Sammlung János Tamás
The Paul Sacher Foundation has taken over the posthumous estate of the Swiss-Hungarian composer János Tamás (1936–1995), thereby expanding its already rich holdings of twentieth-century Hungarian music (Béla Bartók, Antal Doráti, Sándor Veress, György Ligeti, György Kurtág, and Peter Eötvös). The János Tamás Collection encompasses sketches and fair copies for the composer's entire musical output as well as correspondence, sound recordings, program booklets, reviews, and other documentary material. Starting immediately, it will be available for scholarly research in the Foundation's archives on Münsterplatz, Basel.
