Ensemble Fur Neue Musik Zurich
Label: Hat [now] ART
Released in: Switzerland
"If only Fanny Mendelssohn or Clara Schumann had been fortunate enough to have a group like the Ensemble Für Neue Musik Zürich (ENMZ) from Switzerland champion their works! While the days when women composers hovered in the shadow of their male colleagues are thankfully over, the playing field is perhaps not yet entirely even. In the 1980s, the ENMZ (whose members are all men) realized that music by contemporary female composers was not receiving its rightful attention, so they decided to help remedy the situation. For several decades the group has been performing and recording pieces of diverse aesthetic styles by talented women composers, commissioning new w orks and supporting the women in their artistic endeavors."-Vivien Schweitzer

• Show Bio for Nicola Romano
"Nicola Romano, born in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1974. From an early age, Nicola has developed a close association with chamber music, which has since become the centre of his musical orbits. For many years, he has performed concerts with Lucerne-based Dreilindenquartett as well as with the ONYX Quartet and the Basel String Quartet.Since 2004, Nicola has been a member of the "ensemble für neue musik zürich", which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year. With "klangcombi", a quintet dedicated to innovative Swiss folk music, he has found the perfect musical paddling pool, in which he enjoys maximum stylistic freedom and openness. Together with LAUS and the Trabant Echo Orchestra, Nicola has been exploring and experimenting with musical arrangements which straddle the interface between serious and light music. Besides this, he has been busy giving concerts as part of various projects by the Swiss jazz and free improv scene. Nicola also teaches at the Uri School of Music (Musikschule Uri) and at Küsnacht High School (Kantonsschule Küsnacht)."-Beat Keller Website (http://beatkeller.com/pages/releases/beat-keller-.-tom-johnson-.-joseph-kudirka-ndash-string-trios-11.php)
