What remains? Against the backdrop of this question the vision string quartet, together with RADIALSYSTEM V founder Folkert Uhde, have developed a project which breaks with the traditional concert set-up and combines otherwise separately played individual pieces into one continuous video stream. The result is a musical stream of oeuvres by Jürg Frey, Samuel Barber, Dmitri Shostakovich and Claude Debussy, which begins in almost utter darkness and ends in an almost impressionistic world of colour.
Founded in 2012 and based in Berlin, the vision string quartet has already established itself as one of the finest young string quartets of its generation. With unique versatility that focuses on the classical string quartet repertoire alongside their own compositions and arrangements of other disparate genres, the four young musicians are on a mission to re-address with integrity how classical music is presented and perceived by both new and traditional audiences. Their distinctive characteristics of performing all their programmes standing up and completely from memory lend its performances an added intimacy and intensity which has been widely praised.
