Paul Sacher

(1906-1999)

This collection covers Paul Sacher's conducting activities with the Basel Chamber Orchestra, the Collegium Musicum Zurich, the Basel Percussion Ensemble, and his many guest appearances, as well as his membership in musical institutions and committees. It also contains his large collection of manuscripts, whether of works he commissioned or those obtained by donations and purchases, all of which formed the starting-point for the Paul Sacher Foundation.
