2020 PERSPECTIVES TRILOGY
Three composers. Three Perspectives of This Time.
We commissioned three composers to draw on the thoughts and feelings arising from the global pandemic of 2020. In collaboration with composers, players and a sound engineer, we explored ways in which elements of spontaneity and deep connection might still be present in a very different form of “chamber music” - one in which recordings were made from isolation, and following the guidelines of physical distancing. The resulting trilogy is available online from Dec 14 2020 at kegelstattensemble.bandcamp.com
We are delighted to be working with composers Jakub JANKOWSKI, Luke ALTMANN and Peter De JAGER and audio engineer Sam LENCH.
