The music festival "Alpentöne" ("Sounds of the Alpes"), now in its seventh edition, shows once more that the Alps are a region of transitory encounters, more perhaps than any other landscape in Europe. Here, close together, lie the sources of the most important European waterways. Very different ways of life and very different temperaments have come upon each other in the Alps for centuries, both isolated from each other by high mountains and also united by mountain passes. Here, where traders and goods, languages and cultures move through, there takes place every two years a real "summit meeting". Musicians from all over Europe, primarily from the Alpine countries, come together in Altdorf in order to demonstrate the many facets and possibilities of acoustic Alpine wanderings. The festival, founded in 1999, is not bound to any single musical style. Its theme is clear, but not its genre. It can offer new music, classical, jazz, folk or (new) folk music or mixtures of any of these. The result is a highly varied programme that is reflected, too, in the selection of works on this CD.
