René Wohlhauser presents Kasamarówa, vocal chamber works performed by the Duo Simolka-Wohlhauser. René Wohlhauser is an internationally active and creative composer and interpreter. In 2013, the label NEOS began its CD series "Wohlhauser Edition". Wohlhauser (composition, piano, baritone, conductor) was born in 1954 and grew up in Brienz, Switzerland. Experiences as a rock and jazz musician, accompanist and improviser have accompanied and continue to accompany his principal activity as a composer of contemporary art music (including chamber, orchestral and stage works). He received his training at the Basel Academy of Music, studying with Robert Suter, Jacques Wildberger and Thomas Kessler, also attending composition courses with Kazimierz Serocki, Mauricio Kagel, Herbert Brün and Heinz Holliger. Duo Simolka-Wohlhauser, from Basel, specializes in the interpretation of contemporary vocal music and carries out annual tours of Switzerland and various major European cities (e.g. Basel, Bern, Zurich, Stuttgart, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Paris, Salzburg). Its fundamental concern is to bring current vocal works from the field of contemporary music to the stage, and thus give the genre new impulses for further development.
