Biography
Born in Lucerne; teacher's Seminar; 10 years of violin and guitar training.
1952 until 1962 in Basel: contact with the Schola Cantorum under Paul Sacher, soloist in performances at the Basel Theatre and with chamber musical ensembles including with the flutists Joseph Bopp, Peter Lukas Graf, Alexandre Magnin, with the violinists Roman Totenberg, Hansheinz Schneeberger, with the cellists Alfred Knüsel, Chu I Bing, Philippe Muller and the Heidelberg Chamber Orchestra.
1963 until 1966 in Santiago de Chile with, amongst others, concert tours for the Universidad de Chile's project 'Extensión musical', with an ensemble and with the flutist Juan Bravo.
1967 back in Basel: solo appearances with the programme 'Musique intime pour guitare' at many small theatres in Switzerland and neighbouring countries. 25 years of feature-length concerts together with Hansheinz Schneeberger and the programmes 'Paganini violon et guitare' and 'Musique intime pour violon et guitare' followed in Europe and, in 1986, the then Soviet Union (concerts for the GOS in Leningrad, Vilnius, Riga, Odessa and Moscow).
Wangler was also renowned for his interpretations of contemporary works with guitar including as the soloist in Elliott Carter's 'Syringa' during the Swiss premiere with the Collegium Musicum at the Tonhalle Zurich and with Fortner's 'Perlimplin' and M. de Falla's 'La vida breve' at the Basel Theatre.
1991 – soloist at the Zurich 'Junifestwochen' with the programme 'James Joyce/John Cage' (20 performances 'James Joyce Tram Tour')
1993 – solo recitals at the Swiss Embassy in Peking and in Brussels for the 'Mission Suisse auprès de Communautés Européennes'
1996 – cello/guitar concert evenings with the master cellist Chu I Bing at the International Chamber Music Academy in Kronberg (Germany)
The press details Wangler's friendship with Salvador Dalì who, following several house concerts, painted his guitar making it fit for the museum (1968-70).
He became even more well-known for the TV guitar course 'Sechs Saiten - zehn Finger' and the textbook bearing the same name (Bärenreiter Publishers).
