Workshop in Bern and Adelboden


Zum zweiten Mal fand im März im Rahmen der ORPHEUS Swiss Chamber Music Competition ein Workshop-Wochenende in Bern und Adelboden statt. Die drei Preisträgerensembles der ORPHEUS Competition 2018 (Kebyart Ensemble, Percussion CYTi und Opalio Trio) kamen mit den jungen KomponistInnen Nemanja Radivojevic, Léo Albisetti und Aram Hovhannisyan in der Hochschule der Künste in Bern zusammen, um ihre Zusammenarbeit für die drei Auftragswerke aufzugleisen und zu intensivieren. Nach der musikalischen Arbeit reisten alle gemeinsam in die Berge - nach Adelboden, dem Sitz des Swiss Chamber Music Festival. Für die jungen KünstlerInnen war es eine erste Begegnung mit dem Austragungsort und den Verantwortlichen des Festivals. Der gemeinsame Weg ans Swiss Chamber Music Festival 2019 ist vorbereitet.

ORPHEUS - Swiss Chamber Music Competition

The ORPHEUS competition was established in 1974. It is a competition for young musicians, today exclusively for chamber music ensembles. About 300 prizewinners have been supported so far - , many of them became leading musicians in Switzerland, in Europe and worldwide. Since 2011 the concerts of the prizewinners have taken place at the Swiss Chamber Music Festival in Adelboden, which was established specifically for this purpose. The Musikdorf Ernen started a series of concerts with selected prizewinner ensembles in 2018. The Swiss Cultural Foundation Pro Helvetia plays an important role by making it possible that new works are commissioned for the three first prize winners. ORPHEUS is organised as an association under the laws of Switzerland and has its seat in Zürich.
