Benyamin Nuss was born in Bergisch-Gladbach in 1989. At the early age of six, he began taking piano lessons from Viktor Langemann. He was inspired and encouraged by his father, the trombonist Ludwig Nuss and his brother Hubert, both internationally renowned jazz musicians and composers. In this way, Benyamin Nuss not only grew up surrounded by music of different genres, both classical and jazz music became his passion.
At the age of ten, inspired by Doctor gradus ad parnassum from Debussy’s Children’s Corner, he began to concentrate on the composer’s music, and soon afterwards on the work of Maurice Ravel. In 2006, Benyamin Nuss became a junior student at the Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln under Ilja Scheps and completed his studies with honors in 2016. Additionally, he has been inspired by Dimitri Bashkirov, Stanislav Bunin, Ragna Schirmer and Anatol Ugorski.
In 2010 and 2012, Benyamin Nuss released two solo albums and entered the classical music charts with his fi rst CD. Using video game music as a theme, he has also succeeded in attracting a large number of young audience members to concert halls. Benyamin Nuss performs internationally as a soloist with top orchestras including the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Utah Symphony Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra.
In 2019 he won the Opus Klassik together with Konstantin Reinfeld for the CD Debut. In addition to his work as a classical pianist, Benyamin Nuss is a sought-after jazz musician.
