The past two seasons, the Camerata Schweiz Sofa Concerts have juxtaposed traditional Swiss instruments with their equivalent from another continent. First, it was alphorn meets didgeridoo, then we had tango to the strains of the Schwyzerörgeli and bandoneon accordions. The third Sofa Concert will see the dulcimer come face-to-face with its Chinese cousin, the guzheng. Together with their soloists, the Camerata Schweiz goes off on a thrilling journey beyond musical boundaries. And as an added extra, the musicians and conductor will sit down and give insights into the music and background information on the instruments and their culture.
The Camerata Schweiz is an orchestra featuring musicians drawn from all regions of Switzerland, helping to promote cultural exchange within the country whilst carrying the cultural banner for Switzerland as an open, welcoming nation at the heart of Europe.
