Giger's first album in seven years finds the innovative Swiss violinist exploring new territory - in the distinguished company of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir under Tõnu Kaljuste, plus cellist Beat Schneider and violist Marius Ungureanu. The material explores the nexus between early music, improvisation and modern composition and includes arrangements of pieces by Hildegarde von Bingen and the monks of St. Gallen as well as new works by Giger.
