Cultural Exchange: Project Description

Against the background of the five nationalities united in the PQV, cultural exchange is a focal point of the quartet’s work. In the area of contemporary music, we develop programs with music of our respective countries and seek connections to other artistic forms of expression, such as art or literature. In September 2015 (Zurich) and February 2016 (Japan-Tour), compositions by Martin Derungs and the young Japanese composer Toshiro Mayuzumi are juxtaposed with the string quartet of Claude Debussy and the texts of Marcel Proust.
