Fredi Zuberbühler, dulcimer
Roland Christen, double bass
Andrea Kind, dulcimer
The origins of the dulcimer have not yet been researched. Recent studies of reliefs from Assyria, between the ninth and seventh centuries B.C., show an instrument that can most probably be described as a predecessor of the dulcimer. You can read about the first hammered dulcimers in Switzerland in Ratsbücher, (1447 Zurich) or Gerichtsprotokollen [court records] (e.g. from 24 April 1631 in Bern), where it is reported that they danced to the hammered dulcimer illegally. Even if its origin is not in Switzerland, the dulcimer is an indispensable part of musical heritage. We have opened the Interludes with Swiss music tradition and we are closing the Interludes concerts with it. Although in a somewhat different form.The Trio Anderscht brings together surprising styles, breaks stylistic chains, swings in the blues, sparks in the Appenzeller style, indulges in classical music or rocks in the 70s. Anderscht loves musical contrasts and shows that with Appenzeller dulcimer more is possible than one would expect from this instrument. And dancing is not forbidden either!
Free admission. Food & Beverage by the Hotel Alpina Klosters.
