Ulrich Stærk has been a much sought-after concert pianist in Denmark since his debut in Copenhagen in 1989, and has a wide-ranging career on the Continent with concerts in cities like Paris, Vienna and London. He has worked with artists like Yo-Yo Ma, Barbara Frittoli, Inga Nielsen and the Rubinstein Quartet, and has been a soloist with several orchestras; among these we can mention the Schleswig-Holstein Symphony Orchestra, the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Tivoli Symphony Orchestra and the regional orchestras in Århus and North Slesvig in piano concertos by Chopin, Mozart, Ravel, Bartók, Shostakovich, de Falla, Beethoven, Grieg, Gershwin and Czerny.
Ulrich Stærk has performed at a number of festivals: in Helsinki, Glasgow, Arc-et-Senans and Paris. Ulrich Stærk has also premiered much new Danish piano music, not least abroad. He has recorded music by the 19th century American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk and has appeared as an accompanist on a wealth of recordings.
