Biography
Born in Zurich, Bernhard Sieber completed his secondary education in Zurich, and began experimenting with composition after the age of sixteen. Following the completion of his undergraduate education in 1960 he studied cello, organ, counterpoint and cantor at the 'Musikakademie Zürich' (Zurich Academy of Music). He studied composition under Robert Blum. He is an organist, music teacher and conductor of amateur choirs and orchestras. Many of his works have been produced in connection with these activities including most of his works for choir and organ chorale as well as the spiritual collection for cello and piano. After a pause between 1989 and 2002 he is again musically active as an organist, cello player and composer.
