Swiss pianist Sebastian Issler is finalist of the International Schubert Competition Dortmund 2018, semi-finalist of the International Vocal Competition ’s-Hertogenbosch 2019 and scholarship holder of LIEDBasel 2019. From 2009 to 2012, he received several awards of the Swiss Youth Music Competition, including first prizes in piano trio and art song.

 

His passion for chamber music led him to begin his studies with Eckart Heiligers, pianist of the «Trio Jean Paul», at the Zurich University of the Arts. In 2017, he completed his first Master’s Degree with distinction.

 

Early on he specialised in song interpretation and continued his studies with Christoph Berner. He graduated with a second Master’s Degree and distinction in art song and Lied accompaniment from Zurich University of the Arts in 2020.

 

Currently, Sebastian Issler is completing his Artist Diploma at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London. He is one of the few selected musicians to attend the postgraduate «Piano Accompaniment Programme» and to work directly with and learn from distinguished artists of the field such as Julius Drake and Graham Johnson.

 

Master classes with Benjamin Appl, Joseph Breinl, Brigitte Fassbaender, Werner Güra, Thomas Hampson, Robert Holl, Simon Lepper, Malcolm Martineau, Ann Murray, David Selig, Jard van Nes, and others complement his professional education.

 

As a Lied accompanist he regularly performs in prestigious places and at festivals, including the Tonhalle Zurich, the Abbey Library of Saint Gall, various European cities, the Origen Festival of Culture, the International Lied Festival Zeist, LIEDBasel, and the Vocal Art Zurich Festival.

 

Sebastian Issler lives in London and Zurich.
