Chamber music times three. Switzerland boasts an unbroken interest in that which is ‘contemporary’. A well-known composer with a well-earned reputation, Beat Furrer presents chamber music spanning 20 years: a review of selected works.

Another set of world-first recordings of chamber music by Swiss-Hungarian János Tamás forms the other major component of this disc, an overview of the life of the composer.

And finally, the fruits of the “pre-art” project: a Swiss-initiated cultural exchange with musicians and composers from Eastern Europe. Many-layered insights into the almost-experimental. All recordings made in collaboration with Radio SRF 2 Kultur.
