Switzerland, °1998
Samuel Niederhauser showed talent and passion for music at a very young age. He received his first lessons from Matthias Walpen, then continued his training under Clíodhna Ní Aodáin in Bern, then in Zurich under Rebecca Firth. In 2016, he joined Thomas Grossenbacher’s class at the Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, then Thomas Demenga’s class at the Hochschule für Musik in Basle, where he obtained his master’s in 2021. His training was enriched by participation in masterclasses taught by, among others, Frans Helmerson, David Geringas, and Jens Peter Maintz. He has won various first prizes at national and international competitions and recently distinguished himself as a semi-finalist at the Geneva International Music Competition in 2021. Samuel Niederhauser performs regularly as a soloist with orchestras such as the Basel Symphony Orchestra and the Zürcher Kammerorchester and features on the programmes of festivals such as the Gstaad Menuhin Festival and the Variations Musicales de Tannay.
