Friedrich Wilhelm Rödding
Assistant professor of Musical Acoustics


Born in 1965, Friedrich Wilhelm Rödding studied Artistic Recording Production, Music Reproduction and Musicology at the University of Music Detmold, where he graduated as a recording engineer (Tonmeister) in 1991. Since then he has worked as a freelance sound engineer and music producer, initially with Deutsche Grammophon, Sony Classical, the Westdeutscher Rundfunk and the Theater Bielefeld. He now works internationally as a producer for many music labels and broadcasters. For many years he has cooperated closely with Dabringhaus und Grimm (MDG), cooperating closely with the Demold-based audiophile label on development of three-dimensional music recording and playback.

His recordings have been awarded numerous prizes, including the Annual German Record Critics’ Prize and the ECHO Classic Prize more than 30 times. In 2015 – as the first sound engineer ever – he was awarded the ECHO in the category Audiophile Multi-Channel Recording for his production of Daphnis and Chloé by Maurice Ravel with the Cologne Radio Choir and the Beethoven Orchester Bonn conducted by Stefan Blunier.

Since 2019 Friedrich Wilhelm Rödding has been teaching Musical Acoustics at the Institute of Music and Media of the Robert Schumann University Düsseldorf and, since the winter semester 21/22, the subject Artistic Music Production as a substitute professor.
