Paul Sacher

Paul Sacher studied musicology at the University of Basle with Karl Nef and Jacques Handschin and conducting with Felix Weingartner. He formed the Basle Chamber Orchestra in 1926, to which was added the Basle Chamber Choir in 1928; the purpose of both was to perform music from the pre-Classical and modern epochs. In 1933 he became the director of the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, a teaching and research institute for early music which he founded in Basle. As a result of his marriage the following year to Maja Hoffmann-Stehlin, a member of the Hoffmann-La Roche pharmaceutical family, from this time on Sacher had access to funds which he used with great wisdom to further the cause of contemporary music, frequently commissioning new works from leading composers.
