100 Jahre Kaspar Muther: Muther Klänge

100 Jahre Kaspar Muther swissmusic

This album marks the 100th anniversary of Swiss folk music legend Kaspar Muther. Muther (1909-1980) was born into a farming family in Central Switzerland's Canton Lucerne. He soon decided to become a professional folk musician by studying the clarinet while still in his teens. Besides his activities as a folk musician he also played entertaining music of the day. That may explain the variety of his 300 compositions he left, which range from waltzes to foxtrott and one step. Muther's period with his group, the Kapelle Heirassa during the 60ties, marked the top of his career. 100 Jahre Kaspar Muther honours this music legend by presenting original recordings along with Muther interpretations of six well-known Swiss folk groups of today.
