This recording presents an exciting crosssection of works by Argovia composers (Switzerland) who have been unjustly neglected in the concert hall. This is probably due in part to the fact that many Swiss composers were committed to a somewhat conservative neoclassical style, which was vehemently rejected by the avantgarde, particularly after the Second World War. From a historical distance this estimation is changing. All the works date from the postwar years, are characterized by a moderate style, primarily influenced by tonality, clear in form, yet varied and distinctive in their compositional structure. the argovia philharmonic has used its 50th anniversary as an opportunity to devote itself to its musical roots. This CD is a live recording of the official gala concert on 28 April 2013.
