Artist Biographies:

"The Swiss pianist and composer Luzia von Wyl is one of those musicians who is eager to bring their projects to the stage themselves, and she leads her own ensemble, the Luzia von Wyl Ensemble, all of whose compositions she writes herself. Along with jazz, her passion is contemporary music - and all the realms in between. Besides her own projects she regularly writes music for other musicians and ensembles as well. Luzia regularly gets invited to festivals in Switzerland and abroad: To the Swiss Days Dubai, the Lucerne Festival, the Schaffhauser Jazzfestival, the BeJazz Winterfestival and the Jazzwerkstatt Bern, just to name a few. Born in 1985, Luzia earned her baccalaureate degree in 2004 in Lucerne. She then went on to study piano and composition at the Bern University of the Arts, the Zurich University of the Arts, and the University of Music in Lucerne, completing her studies in 2011 with master's degrees in both piano and composition."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Luzia von Wyl's music takes on the precision and the complexity of experience itself. Each piece is precisely crafted for a specific use of her musical resources, employing one to ten instruments. "Spark" has such driving energy and sonic variety that you might not notice Luzia is playing solo, while "Jingle," a lighter episode with great detail, is written for the four contrasting woodwinds. This is a music that seems to engage all the senses in the richness of the moment, whether it's the layered, overlapping rhythms of "Kalimba" or the vivid shifts of "Quints," a wild confluence of sounds and voices from the airplane take-off glissandi and wild vocalics of the bass clarinet to the distorted hoe-down of the violin, all crisscrossing the strange groove of cello, bass and drums. It's a playful, wholly engaging musical world in which individual pieces are like interlocking parts of a single vision."-Stuart Broomer
