The ensemble performs in various combinations, and its repertoire includes not only famous and rediscovered works from the Baroque to Modernism but above all, numerous contemporary compositions, many of which were composed for and dedicated to the Swiss Chamber Soloists. They have earned a reputation in particular for performances and radio broadcasts of important contemporary works by Carter, Ferneyhough, Kurtág, Ligeti, Yun, and Zender, as well as world premieres of numerous works by Swiss composers such as Blank, Dayer, Furrer-Münch, Gaudibert, Gubler, Haubensak, Holliger, Käser, Kelterborn, Kessler, Kyburz, Lehmann, Moser, Roth, Schnyder, Tognetti, Wyttenbach, Vassena, and Zimmerlin. Already in its very first year of existence, the soloist ensemble was booked for concerts and tours throughout Europe, the United States, and Australia. Numerous CD and radio recordings and countless concert reviews testify to the first-class reputation of this renowned Swiss ensemble."
