the composer Jorge Sánchez-Chiong they developed the multimedia project “jupiter.analogs II” in 2014. The outcome of this unique project? A new formation, a trio for contemporary music: viola, piano and turntables.
Ackermann, Meier & Sánchez-Chiong present premieres of three composers with Latin American roots who have for some time provided important impetus in the local music scene: Arturo Corrales, Arturo Fuentes and Jorge Sánchez-Chiong. All three composers take unconventional, refreshing approaches to the traditional string / piano duo formation, expanding it with the aid of turntables and electronics.
