Fabian Müller has established himself in recent seasons as one of the most remarkable pianists of his generation. In the 2022/23 season, he will make his debut with the Staatskapelle Berlin under the direction of Daniel Barenboim.
He already caused quite a stir in 2017 at the International ARD Music Competition in Munich, where he received no less than five prizes, including the Audience Prize. In 2013, Fabian Müller first made a name for himself in front of a large professional audience when he was awarded the International Press Prize, a special prize for the best interpretation of a work by Ferruccio Busoni and the special prize for the interpretation of contemporary piano music at the International Ferruccio Busoni Piano Competition in Bolzano.
Fabian Müller has since performed with orchestras such as the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the hr Symphony Orchestra, the SWR Symphony Orchestra, the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn. He is a regular guest at festivals such as the Ruhr Piano Festival, the Rheingau Music Festival, the Heidelberg Spring, the Schwetzingen SWR Festival (Artist in Residence 2024), the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival and the Aldeburgh Festival, as well as in halls such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Pierre Boulez Saal in Berlin, the Herkulessaal in Munich, the Cologne Philharmonie, the Tonhalle Düsseldorf, the Glocke in Bremen and the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn.
He is the artistic director of the chamber music series »Bonner Zwischentöne«, which he initiated. His musical partners include Benjamin Appl, Albrecht Mayer, Diana Tishchenko, Liisa Randalu, Daniel Müller-Schott, Maximilian Hornung, Igor Levit, the Monet Quintet, the Schumann Quartet, the Aris Quartet and the Vision String Quartet.
In addition to his regular concert activities, Fabian Müller is also involved in music education and children’s and youth work. As festival pianist at the Ruhr Piano Festival’s Education Project, he works with over 300 children every year, who engage with modern music in a creative way. This project was awarded the Young Ears Prize in 2014 and an Echo Klassik in 2016.
Fabian Müller has an exclusive collaboration with »Berlin Classics«. His first CD on this label was released in autumn 2018 and contains solo piano works by Johannes Brahms. In 2020, another CD with works by Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms and Rihm was released there. This was followed in spring 2022 by his current album, which includes Schubert’s last three sonatas. In addition, a Mozart album was released by Deutsche Grammophon, which he recorded together with Albrecht Mayer.
