In 1994, the organizing committee of CIEM decided to forego all instrumental and vocal competitions in favour of organizing its 2nd conducting competition.

This in honour of the founder of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Ernest Ansermet. For the first time preliminary examinations took place in New York, Tokyo, and Geneva. The CIEM jury awarded the first prize to young Polish conductor Grzegorz Nowak.

Background information

Switzerland is a small alpine nation shaped and influenced by great cultural cross-currents that have swept through Europe over centuries. Out of elements of diversity, the people of this country have forged a distinctly Swiss identity. And music is one of its most eloquent expressions. "Musica Helvetica" explores different facets of music in Switzerland from its earliest beginnings to the latest works of modern Swiss composers, from folk music to rock and jazz. This historical series span the years 1973 to 1998. These recordings are not available.
