Daniel Rüegg, Organ

Daniel Rüegg

Daniel Rüegg was born 1973. After finishing his apprenticeship as an organ builder (in the workshop of Armin Hauser) he studied at the Academy of Music in Lucerne in the organ class of Monika Henking. He finished with two church music diplomas, namely choir conductor and organ (both with distinction) in 1999. He also won a study prize from the Axel & Max Koch Foundation, Lucerne.

His interest in ancient music, particularly his fascination in playing Generalbass led him to the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, where he got important impulses from Andrea Marcon 

during three years. His pleasure in experimenting and improvising figured bass led to the founding of Musicamaretto, an ensemble that has committed itself to connecting hardly-known Baroque music with other arts such as poetry, dance or viticulture.

 After several years of working as an organist, freelance continuo player, organ teacher and choir conductor he was able to make one of his dreams come true: the combination of working with wood and making music. He has been working part-time as an organ builder for Metzler (since 2009) and he also shares the responsibility of childcare with his partner.
