About Fabian Zeller
As a crossover artist, the German-Portuguese guitarist Fabian Zeller connects the emotional intensity of Fado with the profound structure and clarity of classical and popular music traditions.
He is in fact a virtuous magician, as not only guitar legend Carlo Domeniconi confirms: “This is the kind of musician the guitar needs.”
Whether as a soloist in frequent demand by orchestras such as the Robert Schumann Philharmonic Orchestra with the world-famous “Concierto de Aranjuez”, whether with his solo program, of which the CD “Novo Mundo” was released in 2018, or in projects such as the Duo Resonado or the groove jazz band Flowin Tension – the young artist is gaining international recognition both at highly respected music festivals and in concert halls in Latin America, Asia, Africa and Europe. Audiences and the press describe his concerts as “guitar fire” (Ostseezeitung).
His compositions are published by the renowned music publishers Acoustic Music and Edition Margaux Berlin, among others, and are interpreted by renowned musicians worldwide.
Fabian Zeller studied in Germany and with a DAAD scholarship in Brazil and is one of the few selected musicians that studied after his master’s degree “Acoustic Guitar” in the master class program at the University of Music Carl Maria von Weber in Dresden.
He is co-founder and artistic director of the”Gitarrenfestival Dresden”. Since 2021 he is teaching guitar and ensembles at the Dresden State High School of Music with a lectureship from the Dresden University of Music.
