Music and Museum | Celebrating Annemarie Schwarzenbach

LOCATION: BECHTLER MUSEUM OF MODERN ART

SUNDAY, APRIL 10 AT 6 PM

In celebration of the new exhibition Annemarie Schwarzenbach: Departure without Destination, the Bechtler Ensemble performs music of composers from places Annemarie Schwarzenbach lived and traveled to in her lifetime. Photographs highlighting a variety of subjects from Schwarzenbach's travels to Switzerland, Africa, and Austria are paired with Swiss composer Paul Juon, African composer Justinian Tamusuza, and Austrian composer Hugo Wolf. We invite you to imagine an around-the-world journey that Annemarie captured so beautifully.
