Composition commission issued to Beat Furrer
Münchener Kammerorchester, Germany
Over the past few years the Munich Chamber Orchestra has issued numerous commissions to composers which were performed not only at the premieres in Munich but also at guest appearances of the Munich Chamber Orchestra in many European music centers and festivals. Over the last five years composers like Georg Friedrich Haas, Márton Illés, Mark Andre, Klaus Lang, Bernhard Lang, Roland Moser, Thomas Larcher, Samir Odeh-Tamimi, Nikolaus Brass, Alfred Zimmerlin, Miroslav Srnka, Tigran Mansurian and Salvatore Sciarrino have written works for the Munich Chamber Orchestra and have explored the facets of string sound in extremely disparate ways.
For 2014 and with the support of the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation the Munich Chamber Orchestra will be issuing a composition commission to Beat Furrer.
