Prof. Dr. Andreas Sieling has been the Cathedral organist on the great Sauer organ in Berlin Cathedral since 2005. He studied the organ at the Robert-Schumann University in Düsseldorf with Prof. Hans-Dieter Möller and church music in the city of Halle (Saale), as well as musicology, German studies and journalism in Berlin. He received his doctorate with a thesis on the Berlin church musician August Wilhelm Bach (1796 – 1869).
Numerous concert tours took Cathedral organist Andreas Sieling to almost every European nation, Russia, United States of America and Canada. He also regularly participates in CD, radio and film recordings. The publication of academic papers and editions of unknown Romantic music from the 19th century round off his array of activities.
Since 1999, Sieling has taught organ playing as well as performance practice, organ repertoire and organ studies at the Berlin University of the Arts (UdK), where he has been appointed professor. In addition, he gives masterclasses in Germany and abroad, works as an organ expert assessor and is also in demand as a jury member in competitions.
Andreas Sieling has been performing together with actor Ben Becker since 2015, for whose theatre performance ‘I, Judas’ he composed and performed the music.
In March 2017, Cathedral organist Sieling began ‘The Bach Project’ at Berlin Cathedral. He will be performing the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach on the great Sauer organ for the first time. The series comprises 15 concerts over five years (2017 – 2021) and was intentionally started on Bach's birthday in the Reformation’s jubilee year.
