Ernst Surberg

Ernst Surberg, born 1966 in Münster, is founding member of ensemble mosaik. Receiving a scholarship by the Käthe-Dorsch-Foundation, he studied piano with Rolf Koenen and Alan Marks at the University of Arts and the Academy of Music Hanns Eisler in Berlin. After his studies, a master course for contemporary piano music with Jeffrey Burns, triggered Surberg’s intense examination of contemporary music. In addition to his engagement with ensemble mosaik Surberg started composing and premiered several works of his own. He wrote the music for three theatre pieces at the Schauspiel Köln: “Der letzte Riesenalk” (2009) and “wozuwozuwozu” (2010) with Anna Viebrock, as well as “Warten auf Godot” (2011), directed by  Thomas Dannemann. Surberg performed several premieres as soloist as well as with ensemble and orchestra – amongst others works by Michael Beil, Agostino Di Scipio, Rama Gottfried, Andrew Hamilton, Marisol Jiménez, Georgia Koumará, Klaus Lang, Sarah Nemtsov, Sergej Newski, Enno Poppe, Karen Power, Kirsten Reese, Katharina Rosenberger und Stefan Streich. With ensemble mosaik, he gave guest performances at a wide range of the most important international festivals for contemporary music and contributed to various broadcasting recordings and CD productions.
