Joseph-Maurice Weder_SWAAC '13 UK Tour

The Swiss Ambassador’s Award concert series 2013 saw young Swiss pianist Joseph-Maurice Weder play to enthusiastic audiences in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. The concerts marked the UK debut of Weder, who played spirited renditions of Schubert, Brahms and Swiss composer Heinz Holliger. They were organised by the Embassy of Switzerland, in collaboration with the Swiss Cultural Fund in Britain and the Swiss Consulates in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. This was the first time that a Swiss Ambassador’s Award Concert has been held in Northern Ireland, where it featured as part of the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queen’s, together with screenings of Swiss films.February
