Ahead Into the Past

Where Does the Collegium Novum Zürch Stand Today?

Susanne Kübler
The Collegium Novum was founded in 1993 as a successor to Paul Sacher's Collegium Musicum Zürich, with the aim and ambition of becoming one of the leading ensembles for new music. Susanne Kübler here situates the Collegium Novum in a European context and examines its specific profile under its current director, Jens Schubbe. She focusses not just on the present, but also on its years under its previous artistic directors Michael Haefliger (1993-1999), Patrick Müller (1999-2005) and Christian Fausch (2005-2010).
