Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Glaciers exhibit an incredible fascination. The shimmering blue of the bare glacier ice is unique, but it can show even more colors. Glaciers live for millennia, they grow and withdraw, age, seem to breathe, they kill and die. When enough snow falls, the glacier is "born". In the last decades glaciers melt at a record pace. For example, since 2000, the Alpine glaciers have lost two to three percent of their volume each year, compared to just one percent the years before. Therefore, glaciers are also called "thermometers of the world's climate".
