Slide Ensemble

Slide is a new music ensemble based in Zurich since 2020. The quartet commited with the music of our time, with the improvisation and the collective musical practice. It is formed by musicians with an international career and experience in the contemporary repertoire and free improvisation. Slide also aims to approach and promote new written works that combine the particular instrumental line-up of the quartet and the free improvisation.

First Prize – Künstlerischer Wettbewerb „Improvisation im Ensemble„ – 22. Jahreskongress der Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie
