Studio Dan „More Creatures & Other New Stuff“ Part IV: Streichquartett (A)

Sophia Goidinger-Koch, Gunde Jäch-Micko: violin
Martina Engel: viola
Maiken Beer: cello

Musik von John Zorn, Fausto Romitelli und Christof Ressi

Way back on our debut double album, “Creatures & Other Stuff,” we started playing with the idea of our musical creations as breathing animals unto themselves. Whether fully-notated, improvised, or a combination of the two, our musical creatures take on a life of their own.
On that note, we’re calling our brand-new concert series “More Creatures & Other New Stuff,”and allowing our ensemble to explore all of its many creature selves. We’re playing four concerts at Porgy & Bess in Vienna in June, which will include pieces by American composers which are rarely heard in Vienna. We’re also performing several pieces by the Austrian-Canadian composer Caitlin Smith, who joined our artistic direction team in 2015.
