Biography
Robert Suter was born in St. Gallen. He studied music at Basel Conservatory and became a teacher for music theory in 1943 (teachers: Paul Baumgartner, piano; Gustav Guldenstein, Walter Muller von Kulm and Ernst Mohr, theory: Walter Geiser, composition). He studied further at the new music summer school at Darmstadt under Wolfgang Fortner and Ernst Krenek, as well as studying under Wladimir Vogel in the early 50's. Between 1945 and 1950 he taught theory at Bern Conservatory, following which he taught composition, analysis, counterpoint, harmony and improvisation at 'Musikakademie der Stadt Basel' (Basel Academy of Music), before retiring in the autumn of 1984. From 1954 to 1964 he was president of the Basel ISCM (International Society for Contemporary Music). For several years he worked on a freelance basis for Radio Basel as musical editor of 'Montagsstudio'. He publishes occasionally. For decades he has been an amateur jazz musician.
