Maximilian Flieder was born into a Viennese family of musicians and started playing the piano at the age of five. With nine years he already got accepted at the “Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien”, where he first studied with Prof. Elisabeth Dvorak-Weisshaar and later with Prof. Martin Hughes. After graduating with distinction he continued his studies in Hanover and Munich with Prof. Matti Raekallio and Prof. Antti Siirala. Along his formal studies also Peter Frankl, Marino Formend and Sir Andras Schiff have been formative for his musical career.

At the age of eight Maximilian Flieder won his first piano competition. From then on he started appearing on stage very frequently, what did not just lead him to the most important Viennese concert venues, but also to neighbouring and faraway foreign countries. Maximilian Flieder performed as a soloist in the Musikverein Wien, but also in the Philharmonie Berlin, the Oriental Arts Center in Shanghai, the Opera House in Peking or the Suntory Hall in Tokio, just to name a few. Many of his performances have been broadcasted by radio and TV stations.

Apart from his focus on the solistic repertoire, Maximilian Flieder also studied Lied Accompaniment with Markus Hadulla in Vienna and Neue Musik with Antti Siirala in Munich.

Furthermore Maximilian Flieder enthusiastically attends to perform chamber music and frequently appears as chamber music partner of such distinguished musicians as Gustav Rivinius, Daniel Gaede or Valentina Nafornita. Since 2019 Maximilian Flieder is a permanent member of the Stratos Quartett.
