Heinz Holliger wins the 2nd Swiss Music Prize

The great accolade that is the Swiss Music Price, has been awarded to the oboist, conductor and composer Heinz Holliger. The 2015 winner, currently on tour in Japan, reacted to his award via video link-up at the awards evening held at the Basel Cathedral attended by Federal Councillor Alain Berset.

Appointed on the proposal of the Federal Jury music among 15 nominees, Heinz Holliger receives an amount of CHF 100,000.

 

Before the ceremony took place on the 11th September, we were lucky enough to talk to last year's winner Franz Treichler on the Mid Morning Mix to find out how his life has changed since winning the same prize one year ago.
