Leon Buche, the classical pianist who can play more than 2.000 popsongs by heart, is prizewinner of more than 25 international classical piano competitions. 2011 he won the "Grand Prix" of the music festival in Cannes and started to play first concert tours in Spain, France and Italy. 2016 he was finalist (and winner of all instrumentalists) in the German TV-casting-show "Das Supertalent" (Germany's Got Talent). In the same year he also made it into the TOP 20 of the TV-casting-show "Deutschland Sucht Den Superstar", the german version of American Idol. He also had TV-gigs in the shows "RBB Ja
... hresrückblick", "ARD brisant", "RBB zibb", "ARD - tagesschau24", "MDR Kultur" and "ZDF Querstraße". 2017 he signed a contract with the well-known German concert agency A.S.S. Concerts.
Leon Buches repertoire consists more than 2.000 popsongs, which he often mixes with classical pieces. For this talent DIeter Bohlen (RTL) called him "The Human Jukebox" of "Das Supertalent 2017". 2011 Leon Buche won the 1st prize in the chopin-competition in Roma. He also made it into the finals of the well-known classical competition "Top Of The World" in Norway.
From 2019 to 2020 Leon Buche worked as a solo-entertainer and musical leader for Royal Carribean International/TUI Cruises, where his pop-meets-classic-solo-gigs became one of the most popular entertainment-events on ocean cruise ships like the "Royal Mariners Of The Seas" or the "Mein Schiff 1". Since 2020 Leon Buche lives half in the Egyptian town Dahab, where he also worked on his first solo-album "Unlimited", which will be released in February 2021 and where he shows his most sensitive side as a pianist and composer.
One of Buches strongest skills is also the interaction with the audience in his - always self-moderated - classical recitals. Leon Buche can also be booked for company galas, weddings, birthday partys, rock-/pop-festivals and jubilee cocktail dinners.
