EM History: Franz Lambert

Post by SPW »



Franz Lambert (born 11 March 1948 in Heppenheim, Germany) is a German composer and organist. He is an avid Hammond organ player, however he is more noted in later years for playing the Wersi range of electronic organs. During his career he has released over 100 albums.

His first notable public appearance was in 1969 in the German TV show Zum Blauen Bock, after which he received his first publishing contract. He has played for several celebrities, including Prince Charles and Helmut Schmidt.

One of his works is the FIFA Anthem, which was first played at the 1994 FIFA World Cup. It continues to be played at all FIFA-organized games and tournaments when the teams enter the pitch.

Franz Lambert lives with his wife and his two children in Heppenheim-Sonderbach, Hesse.
