Florian Christl never formally studied composition or the piano. He simply sits down at the piano and writes music that lifts your thoughts and emotions, giving them free flight, like a dream for the soul. Inspiring, full of love, hope, longing and beautiful melodies.
Florian grew up in a small town in Bavaria. He loves the outdoors, the quiet of the forest, and the peace of the mountains. His greatest passion has always been making music and he spent every free moment at the piano.
During his studies Florian worked as a student trainee with Sony Music. One of his colleagues was so impressed by his music that she used some of his tunes for a presentational video and in a playlist. This is how the classical department became aware of Florian.
The music recorded for his debut album “Inspiration” is almost identical to one of his first demos recorded at home. Next to solo piano pieces, half of the songs are arranged for piano and string quintet.
The spectacular music video for “Fly” – the first single out of Florian Christl’s debut album “Inspiration” – is shot at the upland moor near the Krimml waterfalls in Austria. Early in the morning and together with his friends, film director Florian Knab and photographer Lukas Budimaier, Florian transported his old piano to his favourite location in the Alps to play “Fly” when the sun rises. It is the perfect time to play music in an exceptionally beautiful scenery. The video captures this unique, peaceful atmosphere and preserves very emotional, uplifting and positive moments to share them with everyone.
