Boldly building bridges
Swiss music prize 2018
The Mondrian Ensemble has been captivating audiences for almost 20 years with a bold mix of the classic and the new. The hard-working quartet builds bridges between eras, styles and genres from Bach to Liszt and Feldman, constantly confronting listeners with new and surprising combinations. Contemporary music is very important to the four, who have had works written for them by such exponents as Dieter Ammann, Roland Moser and Jürg Frey. Bursting with ideas and exacting in its standards, the ensemble has found its own unique place on the Swiss scene.
