Bio

The Swiss pianist and composer Luzia von Wyl is one of those musicians who is eager to bring their projects to the stage themselves, and she leads her own ensemble, the Luzia von Wyl Ensemble, all of whose compositions she herself writes. Along with jazz, her passion is for contemporary music - and all the realms in between. Besides her own projects she regularly writes music for other musicians and ensembles as well.

Luzia gets invited to festivals in Switzerland and abroad: To the Swiss Days Dubai, the Lucerne Festival, the Schaffhauser Jazzfestival, the BeJazz Winterfestival and the Jazzwerkstatt Bern, just to name a few.

Born in 1985, Luzia earns her baccalaureate degree in 2004 in Lucerne. She then goes on to study piano and composition at the Bern University of the Arts, the Zurich University of the Arts, and the University of Music in Lucerne, completing her studies in 2011 with master’s degrees in both piano and composition. Her teachers include Dieter Ammann, Florian Hoelscher and Kaspar Ewald.
