En route, the festival theme, does not always signify a voluntary journey. Oftentimes composers had to flee their homes or ended up in exile for other reasons. Sometimes, this caused unexpected musical enrichments. This program showcases arrangements performed by both a Turkish composer who started composing in Germany and a German composer who settled in Turkey. By hearing string quartets by Turgut Erçetin and Stefan Pohlit played side by side, imparted through the sparkling Sonar Quartet from Berlin, the contrasts of the composers reversed parallel routes are audible.
