Ulrich Schultheiss has been working as a composer and arranger in contemporary and functional music since the 1980s. His musical language is often infused with elements of other genres, cultures or art forms. Most of his works were performed in Europe, in States of the former Soviet Union, in North and South America, the Middle and far East. There are numerous radio broadcasts and CD recordings in Germany and abroad. In addition to his artistic activities, he works as a professor at the University of Münster in Germany. His catalogue of works includes music for voice, solo instruments, chamber ensembles, orchestra and compositions and arrangements for film, cabaret, theatre and performance.
“What a cool piece! It gripped me as soon as I heard it and I have even asked the composer to arrange it for sax/piano. It is fun, catchy and unpretentious - just as music in this genre should be.”

“All I can say is to expect more good works of art from Mr. Schultheiss.”
Nathan Lewis review Scorchmusic.com
“The funky, witty, teasing mood of the Schultheiss was pitched to perfection by Ogden and McChrystal. Suffice it to say that I joined the queue for PluckBlow's CD ... straight after the concert!”
