Elias Keller is an up-and-coming young pianist from Carinthia, Austria.
Elias Keller is a 14-year-old multicultural prodigy. He found his passion for music at the tender age of 4. The young musician, whose mother is from Carinthia, Austria, and father from Alsace Lorraine, France, started to play piano at the age of six and was accepted to the Mozarteum in Salzburg two years later.
Elias has an intuitive feel for music and has been compared to a young Mozart and referred to as the reincarnation of Franz Liszt. He regularly plays with members of the Vienna Philharmonic in Austria. And has also played abroad in the U.S.A., Japan, Spain, and Germany.
Despite his unique gift, Elias has also remained a normal 14-year-old boy who enjoys nature and loves to play soccer. His family has done a wonderful job of making sure he finds a good balance between his musical career and his everyday life.
Thank you for letting me make music, thank you for letting me be music!
