MARC-OLIVIER OETTERLI

“Music means EVERYTHING that you can’t see or touch. What is very difficult to put into words. But music can circumscribe everything, is able to express everything and, ideally, to transport the performer and the listener into another world.”

Marc-Olivier Oetterli

      Currently, the artist is preparing for several concerts and recordings focusing on the composer Bohuslav Martinu as well as Johann Sebastian Bach. In addition, he is creating several programs in which he will act as soloist and conductor at the same time. He is particularly interested in finding a common tonal language with the orchestra and developing a common musical concept. 

      

      Marc-Olivier Oetterli keeps an open mind about what else is to come, because “all too often, circumstances change – and I consider dealing with that to be one of my greatest strengths.”

Hallo Beat! Natürlich! Ich kann mich bestens an Dich erinnern! Und an die wichtigsten Grundlagen der Technik und Informatik, welche Du mir beigebracht hast! Regel Nr. 1: wenn etwas nicht funktioniert, überprüfe zuerst IMMER das Kabel!!! Das hab ich bis heute nicht vergessen!

Hallo Marc weisst du noch wer ich bin? Denke an die Zeit von der Visura in Solothurn zurück? Wie geht es Dir? Ich hoffe gut! Herzliche Grüsse aus Solothurn Beat Bucher

Love it... 💕
