Antoine Fran├žoise & Mercury Quartet_SPOTLIGHT SWITZERLAND_The Forge_London

The Mercury Quartet juxtaposed in their Swiss Spotlight a new composition by Johan Treichel for quartet and electronics and compositions by two leading figures of Swiss contemporary music, Eric Gaudibert and Klaus Huber, with brand new works by English rising star Charlotte Bray (Prom Composer 2012) and Oliver Weeks. From the unusual world of Johan Treichel’s music via the extremely intimate world of Gaudibert to the frenetic marathon pieces of Oliver Weeks, it was a great journey between Swiss and UK contemporary music and by the end of the evening the stunned audience was eager to discover more.
