Uraufführungen aus dem Jahr 2011

Roman Brotbeck is the administrator of the Grammont Sélection 5. He explains: 'This selection of the numerous works by Swiss composers that received their world premières in 2011 is subjective, but makes reference to the earlier CDs in this 'Sélection' series. When I took a closer look at them, it struck me how many names on the current Swiss music scene were still absent from them. It was...

Schweizer Uraufführungen aus dem Jahr 2013

The train comes to a halt near the winemaking village of Épesses by the banks of Lake Geneva, roughly halfway between Lausanne and Montreux. A path leads up to a wine tavern. From the terrace you have a view all the way across the lake to the Alps and the cultivated vineyards of Lavaux, of which Stravinsky once said they reminded him of Cézanne. This is how the Vaudois writer Charles Ferdinan...

Schweizer Uraufführungen 2014

The Grammont “Sélections” of the past seven years have never really given an impression of homogeneity. Only to a limited extent were they able to define any kind of “typical” Swiss style. Eighty years ago there still existed what seemed to be some kind of common aesthetic direction in Swiss music, and even just twenty years ago composers seemed to have at least a comparable approach to how the...

Interpreten-Portrait

"Whether this recital programme is characterized more by a certain homogeneity or by its contrasts is something I leave to the opinion of my listeners. But I do hope that they find it varied - a kind of general survey, a voyage of discovery, of the varied types of composition of recent years. Degrees of relationship between the pieces can be identified. Thus, the eloquent opening phrase of...

CELLSPARTSTHE VOYNICH CIPHER MANUSCRIPT

All three works on this CD mark an important point in the oeuvre of Hanspeter Kyburz. It is even tempting to regard them as the 'real' beginning of his composing career. The clearest proof of this lies in the augmented importance in them of structure-building procedures derived from systems analysis, using computer-aided experiments. The structural discoveries that Kyburz thereby made opened up...

ED È SUBITO SERA

Hermann Haller was born in 1914 in Burgdorf. After graduating at the Burgdorf gymnasium he decided to study music.

Komponistinnen-Portrait

The music of Iris Szeghy does not have formalistic concepts as its starting point, but is inspired by experiences of nature, art, philosophy and society. Texts by Shakespeare, Hesse, Bachmann, Celan and Merz, pictures by Klee or sculptures by Rodin are the starting points of compositions in which Szeghy engages with the thoughts and emotions of others. In working out these moments of inspiratio...

Komponisten-Portrait zum 80. Geburtstag

In the music of Jacques Wildberger, 'hope' is a central category. Even his most inconsolable works are implicitly directed towards it. This topic never lets Wildberger go. 'Even though I might assign it different weightings, it's really always the same thing with me : The struggle for the possiblitiy of Hope'.
