Honesty, passion, finesse. These are the musical ingredients of the Franco-German pianist, Emil Reinert. His fascination with the piano was sparked during his school years in his hometown of Paris. At the age of 10, he made the decision to commence his professional piano career.

His first piano professor and mentor, Adam Wibrowski, accompanied him from then on until his scientific baccalaureate. The then 17-year-old Reinert graduated with the highest honors from the highly respected Lycée Charlemagne, whose graduates included Honoré de Balzac and Théophile Gautier. With this degree, he could now devote himself entirely to his great passion of music in all its diversity.

In 2012, while still in his senior year, Reinert followed in the footsteps of Eric Satie and Edgar Varèse by studying piano at the Schola Cantorum. There, Gabriel Tacchino brought him into a direct student lineage with Francis Poulenc, since Tacchino was Poulenc's only piano student. In addition, Reinert studied musicology at the Sorbonne University in Paris and vocal accompaniment with Françoise Tillard at the Conservatory.

Having consistently passed his studies with highest honors, Reinert moved to the cultural city of Hamburg on his musical journey. There he eventually met his second mentor, Professor Hubert Rutkowski, at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater.

From that point on, he participated in various competitions where he won numerous prizes, including first prize at the 2019 Steinway Competition, the first prize at the Montrond-lesBains Competition, the second prize at the Elise-Meyer Competition, the third prize at the 6th Béla-Bartok Competition, the „concert prize“, „culture prize“ and „Leschetitzky prize“ at the 2nd German Competition for polish music and the prize for the best interpretation of Dimitri Chostakovitch at the 16th Île-de-France Competition.

Through these successes, he has been invited to several festivals, such as the Paderewski Festival in America and the Philos Festival in Japan. Reinert has also received funding from the Deutschland Stipendium and the Johannes Brahms Foundation.

His interest in modern music led him, together with other musicians, to set up the successful "Ensemble Volans", which aims at bringing contemporary music to a wide variety of listeners. Indeed, communicating music is an important task for Emil Reinert. Thus, in October 2019, he was hired at the Career Center for artist placement and worked as a presenter at several international events. With his sense of piano pedagogy, he developed novel methods for his various students. As a result, he passed his pedagogical bachelor's degree at the HfMT with top grades.

As a soloist, Reinert has performed, for example, with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Kielce in Poland and the Symphonic Orchestra of the Abruzzi in Italy under the direction of personalities such as Alessandro Crudele or Kent Nagano.
