Ulrich Meldau is choirmaster and organist at the large Kuhn organ at the Kirche Enge in Zurich, where he animates a diverse musical life with organ music in a variety of constellations and intergenerational choral work.
In addition to international concert activities, often in an organ duett with his wife Barbara Meldau, he has since 1991 a focus on music for organ and orchestra and realized in addition to numerous concerts in this cast, ia. also in the Tonhalle at Zurich, a much-noticed CD collection with the Motette record label in this genre with numerous world premier recordings. Following the most recent recording of this series with the two forgotten organ concertos by Richard Bartmuss, this is now continued in the present production with Guy Bovet’s adaptation of Saint-Saëns’ Organ Symphony as organ concerto.
Ulrich Meldau received a prize from the UBS Cultural Foundation for his work and in particular for his commitment to seldom heard organ music.
