The ensemble aequatuor sees itself, since its founding on the occasion of the 'Weltmusiktage' in 1991, as an individual, open group "from solo to aequatuor", engaged exclusively in experimental and contemporary forms of expression. In the 15 years of its existence the ensemble aequatuor has created a repertoire, by way of commissions and adaptations of works in free instrumentation, which is still in the process of expansion. In 2004 the ensemble received the first sabbatical year for interpretation offered by the city of Zurich and attracted much attention with the musical theatre project 'Schattenrisse' (including a performance at the Lucerne Festival).

Members:
Matthias Arter (oboe)
Ingrid Karlen (piano)
Tobias Moster (violoncello)
Sylvia Nopper (mezzo-soprano)
