Vita

Prof. Dr. Andreas Sieling has been cathedral organist at the Great Sauer Organ at the Berliner Dom since 2005. He studied organ playing at the Robert-Schumann-Hochschule in Düsseldorf with Prof. Hans-Dieter Möller and church music (A-Diplom) in Halle (Saale) as well as musicology, German studies and journalism in Berlin. Andreas Sieling received his doctorate with a thesis on the Berlin church musician August Wilhelm Bach (1796 - 1869).

Numerous concert tours have taken cathedral organist Andreas Sieling to almost all European countries, Russia, the USA and Canada. He is also regularly involved in CD, radio and film recordings. The publication of scholarly works and the publication of unknown romantic music of the 19th century round out his activities.

Since 1999, Sieling has taught artistic organ playing as well as additional performance practice, organ literature and organ studies at the Berlin University of the Arts, which appointed him professor. In addition, he gives master classes in Germany and abroad, works as an organ expert, and is in demand as a juror at competitions.

Since 2015, Andreas Sieling has performed together with actor Ben Becker, for whose play "I, Judas" he conceived and performed the music. He also collaborates with Martina Gedeck and Matthias Brandt. In March 2017, he began "The Bach Project" at the Berliner Dom.

For the first time, he will perform the organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach on the Great Sauer Organ. The series comprises 15 concerts in five years (2017 - 2021) and deliberately began on Bach's birthday in the Reformation anniversary year.

In 2020, his CD "Berlin" (on the Dabringhaus and Grimm label) was released, bringing together compositions by Berlin composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries - including several premiere recordings.
