Timon Altwegg After receiving his diploma of Musical Education in Zurich, Swiss pianist Timon Altwegg pursued his studies in London for two years with professor Alan Rowlands at the Royal College of Music. In 1992 he concluded his studies with the "Piano Performing Diploma", at the same time receiving the honorary title of "Associate of the Royal College of Music" in 1992. Timon Altwegg is in great demand as a specialist in chamber music and soloist and is being invited to give concerts in the United States, South-America and all over Europe on a regular basis. He has also been successfully performing in the Middle East and Libya.
Altwegg excels in the solo interpretation of Spanish and Latin-American composers giving special prominence to rarely performed piano music. Being an expert on British composers as well, he was appointed musical advisor to the Swain-Alexander Trust in London. His concerts have been broadcast live on Hungarian radio and television, the Austrian national television channel (ORF) and, on the occasion of his tour through South America in 2007, on Ecuadorian television. In May 2004 Timon Altwegg gave an outstanding, historic performance with the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra, being the first foreign soloist invited to Iraq since 1990. During his stay in Baghdad he also gave master classes at the Baghdad School of Music and Dance, under the patronage of the Swiss Embassy, the Swiss Foreign Secretary and the Ministry of Culture of Iraq.

In appreciation of the great popularity and success of Timon Altwegg abroad, the pianist is readily supported and promoted by the Centre de Compétence Culturelle of EDA (Foreign Ministry of Switzerland). Timon Alwegg's brilliant and highly acclaimed technique is appreciated by numerous contemporary composers who entrust him with the première of their works. Thus Frank Levy, a Swiss composer living in the USA, dedicated his only two piano sonatas to him and American composer Hugh Levick wrote his principal piece of piano music "Decline & Fal" especially for him.
