René Wohlhauser (composition, baritone, piano, conductor) was born in 1954 and grew up in Brienz, Switzerland. Experiences as a rock and jazz musician, lied 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). In recent years, Wohlhauser has repeatedly undertaken tours in Europe as a pianist, singer, and conductor with the Duo Simolka -- Wohlhauser and his own Ensemble Polysono. In 2013, Neos began its CD series "Wohlhauser Edition". He teaches composition, music theory, and improvisation at the Basel Academy of Music (and until 1991 at the Lucerne Academy) and as Professor at the Kalaidos Music Academy. The Ensemble Polysono and the Duo Simolka -- Wohlhauser from Basle specialize in the interpretation of current contemporary music. They go on tour each year in Switzerland and several larger cities in Europe (including Basle, Berne, Zurich, Stuttgart, Munich, Hamburg, Weimar, Erfurt, Detmold, Berlin, Paris, London, and Salzburg). Works for various ensemble combinations, performed by the Ensemble Polysono, Egidius Streiff, the Duo Simolka -- Wohlhauser, and the Treiber-Sontòn Caflisch-Müllenbach Trio.
