Ulrike Payer*

Ulrike Payer counts among the most versatile pianists of our time. Her repertoire not only includes solo pieces, as well as all renowned concerts and chamber music pieces and lieder, but also covers various styles and eras, from Baroque to modern day classical music. She studied with Alexis Weissenberg, Tatjana Nikolajewa and the Amadeus Quartet. As a pianist, Ulrike distinguished herself not only in the world of classical music, but also as an interpreter of Tango Argentino. Consequently, Ulrike played concerts alongside the most prominent Argentine musicians, such as Cholo Montironi, Noberto Bondino, Carlos Buono and the Sexteto Mayor. Since 2004, she has been teaching at the Musikhochschule Mainz and the Musikhochschule Saarbrücken.

*Ulrike is a member of the Isabelle van Keulen Ensemble and will be perfoming with the ensemble in the start of the string course. He will also be having a tango session.
