About Bechtler

     The Bechtler Ensemble gives concerts in intimate settings as well as in museums and educational institutions. During many of these concerts, which are usually about one hour in length, slides of the art from the Bechtler collection as well as images from the art in its original setting in the Zürich home, are shown.

 

     Musical compositions are chosen from the same time period as the art and, before each piece, a brief explanation is given as to why the composer and artist were paired. This multi-disciplinary approach seems to greatly enhance the experience of the audience. The concerts are described as: “exciting,” “de-stressing,” “fun and ‘informative ” to name a few. Tanja, who is the granddaughter of Hans and Bessie Bechtler, adds to the mix colorful anecdotes about growing up amidst a house full of art.
