Man and ear

Composer Felix Baumann

Lisa D. Nolte
Composer Felix Baumann, born in 1961 in Speicher, has been shaping the new music profile of the Zürich University of the Arts for a long while. Whether as a director of studies, or as an artist: it is the man behind the music that interests him. His own, most of the time chamber music oriented production comes into existence in close relationship with performers, and exhibits multiple links to the musical tradition – not in the sense of a conservative outlook, but much rather in this openness which is the prerequisite to a communicative artistic practice.
