(1837 - 1891)

Born in Zurich in 1837, the son of a department store owner and city councillor, Albert Fäsy studied at the Leipzig Conservatory and in Dresden, but won no great success in his lifetime.

Orchestral Music
Fäsy’s orchestral works, too expansive perhaps for contemporary performance, include a remarkably dramatic picture of the voyage of Columbus and a celebration of the Swiss victory over Austria at Sempach in the 14th century. These go some way towards vindicating the reputation of a composer long forgotten, and unheard even in his own time.
