This volume, published on the occasion of Paul Sacher's one-hundredth birthday, contains five essays dealing with his various fields of activity as a conductor, a champion of early music, a mediator between the old and the new, a musical policy-maker, and not least of all a founder of institutions, together with five interviews from the 1970s to 1990s. The scholarly articles, all drawn from rich source materials, are complemented by Sacher's personal self-assessment to form a multi-faceted picture of this influential figure, whose impact is felt everywhere, not only in the music history of twentieth-century Switzerland. Rounding off the volume is an up-to-date list of works commissioned by Sacher and a complete discography of performances recorded under his baton on LP, CD, and shellac disc.
