The signal, the call from mountaintop to mountaintop, and communication from alpine pasture to alpine pasture constitute the origins of yodeling and the alphorn. A love for nature and one's region are to this day the core themes of this special mountain music, instantly recognisable from the first notes.
With this regularly updated special we hope to give a small taste of the variety of this music and to awaken the listener's curiosity.
