Emil Weller was born in 2007 to an Hungarian mother and a German father. He is raised bi-lingual, and was taught at the piano by his parents - both being pianists - since he was 4. At the age of 5 he became part of the class of the highly gifted at the University of Music in Graz. Under Emil’s most important appearances so far was a concert at the international festival Ars Sonore in Graz, where he played a program with music of Russian composers and at the Licht ins Dunkel gala when he performed a march by Schubert together with Markus Schirmer.
Emil already has won several national
and international awards, f.e. the first prize with distinction at Prima la
Musica in 2014 and 2016. In June 2017 he won his most important award so far
with the first prize in St. Petersburg’s A Step Towards Mastery competition.
