Biography
Peter Wettstein was born in Zurich. Following completion of his 'Maturität', he studied at the University of Zurich and the Musikakademie and subsequently at the Musikhochschule Detmold. Courses in Darmstadt, Paris, Hilversum and New York supplemented his graduate studies (1961 until 1965) in the subjects violin, sound engineering and conducting. He has won numerous prizes offered by various competitions and institutions in his role as a conductor and composer.
In 1965 he was appointed a teaching position in theory and conducting at the then Musikakademie Zürich. He became the director of the vocational department of the conservatory and Musikhochschule in 1976 and was the Director of the Musikhochschule Zürich from 1999 until summer 2003. He additionally taught at the University of Zurich from 1978 until 2001.
Predominantly in the field of new-music, Wettstein's involvement with various cultural committees has resulted in multifaceted accomplishments within the Swiss music scene.
He has received various awards for his compositional, music-pedagogic and politico-cultural work. Peter Wettstein is currently engaged as a general expert at the Basel, Luzern and Zurich schools of music, manages the oldest Swiss music festival, the 'Musikwoche Braunwald', and is active involved with various politico-cultural organisations.
His catalogue of works contains ca. 80 compositions covering almost every genre from solo to chamber music through to works for orchestra and musical theatre.

Anrufungen (1976-1977)

Janus (1987)
for string quartet
This work lives from a sonority rising from an environment of whispered tremoli and the slightest of tonal movements. Ascending to multi coloured sotto-voce effects and dialogues spoken under breath eventually falling back to the soft vibrations of the beginning. It is signed over to Janus, and so it develops around a short intermezzo, two strings whose affinity is audible but who have absolutely separate lineaments; where it comes to refined sound effects in Face I, Face II departs into melodic developments and contrapuntal associations…(NZZ)

Concerto violinissimo (1991-1992)
for violin and orchestra (2(2pic).2.2(2bcl).2/2.2.1.0/2perc/str)
“….a fantasy full discourse between the pre-existing and the powerful tradition of the virtuoso concert. It centralises the soloist, a soloist who multiplies and finds himself in partnership with five subsidiary soloists who, from various parts of the concert hall, offer support. Even the orchestra is not the collective against which the soloist stands out - it presents itself much more as a group of individuals who act, in certain parts, even independent of the conductor….”

Kaleidos (1993)
for sixteen string instruments and percussion (9.3.3.1/2perc)
Sixteen solo strings are separated into chamber music groups and arranged around the percussion ensemble. From a light relaxed transparent sound surface and rhythmically pulsating figures, there develops chordal and melodic but also harmonic coloured structures which, like coloured glass splinters in a kaleidoscope, continually produce new combinations. Single soloists and small formations are set against each other resulting in an interplay between effectively fixed and improvised segments: tensions begin to mount leading to discharges; relationships develop from contacts which then lead to consensus or dissent.

Octet

Five centrally placed string instruments are combined with three decentralised wind instruments.

RITORNELLI (1995)
for small orchestra (1(pic).1.1.1/1.1.1.1/1-2perc/pf/str)
Part of the feature-length project (KREUZENDE WEGE), of the Zurich ‘Komponistensekretariat’. The motives came from composer colleagues Werner Bärtschi, Ulrich Gasser, Max Eugen Keller and Martin Sigrist (at least one motive from an earlier piece, one especially "invented" for this project, and one which is "borrowed" from an especially appreciated contemporary composer), forming the basic material that gives the piece its character.
