Music of Hans Thomalla & Beat Furrer

We have timbre-wrangler Hans Thomalla on the hook for a full-scale new work this season, titled Bagatellen for String Quartet, and those that have been watching closely will know that we recorded his transportive Albumblatt on our debut album. We’re also eager to bring Austrian composer Beat Furrer into view. Easily one of the most brilliant sonic craftsmen living today, Furrer is largely off the radar in the US, and we think his String Quartet No. 3 is a perfect point of departure.

We are delighted to be making our Bargemusic debut!


Bagatellen by Hans Thomalla was commissioned by Spektral Quartet and funded by the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. Additional project support from Goethe-Institut Chicago.

Promotional support provided by the Austrian Cultural Forum NYC and the Consulate General of Switzerland.
