ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Swiss composer Joseph Lauber was born in Ruswil (near Lucerne). Shortly after his birth his family moved to the canton of Neuchâtel. There his father gave the young Joseph the opportunity to perform as a pianist in his light orchestra. The support of a patron made it possible for him to study music at the Zurich Conservatory where he studied voice, harmony, composition and music history; and took organ lessons with Gustav Weber and piano lessons with Fritz Blumer and Robert Freud. In 1884 Lauber sought to further refine his technique and moved to Munich to study with the celebrated organist and pedagogue Joseph Rheinberger. A few years later he travelled to Paris to study composition with Louis Diémer and Jules Massenet at the Paris Music Conservatoire Following a number of years as organist in the canton of Neuchâtel he taught at the Zurich Conservatory (1899-1901) and then settled in Geneva where he was a leading light of the city's musical scene.
His activities as the first 'Kapellmeister' at the Grand Theatre in Geneva and as a teacher at the Geneva Conservatory marked these years. He remained there until his death in 1952. Among his students for composition and harmony was Franc Martin. One of his greatest services to the musical life in Switzerland was the co-founding of the Swiss Musicians' Association (Schweizerischer Tonkünstlerverein) in 1899, which premiered a number of his compositions. A prolific composer, his output includes over 200 works in nearly every genre including an opera, an oratorio, 5 symphonies, 5 concertos, and a large catalogue of chamber music for a variety of ensembles. His Ode Lyrique was composed for the occasion of the Fédéral Singing Happening of Neuchâtel (1912). His last composition the oratorio Le Drame de Saul de Tarse ( 1951) was dedicated to the arrival of apostle Paul to Europ. Joseph Lauber was Honoris doctor causa of Neuchâtel university. This cd covers the harp’s compositions of Joseph Lauber. The Fantasia-Quintet for flute, violin,viola,cello and harp, Danses Médievales and Petite Suite for flute and harp, Sonatine for fagot and harp, and a solo piece Suite Printanière for harp. Joseph Lauber greatly admired the music of Debussy, Fauré and Duparc. His compositions combine the harmonies and textures of the French Impressionists with the formal structures of the German Romantics – with the influence of a dose of local Swiss colour
