Thüring Bräm
Au temps perdu (1976)
for flute and string trio
The title plays with Prousts ‘A la recherche du temps perdu’. This through-composed piece requires flexibility due to improvisation-like parts. Satisfying for the flutist who plays on the background of an often noise like sliding sound carpet.

Michael Schneider
Schubert überquert die Donau bei Wien (1997)
for string trio
Twelve bars taken from Schubert's abandoned Impromptu D 946/I form the material for this string trio, which was composed for the "Sarine's Pilgrim" festival during the Schubert Year in 1997. Each of the attacca-performed, overlapping sections I-VIII uses the 142 notes of this fragment only; after the Schubert fragment (IX) there follows an epilogue (X) using all the notes of the chromatic scale except for c and f. Through the interlocking of each of the successive sections using motive-like elements, a metamorphosis takes place at the interface between the rapidly-changing scene sections.
The title plays with Siegfried Lenz's narrative "Einstein überquert die Elbe bei Hamburg". Schubertian parallels are exhibited in Lenz's story of an apparently insignificant old man on a ferry on the river Elb near Hamburg, who, using the power of his mind, is able to stop time and, similar to a concave mirror, in whose person all events are concentrated. The title "Schubert überquert die Donau bei Wien" plays symbolically on this reference: A single musician, insignificant to the surrounding world, was the central musical crystalisation point for the classic to romantic transition.

Labyrinth (2002)
Music
for violin, viola and violoncello
Each instrument has its own individual character and its own tempo. It is like three wanderers with the same destination but each choosing a different route and each walking at a different pace. The wanderers occasionally meet, walk a while together then separate.

Max E. Keller
Farbenfahrten (2001)
for string trio
Alone from our notation it is apparent that pitch and rhythm are primary in the European tradition: dynamics is already an auxiliary. ‘Farbenfahrten’ quasi-inverses the priorities: a sequence of six colours form the basis of the composition and remain present even when other dimensions of the music emerge more dominant.

mit Pfiff (2012)
for flute, bass clarinet, piano, violin, viola and violoncello
The leitmotif of this piece is indeed, as the title suggests (Pfiff = whistle), an instrumental whistle by the whole ensemble, which is followed in each case by a kind of echo - be it hard and loud accents or soft chords.
(Trans.: mit Piff also translates as 'with flair' or 'with zing').
Dedicated to the Ensemble Theater am Gleis Winterthur for it's 20th anniversary.
