Zimmermann, Udo (*1943)

Today, to expand the horizons to include the music of the present means to cross borders and invent new principles of order in a living chaos, such as in Jorge Luis Borges' tale of the garden of intersecting paths. As one walks through it, new paths arise, whereby each is a garden of time in which different futures grow alongside one another, and where one never really knows exactly in which garden one is at any particular moment.(from Udo Zimmermann's introduction to his first "musica viva" season program, 1997/98)
