The Austrian guitarist Florian Palier grew up in a family of musicians, discovering his passion and love for music at a very early age. He first studied with his father, Johann Palier, and later with Macro Diaz Tamayo and Álvaro Pierri at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna graduating with distinction in 2015.


As an interpreter, composer and improviser it is his special passion to combine different musical worlds – his greatest influences are Olivier Messiaen, Toru Takemitsu und Allan Holdsworth. He is regularly invited to play concerts as a soloist and in chamber music groups all around the world. He thrilled the audiences with his performance of the Concierto de Aranjuez (Luxemburg Philharmonic), his solo program Poetry and Colours (with music by Dowland, Berkeley and his own compositions and improvisations) and his program Bach and Me (music J.S. Bach, his own compositions and improvisations).


Palier has won more than twenty First Prizes at competitions in Austria and abroad, including the “Anna Amalia Competition” in Weimar (Germany), the international Kutna Hora Competition (Czech Republic) and the “Twents Guitar Festival” in the Netherlands.
