A classical pianist who can play more than 2.000 pop songs by heart, made it into the finals of "Germany's Got Talent" and "Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar", the german version of "American Idol" and won more than 25 international classical prizes, like the chopin-competition 2011 and the "Grand Prix" of the music festival Cannes 2010 - that's Leon Buche in one sentence. One of his strongest skills is the interaction with the audience in his - always self-moderated - concerts, which can be hold everywhere, in piano bars like also on festivals, in classical concerts halls or in theatres. In thi ... s concerts he often gives lists to the audience, where the audience just have to say a number between 1 and 2.000 and can listen to their favorite song - like people know it from a normal jukebox. Leon Buches repertoire consists in classical pieces, self-written songs, famous german and english rock songs (which he performs as a singer and pianist), but also mash-ups between pop and classic, which he broadcasted on his album-serie "Between The Worlds" and are in live-situations often the most liked pieces by the audience. Leon Buche can also be booked for company galas, weddings, birthday partys, classical recitals and jubilee cocktail dinners.
More than 2.000 popsongs
