Edition of the Songs

Gion Antoni Derungs’ song creations are extraordinarily extensive and in terms of song genre very diverse. Even though there is an overview of all songs by Gion Antoni Derungs on the website, a work edition which systematically lists all song sheets is missing. The many songs either exist on individual sheets of music or they are scattered over different songbooks. We deem it extremely important to organize these songs and to collect them in books. According to plan, four volumes with each 250 pages are to be published in 2015 for Gion Antoni Derungs’ 80th birthday.

Concerts 2015 for Gion Antoni Derungs 80th birthday

We celebrated Gion Antoni Derungs’ 80th birthday in fall 2015. Three major concerts with works by the composer were performed during this anniversary year. The foundation Gion Antoni Derungs honoured this occasion with its own symphony concert.

Symphony concerts Bern, Constance and Zurich

In fall 2015 for Gion Antoni Derungs 80th birthday the Südwestdeutsche Philharmonie, under the supervision of Mario Schwarz, performed works by G.A. Derungs in in Bern, Zurich and Constance. A clear emphasis on the conclusion of the start-up phase was shown therewith. The concert in Constance was part of their own series of symphony concerts; the other two concerts were organized and financed by the foundation Gion Antoni Derungs.



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.
