Catalogue of the Albert Jenny collection completed

Saturday, June 16, 2018

Within the long-term cataloguing project in the Lucerne Central and University Library, the musical sources from the collection of Albert Jenny (1912-1992) have been recently catalogued. The slightly more than 300 database entries can now be consulted online.

The musician from Solothurn is of great importance to central Switzerland. In fact, he was not only a composer, but also a teacher at the Capuchin College St. Fidelis in Stans and at the Conservatory of Lucerne, as well as choir and orchestra conductor in various locations. Amongst others, between 1946 and 1962 he conducted the choir of the International Music Festival Lucerne. Furthermore, Jenny was Kapellmeister in the monastery of St. Leodegar (Hofkirche), also in Lucerne.

The compositional oeuvre includes virtually all genres, from choral and orchestral music through chamber music works to stage and festival music. However, his main focus was on sacred and liturgical vocal music.
