Swiss composer Beat Furrer is one of the most important composers of his generation. He has received numerous commissions for operas and other works for ensembles, orchestras and music theatre. He co-founded what is now one of Europe's leading contemporary music ensembles, Klangforum Wien, which he still conducts.

The Eco Ensemble (led by conductor David Milnes) is a new ensemble-in-residence at UC Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT) and the Department of Music. This premiere group is comprised of prominent Bay Area musicians who are passionate about exploring and performing contemporary works. Its mission is to enrich and serve the Bay Area’s cultural life through the creation, performance, and dissemination of new music by composers from Berkeley and around the world.
