Impressions and
Media reports

As part of its three premiere concerts in 2021, the Swiss Symphonic Wind Orchestra delighted audiences in Zurich and Frauenfeld with the concert programme "Divertimento". The first SSWO commissioned composition, "Heavy" by young Swiss composer Sandra Stadler, was very well received.

Selected voices on the SSWO Tour 2021:

"After the interval, the SSWO stepped up its game once again with two masterpieces. Waespi's very densely and complexly composed "Divertimento" was a grandiose finale. The SSWO once again impressed with its virtuosity, sensitive music-making and great liveliness, always emanating from Niki Wüthrich on the conductor's podium."

Denis Laile, Conductor
in the trade journal UNISONO

"Sound, colours, musicality, the commitment of each individual could be read in the faces and heard in the sound throughout the concert. You led your orchestra with aplomb - congratulations, I was very grateful to be there!" 

Monika Schütz, Conductor and Co-President of the Zurich Wind Music Association

"Congratulations on this fantastic concert. The SSWO is an absolute asset to the scene. It was truly a divertimento to hear you." 

Roland Vetsch,
Board of the St.Gallen Wind Music Association
