The German pianist, Christoph Ullrich, studied with Leonard Hokanson in Frankfurt, Claude Frank in the USA and Rudolf Buchbinder in Basel.
Christoph Ullrich has a multi-facetted repertoire comprising all epochs and styles since J.S. Bach. His search for a vital and unconventional confrontation with the public has led him to the development of new forms of programmes. These include the very thematically rich musical-literary programmes with the Ensemble BonaNox, the concepts for children's concerts within the framework of the Ohrwurm-Projekt (Catchy Tune Project) with their proximity to music theatre, and his concert idea "Alchemy of Sound."
Concert tours as a soloist, chamber musician and vocal accompanist have taken Christoph Ullrich to many European countries, South and North America, Asia and many international Festivals including the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Rheingau Music Festival, Beethovenfest in Bonn, Ludwigsburg Castle Festival, Bachwoche Ansbach, Bachfest Leipzig, Schubertiade in Feldkirch, Mozartfest in Würzburg, Schwetzinger Mozartfest, Cambridge Music Festival, Lower Saxony Music Days, Brandenburg Summer Concerts and North Hessian Music Summer. He has performed with major orchestras.
Alongside concert recordings for radio and television, Christoph Ullrich has participated in several TV productions as a pianist, e.g. in the film Klavier/komplex and the documentation about the American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk Death in Rio. His CD recordings include piano works of W.A. Mozart and Franz Schubert, the musicalliterary programmes ("Water," "Night," "Head of Janus" and "Dream Fever"), the complete works for violoncello and piano of Friedrich Kiel with the cellist Hans Zentgraf and the Winterreise of Franz Schubert with Matthias Horn on the Spektral label.
Christoph Ullrich is the Artistic Director of the "Taschen-Oper-Companie“ (Pocket Opera Company) and co-founder of the "Ohrwurm-Projekt“ that combines concerts for children at elementary schools with teaching concepts for concert preparation.
