"The title of my work 'Introduction and Aria' is programmatic. It emphasizes the endeavor I pursue in my composing to start from vocal aspects even in pure instrumental music. This implies the idea of music that 'speaks' in all possible shades and colours and at the same time incorporates the conditions of the instruments. In text-bound music, on the other hand, I emphasize the instrumental qualities of the singing voice [...]. The program juxtaposes the two complementary starting points." (Balz Trümpy)
