    Murten Classics

    The Murten Classics is a small yet excellent festival for classical music with a very individual flair. This year, the SUISA Serenade will take place on 27 August at the Murten Classics. Enframed by works by Arcangelo Corelli and Ernest Bloch, four young Swiss composers will take centre stage, premiering under the direction of Christoph-Mathias Mueller, artistic director of the Murten Classics.

    Before the concert, at a talk open to the public, the young composers will describe and reflect on the genesis of their works, composed especially for this Serenade.

    SUISA is a sponsoring partner of the Serenade at the Murten Classics.
