Biography
* 28. 03. 1924, † 08. 11. 2013.

Arthur Furer was born in Worb, a village close to the Swiss capital of Berne. He graduated from the cantonal teacher's seminar and subsequently studied violin, school singing and choir leading at the conservatory in Berne, his training was rounded off by studies at Berne University. He initially worked as the solo violist with the Bernese Chamber Orchestra, as violinist in the symphony orchestra and as a multifaceted chamber musician, also together with the chamber ensemble of Radio Berne.
From 1952 until 1988 Furer was responsible for the musical training of students at the Marzili Seminar in Berne, he also lead various established choirs.
As a result of these comprehensive activities, within which the compositions of his own work played a key role, Furer was awarded the Pro-Arte Foundation Prize in 1966 and the music prize offered by the canton of Berne in 1984.
Further awards were attributed at various international competitions, the greatest accolade was awarded at the 6th Concorso lnternazionale di Musica "G.B. Viotti" 1955 of Vercelli (I).
"Free from the ties of any particular contemporary school I search, with every composition, for an appropriate style which suits the content and myself at that time." (Arthur Furer)
