Moosbrugger Alexander

Austrian composer Alexander Moosbrugger completed studies at the Vorarlberger Landeskonservatorium (organ and harpsichord), at the Universität Wien (Philosophy) and at the Staatliche Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Stuttgart.
Moosbrugger's work encompasses a fine differentiation of the entire soft dynamic range. He primarily is writing in chamber ensemble settings, rarely doubled, preferring among other genres the string quartet. In the foreground of a composition Moosbrugger interweaves auditory and non-auditory sources, establishing musical relations through translations of historical, sociopolitical and private points of reference, analysis of symbolic functions, the devising of intonations, and "reconceived instrumental practices". Playing techniques manifest the "speaking" of musical images and are devised anew in each piece, or series of works.[1]
His compositions are internationally played, for example in the Konzerthaus Berlin or at King's College Cambridge, in festivals of contemporary music (2013 at the London Ear Festival,[2] Forum Neue Musik Luzern) and in ensemble concert series.[3] Among interpreters of his music are Klangforum Wien, ensemble recherche, Ensemble Phoenix Basel, Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, Ensemble Cairn Paris, musikFabrik, Ensemble L'arsenale, das Arditti String Quartet, Pellegrini-Quartett, Herbert Henck.
