Biography
Madeleine Ruggli was born in Thalwil on the lake of Zurich. She completed her musical studies in Zurich and graduated with a diploma in composition, music theory (Hans Ulrich Lehmann) and solo singing (Dorothea Bamert-Galli). Her catalogue of works includes orchestral pieces and chamber music of varying instrumentation. In 2001 Ruggli was awarded the sabbatical year offered by the city of Zurich for her compositional work. Her complete works are published under the Ricordi München – Tre Media. The composer was an assistant lecturer for music theory at the Zurich School of Music amongst other things. She now lectures in music history, music theory, and lieder interpretation/chamber music at the Lucerne School of Music, a position she has held since 2004. Madeleine Ruggli lives in Eigenthal (Lucerne) and Bellefontaine (France).

Zwischen Zeiten II (1995-1996)
for solo violin and 11 strings (3.3.2.2.1)
In this work, the orchestra assumes neither the antagonistic nor the ancillary solo-accompanying role it would normally take within the context of a traditional violin concert. Here it envelops and colours the sound, or complements the melodic fragments of the solo violin in the absence of its deeper register. Solo and orchestra are thus one sound and, just as a sculpture offers its viewer a multitude of perspectives, so the eleven strings allow the sound of the solo violin to be heard from all sides. This collective sound, initially quite static, feels its way tentatively forward in small, sometimes quarter-tonal steps, explores tonal colours (on the border of noise), dynamics and movement before the quasi-nucleal solo violin is released from its orchestral sheath. Now, with expressive and virtuosic gestures, they play with their possibilities; fathom their borders, impassionate, temperamental, but also ephemeral and delicate. (M.R)

Zugrundegetrauert (1996-1997)
for deep female voice and small orchestra (2.ca.2.2/2.1.0.0/timp.perc/0.4.4.3
Texts: Andrea Gadient
The music responds to the poem by Andrea Gadient, associates and spins thoughts further. Together with the orchestra, the deep female voice carries the text and allows speech and sound, as expressions of each other, to rejoin. Here the orchestra departs from its usual setting: the soprano register is thinned out (the oboe and violin are missing) and the deep register in the woodwind is fortified by the addition of an alto flute, English horn, bass clarinet and contrabassoon. The deep female voice - introverted in quartertone melodic fragments, lost in whispers, outcries - often inserts itself into the ensemble as a further instrument. (M.R.)
