Gérard Wyss | piano
Gérard Wyss studied with Paul Baumgartner at the Music Academy in Basle, where he now teaches Lied interpretation and chamber music for graduate soloists. His preference for playing in partnership turned into a vocation, and soon he was playing with Pierre Fournier and Arthur Grumiaux.
Today he is in great demand as an accompanist and chamber musician, performing in venues all over Europe, Canada, the USA and in Japan. His song partners include Edith Mathis, Cecilia Bartoli, Nicolai Gedda, Wolfgang Holzmair and Georg Nigel. Many instrumentalists appreciate his experience and sensitivity in chamber music, among them cellists Heinrich Schiff and Antonio Meneses and violinist Raphaël Oleg. Gérard Wyss is a regular guest at international festivals including Salzburg, Montreux, Stresa, Lucerne and Berlin. He has also taken part in numerous recordings for radio and record companies (Denon, Novalis, Pan Classics, Philips, Tudor).
