In 1973, Benjamin Britten received the first Ernst von Siemens Music Prize. Since then, the foundation, which is based in Zug, has annually awarded this prize, which is endowed with 250,000 euros and is often referred to as the Nobel Prize of music. Equally important is the extensive promotion of young composers, ensembles and festivals for contemporary music. They are selected by a board of trustees, of which our artistic director Ilona Schmiel is a member. Now, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, the festival is looking back on its own history. In Zurich, too, you can hear in two concerts what has been created thanks to the Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation.

In the second concert, pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, who received the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize 2017, will join forces with his colleague Tamara Stefanovich. Individually and together, they will perform works by composers who have been awarded either the grand prize or a sponsorship prize in the past five decades. Before and after the concert, a sound installation by Christian Mason can be discovered in the Vereinssaal; the British composer dived deep into the Foundation's archives for the project and developed something new from what he found there.
