UBS Culture Foundation supports the ongoing work of composers in the field of contemporary classical music. In addition we back professional instrumental and vocal ensembles, which make a substantial impact on the interpretation and renewal of contemporary art music through commissioned works and premieres.

We support

  • Swiss premieres of significant new works by Swiss composers
  • Commissioned works by Swiss composers in the context of concert programs in Switzerland

We do not support

  • Non-Swiss ensembles or composers without permanent residence in Switzerland
  • Composers, orchestras or ensembles that have received support from the UBS Culture Foundation within the last three years
  • Students and projects developed in the context of education
  • The acquisition of musical instruments, the production of sound carriers, or the edition of musical works
