Born in 1935 in Berne, Wyttenbach studied in Berne and Paris. He lives in Basle, where he teaches contemporary music and piano at the Music Academy. He directs the Ensemble der Internationalen Gesellschaft für Neue Musik (IGNM) Basle and, with Heinz Holliger and Rudolf Kelterborn, organizes the Basle Music Forum symphony concert. He conducts and plays with many well-known orchestras and ensembles. He has made several grammophone recordings. His CD of orchestral and choral works by Giacinto Scelsi was awarded the French and the Belgian "Grand Prix du Disque" and the prize of the German Music Critics. "My first published works tackled post-Webern compositional technique as well as the works of the late Stravinsky. These early instrumental and vocal pieces already possess a definite gestual-dramatic character. This theatrical component has been developed further in my later attempts. I use musical and scenic means in an attempt at showing existential problems." (Jürg Wyttenbach)
