Florian Glemser is becoming increasingly established as a widely respected concert pianist. Appearances
have led him to perform in almost all major concert halls in Germany and in Europe.
Born into a musical family, he received his first piano lessons from his mother at the age of three.
Only seven years later, he was selected to continue his musical training through a scholarship system of Würzburg University of Music to support highly gifted pupils or students.
He made his concert debut at the age of seven, and his orchestral debut with the Würzburg Philharmonic Orchestra in 2007 as the soloist in George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. This was a most convenient coincidence, as Florian Glemser, an enthusiastic jazz fan, also made a name for himself as a jazz pianist in his youth. He won the Soloist Prize of the Würzburg Jazz Initiative and toured throughout Europe with a big band.
At the beginning of his studies, he finally opted for a purely classical career and had the opportunity to win numerous international prizes as a soloist; he was granted scholarships by the German Academic Scholarship Foundation, the Hans and Eugenia Jütting Foundation in Stendal, and the German Foundation for Musical Life.
One of the figures who has exerted the greatest influence on Florian’s development as an artist is professor Grigory Gruzmann, with whom he studied in Weimar.
Florian Glemser currently teaches at Detmold University of Music and at the Mittelfranken Regional Vocational School of Music.
