Music-scenic biography by Armin Brunner

The famous musician and conductor Armin Brunner, who for many years was also head of the department for music and theatre of the Swiss television, created a very special art form, which combines texts about the composer’s life with music from his works. This shows his musical development throughout his life. It is thus a suiting art form for our goal of bringing Gion Antoni Derungs closer to a large audience. These biographies will be presented in Vella GR, Lucern and Zurich as full-length events and in Bern and Constance in shortened versions right before the concerts.
