There are pianists who fascinate the audience with their virtuoso technique and there are those who are able to transfer their distinct feeling for the music to the audience and thus allowing the audience to identify with the music played. Benyamin Nuss is a rarity who combines these abilities.
How elegantly and emotionally he internalizes the music is demonstrated by his first prize at the 2005 national Steinway Competition "Young Musicians", and the 2006 international competition "Prix 'Amadeo de Piano" as well as his grant from the Hochbegabtenstiftung (Foundation for the Gifted) ”Best of NRW”. Besides his love for classical music and jazz, he had always a passion for Videogames and Videogame music. He was the featured soloist in the award winning "Symphonic Fantasies" recording and his first CD released by "Deutsche Grammophon" is a tribute to the legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu, the composer of "Final Fantasy". In 2010 Benyamin toured through Germany, where he played in most of the major concert halls, like Berlin "Philharmonie", Frankfurt "Alte Oper", Hamburg "Laeiz Halle", Stuttgart "Liederhalle" and many more. Besides he appeared as a major soloist of the "Symphonic Fantasies" and "Distand World" concerts in Tokyo, Chicago, Cologne and Stockholm. Since then Nuss has played Solo performances on TV, and performed in front of German Chancellor, Angela Merkel. In 2012, he recorded his second CD for DG -"Exotica”, which was equally successful and was followed by celebrating concerts in Tokyo and Singapore.
"The pianist devoted all his energy with deep seriousness, rhythmic relentlessness and steel approach. The audience were too mesmerised with the high voltage of the performance."
- Gottinger Tageblatt
"Handled the complicated technical viciousness without the slightest difficulty, and this with an admirable composure and resilient brilliance."
