(b 1907 )

The Swiss composer Jean Daetwyler was a pupil of Vincent d’Indy in Paris. In a long career he taught at the Sion Conservatoire, and since his death in 1994 at Sierre his life has been commemorated in a permanent exhibition.

Orchestral Music

For Daetwyler nature was important. This affinity is shown in his Dialogue avec la nature, with its use of the alphorn, an instrument for which he also wrote a concerto in spite of its limitation to only five notes.
