Reto Anneler

Reto Anneler studied jazz at the conservatories of Lucerne and Amsterdam with Nathanael Su, Tineke Postma and Kurt Rosenwinkel. As a sought-after sideman and specialist for woodwinds of all kinds, he is a member of a wide range of international projects: Lead-Alto of the Zurich Jazz Orchestra, Swiss Jazz Orchestra, Keller's <10>, Sinatra Tribute Band and Peter Eigenmann/Ken Cervenka Nonet. Reto Anneler received the Erasmus scholarship for Amsterdam in 2003, attended Dave Liebman’s international jazzmeeting IASJ in Krakow and was "Pro Argovia Artist" in 2010. Reto Anneler’s new project - Stille Post - unites four distinctive and formative characters of the Swiss music scene. With the jazz tradition rooted and influenced by the music of our time, the four enter into a dialogue, sometimes seeking, sometimes demanding, but always guided by the rules of the composition.
