Aspects of Beat Furrer's Oeuvre

Daniel Ender

A portrait painted using successive touches of Furrer's artistic expression, this text addresses a number of distinctive features such as the biographical path of the composer's artistic vision, the connection with the visual arts, the taste for improvisation, the work of minute differentiation with the material, the metaphor of chiaroscuro, the complexity of the rhythmic processing, the musical and literary entanglements, the issue of continuity, and the significance of the voice.  In relation to some of these features, certain passages from Quatuor à cordes (1984) and Nuun (1995-1996) are commented in detail.
