Our history

Since our creation 5 years ago, we have organized 25 concerts at the Salle de musique de La Chaux-de-Fonds, three at the Salle Faller of the Conservatoire de musique neuchâtelois, two evenings at Club 44, two masterclasses and as many pre-concerts in collaboration with the Conservatoire de musique neuchâtelois, as well as a pre-concert in collaboration with the Collège musical de la Ville de La Chaux-de-Fonds.

With repertoires stretching from the 16th to the 21st century, our concerts range from the classical to the unexpected.

The Perspectives Musiques association is a non-profit organization, constituted in accordance with articles 60 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code.

The current committee is composed by the followings.

Frédéric Eggimann president
Leaving his scientific studies at EPFL in mid-course, Frédéric Eggimann came to music at the age of 20, first as an interpreter (piano) and then as a teacher (theory). Organizing musical events since 1994, he founded Perspectives Musiques in 2019, originally called “Tous pour la musique”.

Marie Boinay treasurer
Passionate about music and singing, and keen to promote the cultural and artistic influence of her canton, Marie Boinay is a joyful and enthusiastic member of the Perspectives Musiques committee, working to offer music lovers and the curious a rich, attractive and innovative season.

Albert Burki secretary
A doctor in the past, Albert Burki played as a non-professional violinist in various orchestras, including the Orchestre de Chambre de La Chaux-de-Fonds. With his passion for classical music and his admiration for musicians who thrill us with their playing and interpretation, he supports the Perspectives Musiques committee in its evolution and in the realization of exquisite musical moments.

Our values

Excellence, accessibility, transmission and openness are our four core values. They are most important to us.

We aim to cultivate and share these values by offering concerts of exceptional quality, working daily to make them accessible to all, encouraging the transmission of musical knowledge to future generations, and moving forward with an open mind.

Our vision

Since its founding, our commitment has been rooted in a vision of music as a universal language, capable of transcending social, generational and cultural boundaries and touching hearts and minds, whatever the background, knowledge or financial means of those who place their trust in us.

Created in 2019, the Perspectives Musiques association is a non-profit organization, constituted in accordance with articles 60 et seq. of the Swiss Civil Code.

The current committee is composed by the followings.

Our everyday values

Excellence

The organization of a high-level season begins two or three years before the opening concert. Our commitment to excellence in artistic programming is the backbone of our offering.

Thanks to a generous and cordial welcome, meticulous organization and a venue of exceptional quality, we are gradually forging close and trusting links with the guest artists and the agencies representing them, to offer you the very best.

Accessibility

Our events have to be accessible to everyone, and that starts with the wallet. When you subscribe to our season, you get access to the best performers on the international scene, in a world-renowned venue, for as little as 90 fr.

But accessibility is a plural concept. In our opinion, there are no prerequisites for entering a concert hall and experiencing a happy evening. That’s why we always try to use a language that is both intelligent and welcoming.

Transmission

Through the concerts themselves, we transmit pleasure, emotions and a call to curiosity. But above all, we mean passing on the interpreter’s experience to young trainees. We believe in the value of example, often a source of motivation.

Organizing pre-concerts, masterclasses and informal exchanges with students are just some of the ways to which we give priority. Agendas are busy, but sometimes opportunities occur.

The openness

It sometimes requires stepping out of one’s comfort zone, but is often a source of enrichment. It allows other angles of view to emerge and offers answers to our questions.

To move on from speech to action, we’re hosting on March 27, 2025 an evening event in collaboration with Club 44, a venue for conferences, debates and the exchange of ideas on a wide range of subjects. We’ll be talking about access to music for people with disabilities, and more generally about singularity.
