Web Exclusive: Thierry Fischer's Family
Thierry Fischer tells Shauna Lake about his wife and children.
Shauna Lake: How long have you been married?
Thierry Fischer: A very long time...28 years.
Shauna Lake: Where did you guys meet?
Thierry Fischer: We met at school when we were 16. How sweet...childhood sweethearts...yes...that's fun.
Shauna Lake: And you have 3 sons?
Thierry Fischer: We have 3 boys; Matthew is a landscape architect, Basil is doing his masters now in Geneva University in sustainable development and Benjamin is studying at the university political science.
Shauna Lake: No musicians in the lot?
Thierry Fischer: No, no we tried they just didn't, they were probably not really done for music. They love coming to concerts, they love looking at my schedule and choosing a city and saying why it’s been such a long time I haven't heard a concert. Oh wow it's there. So they love coming.
Shauna Lake: Were you disappointed? Did you want your sons to be musicians and follow in your footsteps or was that not very important to you?
Thierry Fischer: The only thing that is important is that I want my son's to do what they want. The challenge is to guide them into a direction that they feel the capacity to choose what is good for them.
