Ulfert Smidt grew up in Bremen, where he received his first organ lesson at the age of 10. He studied organ and sacred music in Hanover with Ulrich Bremsteller and passed his A-Examination in 1985. A scholarship by the German Studienstiftung took him to Amsterdam for further studies with Piet Kee and Ewald Kooiman (Concert-exam in 1987).

Ulfert Smidt was church musician, choir-conductor and organ-inspector in Holzminden and
Bremen. Since 1996 he has been the organist at the Marktkirche Hanover and the artistic
director of the International Organ Concert Series held there. In addition, he is teacher for organ and
improvisation at the Hanover College of Music.

Numerous CDs with Ulfert Smidt have been published (Brahms, Complete organ works;
Northern German Organ Music; Bach, Mendelssohn, F. Martin, own transcriptions of César Franck Piano Works) and won several prizes, including the German Record Critics Prize and the “Echo”-prize.
