Conrad Zwicky

Not about language; instead, about a Zwicky who turned up in my view half an hour ago: Conrad Zwicky, born in 1946, a Swiss violist, organist, and composer (German Wikipedia page here). What caught my eye was the release of an album by the ZHdK Strings, Rudolf Koelman, and Duncan McTier with three compositions:

Antonin Dvorak, Serenade for Strings in E major, Op. 22
Conrad Zwicky, Vier Orchesteretüden für Streicher
Giovanni Bottesini, Grand Duo Concertant for Violin, Double Bass and Strings

( ZHdK is Die Zürcher Hochshule der Künste (the Zurich University of the Arts).)

Giovanni Bottesini(1821-1869) was an Italian Romantic composer, conductor, and double bass virtuoso. I assume you know about Antonin Dvořák.

Now to listen to the music.
