On 25 October 2014 at 20:30 Bozzini Quartet will present a preview concert of the Dutch premiere of nadir for string quartet and electronic sounds (2014) by Rozalie Hirs at De Link, Tilburg, The Netherlands. In 2011 and 2012 the exquisite Bozzini Quartet, based in Montréal, toured Hirs’s first string quartet Zenit (2010) in Canada, The Netherlands, and Switzerland. The new work is scored for two violins, viola, cello, and electronic sounds. The sounds are synthesized from sinetones through additive synthesis. The other pieces on the programme are by Aldo Clementi and Jürg Frey. (photograph: Bozzini Quartet performing nadir (2014) by Rozalie Hirs at Cenakel, Tilburg, The Netherlands, on 28 October 2014)
