About the Artist
Heinz Holliger, born in Bern, Switzerland, forty-two years ago, began his solo career after winning several prestigious European competitions. Today he travels worldwide, averaging 90 to 100 concerts annually. He has performed as soloist with orchestras in Europe, America, and Japan, and participated in many of the great music festivals, including those in Salzburg, Edinburgh, Holland, and Lucerne. His performances last year at New York's Mostly Mozart Festival, which included Mozart's Oboe Quartet with the Tokyo String Quartet, prompted Peter G. Davis of the New York Times to call him "the world's premier oboist." Mr. Holliger's recordings number more than seventy releases, and have won him the Deutsche Schallplatten Preis, the Edison Award, the Grand Prix du Disque, and Grammy nominations. Parallel to his performing career, the artist is a noted composer and advocate of contemporary music. His works, many of them for voice, are known for their complex rhythms, unpitched sounds, and novel effects. Mr. Holliger also teaches oboe at the Freiburg (Germany) Music Academy and conducts a number of concerts in Basel and Zurich each year.
The oboist is often joined in recital by his wife, harpist Ursula Holliger--both artists are making their Ann Arbor debuts this afternoon.
