Pro Helvetia provides annual grants for the production of sound recordings with international potential. A selection is presented below.
Creating a new repertoire is key to the development and continued existence of a band or a musical project. This is why Pro Helvetia contributes to the production of new works of music. Each year around two dozen applicants – Swiss music groups and labels from the domains of jazz and pop – are awarded a grant. Pro Helvetia also consistently promotes the international distribution as well as live performances of such works. The following list of productions issued over the past few months opens the door to a variety of fascinating musical worlds.
