Trees are omnipresent!

Yesterday it was snowing here in Bern and guess what did I see?

Yes it was a Tree:

…but actually there was not just one

do you understand? TREES are omnipresent!

And maybe we shouldn’t cut the TREE!

As it would be a future without fun for your son:


Francois Pantillon (b.1928) comes from a prominent family of musicians from La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, and received his initial training in violin from his father. After his diploma he joined the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, where he graduatesd with highest honours and was awarded the Van Hall Prize for violin. He hen turned to conducting skills, working with Paul van Kempen at the Academia Chigi di Siena, with Franco Ferrara in Hilversum, and with Herbert von Karajan at the Lucerne Festival. After engaging him as leader of the Festival Orchestra, von Karajan soon encouraged him to conduct.

From 1972 to 1997 he was the conductor and artistic manager of the Thuner Stadtorchester, with whom he performed more than 200 concerts. In 1965 he founded the professional chamber orchestra Capella Bernensis with whom he toured Switzerland and other European countries on several occasions.

The multi-faceted artist is frequently invited abroad as guest conductor, having toured France, Italy, Spain, England, Holland, Belgium and Poland, where he was invited to conduct various Philharmonic Orchestras every year from 1973 to 1988. In London he celebrated successes with the New Philharmonia Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Spezializing in the direction of oratorios, he is recognized as an outstanding interpreter of classic and romantic literature, but is equally devoted to modern composers, having performed Swiss and Polish premieres of Arthur Honegger, Frank Martin and Heinrich Sutermeister works in particular.

Pantillon is also a noted composer. His first oratorio, Clameurs du Monde (Clamors of the World), written in 1986, was very warmly received and noted immediately in the musical encyclopedia, Oratorien der Welt (Oratorios of the World), by Prof. Dr. Kurt Pahlen of Vienna. It was presented on Swiss television and performed by Barbara Hendricks and the Slovakian Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Oliver Donanyi throughout the major cities of Switzerland in 1991 as part of a national celebration commemorating the 700th anniversary of the Swiss Confederation. For the same jubilee the city of Bern produced for the first time his opera, Die Richterin (the Lady Judge), with numerous performances.

Soon thereafter he turned to composing chamber music, notably a sextet Gaudium and the Trio 1029 for violin, cello and piano, a song cycle Instants…, a brilliant cantata for chamber choir and piano, entitled Daphne, a Missa Brevis di San Pedro, and a Sinfonietta for orchestra. His greatest success, however, came with his Christmas oratorio, Bethlehem, which debuted in Bern in 1995, and was subsequently performed in Rome and in many Swiss cities, including Geneva. For the Millenium, his Te Deum 2000 premiered at Bern Cathedral as part of a Three Te Deum concert that also presented Haendel’s Dettinger Te Deum and Bruckner’s Te Deum.

The style of Francois Pantillon lies in the convergence of tonality with polytonality. He pursues expressiveness in modernism through a spectrum of color in which the avant-gard mixes with post-impressionist harmonies. His melodies are polished and his orchestration refined. Pantillon himself says, ” Mon souhait est d’atteindre le coeur de l’auditeur en le remplissant d’ombre et de lumière. Pour moi, la composition est un acte de réflexion et d’amour, qui tend la main à l’humanité. ” (My wish is to reach the heart of the listener in filling it with shadow and light. For me, composition is an act of reflection and of love, which stretches out its hand to humanity.)

HOPE – Tree Frog (DiKi Records)

Tree Frog, or Tree Toad, any of several kinds of climbing frogs or toads. Most live in trees, but some inhabit smaller plants, and a few species are ground-dwellers. Tree frogs are found in most parts of the world. They vary in length from less than one inch (2.5 cm) to more than four inches (10 cm).

Tree frogs have pads at the ends of their fingers and toes. These pads help in climbing because they are rough and are covered with a sticky secretion. Some tree frogs have claw-shaped fingers and toes, and most kinds have webbed hands, webbed feet, or both. Many tree frogs can change color, usually to match their surroundings. As winter approaches, tree frogs burrow into the humus on the forest floor. Their tissues and body fluids are protected from freezing by glycerol, a type of alcohol made in the frogs’ cells.

Tree frogs are noted for the loudness and variety of their mating calls, made only by the male. Most tree frogs lay their eggs in water. There is variety in their breeding habits, however, especially among tropical American species. Some lay their eggs on leaves overhanging water into which the tadpoles, or larvae, fall after hatching. The tadpoles of certain other species are carried from tree to stream on the back of the male frog. The female of some kinds carries her eggs in a pouch on her back where they hatch and the tadpoles remain until they metamorphose.
