"Sebastian Gottschick's adaptations of Ives' songs and short instrumental pieces in this sense not only pay homage to the composer but develop his work further. The multifaceted ensemble and the instrumentation Gottschick chose allow him to be highly differentiated in his approach to the specific Ives sound that oscillates between crude realism and symbolist fragmentation: he either deliberately avoids this sound (for instance by using a vibraphone in Grantchester) or he pushes it to the point of prismatic refraction. Apart from this, Gottschick's selection proceeds in a continuous, multi-perspective order that can be interpreted as a drama en miniature, a model of an ordinary day from the snatches of dreams in the morning to the falling night, and finally also as the epitome of the diversity of life itself. Behind all that the power and intangible nature of memories, Ives' lifelong theme, becomes visible and audible."-Wolfgang Rathert

Artist Biographies:

"Nicola Romano, born in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1974. From an early age, Nicola has developed a close association with chamber music, which has since become the centre of his musical orbits. For many years, he has performed concerts with Lucerne-based Dreilindenquartett as well as with the ONYX Quartet and the Basel String Quartet.Since 2004, Nicola has been a member of the "ensemble für neue musik zürich", which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With "klangcombi", a quintet dedicated to innovative Swiss folk music, he has found the perfect musical paddling pool, in which he enjoys maximum stylistic freedom and openness. Together with LAUS and the Trabant Echo Orchestra, Nicola has been exploring and experimenting with musical arrangements which straddle the interface between serious and light music. Besides this, he has been busy giving concerts as part of various projects by the Swiss jazz and free improv scene. Nicola also teaches at the Uri School of Music (Musikschule Uri) and at Küsnacht High School (Kantonsschule Küsnacht)."
