Happy 60th birthday Beat Furrer!

Reading time: 1 min. Beat Furrer

Happy Birthday Beat Furrer – composer, conductor, educator, and founder of Klangforum Wien and, together with Ernst Kovacic, “impuls” academy – and once more our warmest congratulations for winning the prestigious Grand Austrian State Prize [Großer Österreichischer Staatspreis]!

Also we’d like to make mention of Daniel Ender’s brand new book “Metamorphosen des Klanges”, a study of Beat Furrer’s compositional oeuvre that was presented on 4 December 2014 in Vienna.

Ö1 recently dedicated a programme titled “Beat Furrer - Der Alchemist” to the composer. Listen to almost 7 hours of music, most of which was composed by Beat Furrer, on Ö1.
