About

The album Hymne ŕ la beauté brings together seldom heard gems of chamber music in the delightful formation of voice, violin and piano – passionately performed by the aspiring and outstanding Swiss artists Sonja Leutwyler (mezzo-soprano), Astrid Leutwyler (violin) and Benjamin Engeli (piano), who are among the most versatile musicians of their generation and have long-established reputations within Switzerland and abroad. This programme of discoveries features captivating works by Louis Spohr, Johannes Brahms, Charles Ives, Camille Saint-Saëns, Felix Petyrek, Czesław Marek and Ottorino Respighi. On a special commission for this CD, the Swiss composer Martin Wettstein has composed the piece Hymne ŕ la beauté (Hymn to beauty) for mezzo-soprano, violin and piano after a poem by Charles Baudelaire.
