The title AERIAL | ROOTS of the series of events curated by the Kairos Quartet goes back to the composer Sandeep Bhagwati, who – born in India, grew up in Germany and today commutes between Canada, Switzerland and Germany. He used the term aerial roots to describe what home is to him. As an independent, cosmopolitan and internationally active ensemble, the Kairos Quartet identifies with this description and made it the title of its latest concert series. It began in May 2022 with Crazy Twins and will last until 2023 thanks to the extension of the NEUSTART funding from the German Music Council (DMR). The Fifth Program, Montage | Collage, therefore won't be the last in the series.
