Fundaziun Gion Antoni Derungs


The Fundaziun Gion Antoni Derungs was founded in 2014 in Chur. The goal of the foundation is to secure and promote the distribution of the works of the most significant contemporary Rhaetian composer and musician Gion Antoni Derungs. The foundation contributes in stabilizing his reputation as the leading Swiss composer of modern times.

This is mainly achieved through:
  • The indexing and publication of the compositions
  • The circulation and distribution of his works in Switzerland and abroad
  • The expansion and maintenance of the electronic information database
  • The support of the formation of an archive by the Cantonal Library of Grison
  • The promotion of concerts with his compositions and other events
  • The counselling, journalistic, and material support of concerts with his compositions
  • The fostering of relationships and exchange between interpreters, sponsors and followers of his work

The foundation is a non-profit institution and does not follow any commercial interests. The activities of the foundation are financed through project contributions and contributions by the association.
