SINFONIE NR. 4

The Fourth Symphony marks not only the first highpoint in Shostakovitch's canon of 15 symphonies, but also the closing point of a phase in his compositional development - a development that underwent a radical change of direction in the works that followed it. The demands made by the Fourth Symphony are considerably greater than those of Shostakovitch's first three symphonies. This fact is also...

IL Maestro Di Cappella

The bass Fernando Corena (born 22 December 1916 in Geneva, died 26 November 1984 in Lugano) belongs among those very few Swiss singers who achieved triumphal success in the most important opera houses of the world. He had a broad repertoire that was dominated by comic roles, and Francesco Corena became identified with that rare type of voice known as the basso buffo, in which a rich timbre was ...

Werke für Tuba und Ensembles

"The tuba is a young instrument in the history of music. But at the same time, hardly any other instrument has developed so much in the past decades, both in terms of its construction and in the technical possibilities of its performers. The musical possibilities of this instrument today encompass a vast spectrum, and it pays to discover them. I wanted to make a CD in which the tuba communicat...

Komponisten-Portrait

Researching with altered pitches and the complex connections of intervals and harmony is an endless process. The prerequisite is an ability to think beyond any single system and its concomitant ideologies. Using as many systems as possible and as many multiple tunings as possible can open our ears and our understanding of harmony. Every frequency on the sliding scale of our perception is able t...

Edward Staempfli was born in Berne in 1908. His development was determined in equal measure by German and French culture and by music and literature. He studied in Cologne and Paris. The war years and the years immediately thereafter, Staempfli spent as a freelance composer in Switzerland - first in Basle, then in Lugano. During these years, from 1939 to 1952, his most important performances to...

Emil Frey

Klavierwerke

Emil Frey's oeuvre comprises 102 opus numbers, of which only a small number have been published, and they range from piano miniatures to piano suites, chamber music, orchestral works and large-scale choral pieces. Nevertheless, Frey's music for piano solo is central to his oeuvre and impresses one on account of its formal and stylistic variety as much as by its colourful, iridescent aesthetic.

Schweizer Lieder nach 1900

Swiss songs after 1900 “The Swiss tend more to yodelling than to cubism” wrote the Dadaist Hugo Ball in 1916. This cliché of early modern Switzerland being averse to artistic progress, limping behind all others, has proven durable, though the truth was of course not so straightforward. Most leading Swiss composers from the turn of the century onwards studied at the big conservatories ...

Historische Aufnahmen 1968-1998

The Ensemble Neue Horizonte Bern (New Horizons Ensemble) was founded at a time when the seeds of Utopianism had sprouted forth - and, in so doing, also drew attention to its roots. The artistic avant-garde had paved the way for greater freedom. Whoever wanted to, could make use of it. The music of the avant-garde in all its forms has remained central to the artistic activities of the ENHB. Its ...

CONCERTI GROSSI I&II

In Switzerland, there is nothing to suggest that Ernest Bloch (1880-1959) is in fact, in international terms, the most often-performed composer of Swiss origin. While the composer of the symphonic fresco Helvetia, The Land of Mountains and its People (1929) receives little attention in his homeland except for the occasional performance of a few chamber music works, the composer of the epic rhap...

Klavierquintette

Bloch's First Piano Qunitet is still rarely played, though all experts seem to be at one in acknowledging its exceptional quality. The American musicologist and pianist Olin Downes regards it as 'the greatest work in its form since the piano quintets of Brahms and César Frank'. Bloch had first turned to twelve-note techniques in his Third String Quartet, written in 1952 at the age of 72, and wa...

The work of Ernst Pfiffner is never an end in itself. It is first and foremost exegetic, a meditation, a sermon, an annunciation and realization of the word and omnipresence of God. The composer Pfiffner is not interested in the slightest in belonging to any of the schools of New Music or bowing to any of their dogmas. He writes tonally, atonally or serially according to the requirements of wha...

Fabian Müller

Klavierkonzert, Labyrinth, Suite für Violoncello und Streichorchester, Lied des Einsamen

Fabian Müller is one of the leading Swiss composers of his generation. His music is created wholly out of an intuitive freedom. His starting point is rarely a concept developed by the intellect for the music to follow. His works thus encompass modernistic and traditional elements. He feels no duty to any particular school or dogma, seeing his composing as a voyage of discovery undertaken by an ...
