Eliana Burki: Konzert für Alphorn und Orchester

Beautiful and exceptional Swiss alphorn music artist Eliana Burki just died at age 39 from a malignant brain tumor. What a loss. Her funky alphorn style crossed musical domains with ease and artistic fun that became her lasting creative contribution to a traditional instrument.

Here she is in the more serious role of alphorn soloist with the Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra.

Thank you for the music, Eliana.
