Duri Collenberg studied piano at the Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK) in the class of Hans-Jürg Strub and composition with Mathias Steinauer. He completed his piano studies in summer 2010 and studied composition at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam with Willem Jeths and Wim Henderickx from 2011 to 2015. At Theater Chur he was engaged as musical director/composer for two productions: “LA MÜDADA” (premiere 01.10.2020) and “NOTLÖSUNG” (2014). With the artist trio “frölicher | bietenhader | collenberg” he regularly occupies places of the most diverse kind – a reservoir, a silo, a Bergell residential palace, etc. – in closely interwoven image/sound installations. He is a founding member of the “Kukuruz Piano Quartet”, a group for experimental concert and theatre music that maintains an active concert schedule at home and abroad – both in and deliberately alongside the tried and tested temples of high culture. The quartet has performed in productions with directors Ruedi Häusermann (“PIANOFORTE”) and Boris Nikitin (“24 PICTURES PER SECOND”) on various European theatre stages.
