Studio Ernest Ansermet – Maison de la Radio – Geneva
SCC wishes to support the future generations of 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 Schmidt from the Hagen Quartet, Ruth Killius and Thomas Zehetmair from the Zehetmair Quartet, Hatto Beyerle from the Alban Berg Quartet as well as the world famous oboist, composer and conductor Heinz Holliger.
From 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.
In 2019, the Academy will be again directed by 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, and by DANIEL HAEFLIGER, artistic director of SWISS CHAMBER CONCERTS and professor for chamber music at the University of Music Lausanne/Sion.
