"Beromunster"- this was long the name of the Swiss national radio station. It came to symbolize not just Swiss radio history, but the so-called "spiritual defence of the country during the uneasy neutrality of the Second World War. "Beromunster" was also an educational and cultural institution spreading knowledge throughout the land. Even today- eight years after the Beromunster transmitter was finally turned off- the name still has something mythical about it, far beyond the national borders of Switzerland itself. The Beromunster Suite is an homage to this legendary national radio station. The point of departure for the piece, and the source of Inspiration of its individual movements are the famous jingles and call signs of the former station. Since it was founded in 2007, the Lucerne Jazz Orchestra, directed by David Grottschreiber, has made a name for itself as one of the most fascinating jazz orchestras in Europe. It has given more than 80 concerts at home and abroad, and regularly presents new music by young composers from all across Europe.
