Benyamin Nuss and the Music From the Universe of Consoles
New member of the Neue Meister family: The award-winning piano virtuoso Benyamin Nuss releases his latest album at Neue Meister and dives into the computer game series Final Fantasy.
Encouraged and inspired by his father, the trombonist Ludwig Nuss and his brother Hubert, a pianist, both internationally renowned jazz musicians and composers, he started taking piano lessons at the age of six. Benyamin not only grows up with the music of different genres but also makes classical music and jazz his passion. The first prizes at the "Jugend musiziert" national competition, the Steinway Competition (2005) and the "Prix d'amadeo de piano" (2006), as well as a scholarship for highly skilled players, prove how elegant and emotional he internalized music. No-one less than Rolando Villazón introduced him to a large European audience in the TV production "Die Stars von Morgen".
In addition to a passion for classic and jazz, Nuss is genuinely fascinated by the world of digital games, their soundscapes, and soundtracks. With piano versions of well-known game music, Nuss succeeds in attracting young listeners to the concert halls and plays at major fairs and conventions in the video game scene.
In 2019, Benyamin Nuss releases the piano album "Fantasy Worlds" at Neue Meister - a tribute to the video game music by Nobuo Uematsu, Masashi Hamauzu, Yoko Shimomura, Hitoshi Sakimoto, Masayoshi Soken, and the classic video game Final Fantasy.
The album will be released on 22 February 2019 at Neue Meister.
