Swiss composers and foreign composers who have worked in Switzerland are featured in the exhibition, entitled "Between Denges and Denzy".

These are the first words - referring to two villages in Canton Vaud - of "A Soldier’s Tale", composed in 1918 in Lausanne by Igor Stravinsky and based on a text by the Swiss writer, Charles Ferdinand Ramuz.

The exhibition, consisting mostly of documents and photographs belonging to the Paul Sacher Foundation in Basel, has been organised by the Swiss Musicians’ Association to mark its 100th anniversary.
