Notes & Reviews:
Of Jewish parentage, the Hungarian-born composer János Tamas (1936-95), who fled to Switzerland following the 1956 Hungarian uprising, started making an impact on Swiss musical life beginning in the 1960s. Amongst his wide-ranging musical activities as music pedagogue, conductor and pianist, composing came to occupy an increasingly central position. His legacy consists of a compositional uvre of about 120 works in nearly all genres. The chamber-music compositions on the present Oehms CD, performed by Tomas Dratva & friends, cover all periods of the life work of Mr. Tamas.
