SCC also wishes to support the future generations of Swiss musicians as a whole and in this respect, training and professional integration of young musicians is particularly dear to them. Reason for which Daniel Haefliger founded the SWISS CHAMBER ACADEMY, a place of intense teaching and exchange. Since its creation in 2014, the greatest artists of that discipline have taught there : Rainer Schmid from the Hagen Quartet, Ruth Killius and Thomas Zehetmair from the Zehetmair Quartet as well as Hatto Beyerle from the Alban Berg Quartet.
From the now on, the Academy is expanding three-fold: through several training sessions during the academic term, the intervention of great musicians other than quartet members and the reinforcement of a European network – such as the collaboration with the ECMA.
In 2018, the Academy is concentrating on the music of Robert Schumann and will be directed by oboist, conductor and composer HEINZ HOLLIGER, laureate, among others, of the Robert Schumann Prize of the City of Zwickau in 2017 as well as the Swiss Music Prize in 2015.
