Benyamin Nuss and Friends

Benyamin Nuss was born in Bergisch-Gladbach on the twentieth of June 1989. At the age of six he began piano lessons. He was inspired and encouraged by his father, the trombonist Ludwig Nuss, an internationally renowned jazz musicians. Not only did Benyamin grow up with music from different genres, he really made classical music and jazz his passion. Inspired by Doctor Gradus ad Parnassum from Children’s Corner, he began at the age of ten to study the composer Claude Debussy, and soon after the works of Maurice Ravel.

How elegantly and emotionally he internalizes the music is demonstrated by his first prizes at the 2005 national Steinway Competition “Young Musicians”, and the 2006 international competition “Prix d’Amadeo de Piano” as well as his grant from the Hochbegabtenstiftung (Foundation for the Gifted) ”Best of NRW”. Benyamin Nuss has been studying at the Cologne/Aachen conservatoire with Prof. Ilya Scheps since 2008. 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, who scored the music for the most famous Role Play Game of all times, Final Fantasy. He will become shotly after the official pianist of the official concert tours of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts, and a very demanded performer in the video game music industry in Japan, along with Nobuo Uematsu, Tsutomu Narita, Masashi Hamauzu, Hideki Sakimoto and  Yôko Shimomura.
