While the springtime has begun, the snowstorm locked Yvonne in New York, making it impossible to fly out in time of the concert. I am sorry to report that we have to CANCEL this event. We will reschedule it for later in the summer or fall.
FETA presents the Swiss-American pianist and composer Yvonne Troxler. On the program, there is the world premier of Troxler’s new piano piece “Zwischenraum” and solo piano works by Paula Matthusen (between charm and the constant law of motion), Julia Wolfe (East Broadway), Juraj Kojs (In the Mist), Michael Jarrell (Etude), Ian Wilson (Stations) and Louis Andriessen (The memory of roses). The focus of this evening’s program is in the "in between": moments, resonant time and silence. The program expands the piano range with extended techniques and additionally explores the sounds in and around the piano.
Yvonne Troxler is a pianist and composer. She has appeared as a soloist and chamber musician in the US and Europe. Troxler is widely recognized as a deeply dedicated interpreter of contemporary music. Her passion for collaboration and experimentation has led her to premiere hundreds of new works by both emerging and established artists, most notably with the Glass Farm Ensemble, for which she holds the position of artistic director.
In addition to writing for a variety of different musicians and ensembles, she has written original music for several movies. Troxler has received grants and awards from Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation, Artephila, Argosy Foundation, Pro Helvetia Swiss Arts Council. in 2016 she received a commission award for her song cycle “Feuerfleck” by the UBS Culture Foundation and the Swiss Musicians Association.
Troxler has been featured as a chamber musician and composer on recordings for Innova, Percaso and Musiques Swisses. Gapelgate Music Reviews writes about CD Brouhaha: “Troxler shows eloquence, memorability and inspired craftsmanship in this round of chamber works.”
As an educator Troxler has worked for many years with young musicians and students, creating international projects and collaborations. The resulting performances have included concerts and tours in New York, Germany, and Switzerland. These projects have been made possible in collaboration with the Glass Farm Ensemble.
