Cathedral organist Andreas Sieling

OPUS KLASSIK prizewinner Andreas Sieling has been the cathedral organist at the large Sauer organ in Berlin Cathedral since 2005.

Numerous concert tours have taken him to almost all European countries, the USA, Canada and Russia (before 2022). He is also regularly involved in CD, radio and film recordings as well as TV broadcasts. He also provides musical support for contemporary video art projects (Julia Stoschek Foundation). The publication of scientific works and the publication of unknown romantic music of the 19th century round off his versatile musical activities. 

Since 1999 Sieling has taught artistic organ playing as well as performance practice, organ literature and organ methodology at the Berlin University of the Arts, where he was appointed professor. He also gives masterclasses in Germany and abroad, works as an organ expert and is in demand as a juror at competitions. In 2020, he was awarded the title of Kirchenmusikdirektor.

Since 2015, Andreas Sieling has been performing together with actor Ben Becker, for whose most successful play "I, Judas" he conceived the music and performs regularly. The 150 or so performances to date alone have brought more than 160,000 people into contact with organ music. He has also worked with actors such as Martina Gedeck, Matthias Brandt, Hanns Zischler and others. In the "Organ and Dance" format, a project with choreographer Sasha Waltz and her dancers took place in May 2021.

In March 2017, he began "The Bach Project" in Berlin Cathedral. For the first time, he performed the organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach on the large Sauer organ. The series comprised 15 concerts and deliberately began on Bach's birthday in the anniversary year of the Reformation and ended for the "Year of the Organ" in December 2021. Most recently, his CD "Berlin" (released by Dabringhaus & Grimm), which brings together compositions by Berlin composers of the 19th and early 20th centuries - including several premiere recordings - was released in 2020. For this CD, he was awarded the Opus Klassik, the most important prize in the German music industry, as "Instrumentalist of the Year". To mark the 200th anniversary of the composer's birth, Andreas Sieling presented Franck's complete organ works in four concerts in different aural axes.
