    **************New release************

    A sensational rediscovery: Joseph Lauber (1864 – 1952), world premiere recording of his symphonies!

    Schweizer Fonogramm proudly announces the release of Joseph Lauber’s first two symphonies which the Swiss conductor Kaspar Zehnder has freed from their shadowy existence in the library archives of the University of Lausanne. These brigde building compositions between the German and the French culture of Switzerland are performed by the Sinfonie Orchester Biel Solothurn under the direction of Kaspar Zehnder.
