Fabian Müller

During the last seasons, Fabian Müller could establish himself as one of the most remarkable German pianists of his generation. He caused a great sensation at the International ARD music competition in Munich 2017, when he not only won 2nd prize in the overall ranking, but was awarded with not less than four additional prizes: the audience prize, the Brothers Busch award, the special prize Genuin classics as well as the Henle Urtext award. As early as 2013, Fabian Müller attracted an expert audience’s attention for the first time, when he won the prize of the press jury at the Ferruccio Busoni International Piano Competition in Bolzano and, furthermore, was awarded with the special prize for the best interpretation of a piece by Busoni as well as the special prize for the best interpretation of contemporary piano music.

Since then his concert activities have developed at a high international level: in spring 2018 he made his debut at Carnegie Hall in New York, and in autumn 2018 he made his debut recital at the Elbphilharmonie.

Meanwhile he has performed with major orchestras including the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the WDR Symphony Orchestra Cologne, the HR-Symphony Orchestra, and the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn. Besides, he was a guest at prestigious festivals such as the Mecklenburg-Vorpommern Festival, the Schwetzingen Festival, the Heidelberger Frühling, the Ruhr Piano Festival, and the Aldeburgh Festival and gave concerts in renowned concert halls such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, the Herkulessaal in Munich, the Cologne Philharmonic Hall, the Tonhalle Dusseldorf, the Beethoven-Haus in Bonn, and the Bremen concert hall Die Glocke.

Beside his projects as a soloist, Fabian Müller is also intensively devoted to chamber music. His partners in this sphere include artists such as Albrecht Mayer, Julian Bliss, Sarah Christian, Niklas Liepe, Daniel Müller-Schott, Maximilian Hornung, the Aris Quartett as well as the vision string quartet. Furthermore, he is the artistic director of the chamber music series ‘Bonner Zwischentöne’, which was initiated by him.

Along with his regular concert activities, Fabian Müller is also committed to conveying music to children and teenagers. As the pianist of the Ruhr Piano Festival’s education project, he annually works with more than 300 children and their creative engagement with modern music. The project was awarded with the ‘Junge Ohren’ prize in 2014 and with an Echo Klassik in 2016.
