20 Jahre Mondrian Ensemble


Thomas Wally + Martin Jaggi




Mondrian Ensemble, Martin Jaggi & Thomas Wally – this combination is no coincidence: The Basel-based quartet celebrates its twenty-year anniversary with those two composers who have often crossed paths with the ensemble. Martin Jaggi is a co-founder of Mondrian Ensemble and was its cellist from 2000 to 2013.

This formation for chamber music was described, in 2018, at the Schweizer Musikpreis, as “daring bridge builders”. The cycle Kôrd I–III as well as Plod were written for the Ensemble. Thomas Wally still knows Ivana Pristašová and Petra Ackermann from their time in Vienna and has composed two piano quartets for Mondrian Ensemble, which can be heard at the concert at Reaktor as well as on the new portrait CD, published by col legno, which will be revealed to the public during this Wien Modern concert.
