ABOUT THE ARTIST

"A wonderful musician with an amazingly brilliant technique"  Star-Cellist Gautier Capuçon

Since launching his international career with winning the prestigious Swiss Ambassador's Award in London and his debut recital at London's Wigmore Hall in 2013, the Swiss pianist Joseph-Maurice Weder has continued to capture the attention of critics and audiences.

In recent seasons he has performed at some of the most prestigious concert halls around the world including Carnegie Hall in New York, Berliner Philharmonie, Musikverein Vienna, Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Wigmore Hall London, Tonhalle Zurich and Wiener Konzerthaus. Furthermore he was on tour several times in South America (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Uruguay) and in Europe (England, Germany, Scotland, Italy, Spain, Wales, Norway, Switzerland).

Joseph-Maurice Weder entered the Musikhochschule Basel at the age of 12, under the guidance of Prof. Adrian Oetiker. From 2011 until 2015 he studied with Prof. Filippo Gamba. He attended master classes with Piotr Anderszewski, Dmitri Alexeev, Prof. Homero Francesch, Prof. Gérard Wyss and Louis Lortie.

Besides his concert activity, his great passion is teaching. In 2017 he was appointed to the piano faculty at the College in Aarau (Switzerland). Furthermore he was invited as a Guest Professor to give masterclasses at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (Wales) , Universidad Nacional de Música in Lima (Peru), Komitas State Conservatory in Yerevan (Armenia), Universidad EAFIT in Medellín (Colombia), Music Academy in Dnipropetrovsk (Ukraine), "Instituto de Artes da Universidade Estadual Paulista" de São Paulo (Brazil) and at the Fundación Musical Simon Bolivar („EL SISTEMA“) in Caracas (Venezuela).
