Austrian born pianist, composer, and Steinway Artist, Markus Gottschlich belongs to the young lions of the Florida jazz scene. Like his own life story, Markus’ music reflects unique blend of “old world” and “new world.” In his captivating live performances, his lyricism and technique contribute to his highly-individual sound.

Markus’ debut solo album in 2008, When the Day is Done, received tremendous critical acclaim. For his sophomore album, Of Places Between, released in the summer of 2013, Markus teamed up with Grammy Award-winning musician Federico Britos and Jose Javier Freire. The global flavor with which his music is infused reveals an artistic journey that stretches far beyond his Austrian roots.

Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, Markus grew up in what was once Beethoven’s apartment. After receiving a classical piano education from an early age on, he started exploring Jazz and moved to the US where he attended Admiral Farragut Academy, Concordia College- NY, and graduated from Western Connecticut State University.

Markus currently serves as the Artistic Director of the Miami Beach Jazz Festival. He keeps a busy schedule performing and conducting clinics in the US and Europe, while working on new compositions and commissioned works.

“His exquisite technique, combined with a passion for jazz, created an intimate and cathartic atmosphere at the Olympia theater. The many nuances of his notes led the audience to experience all the states of the soul, reason enough to achieve one of the biggest ovations of the evening on Saturday.” – EFE USA

“The piano is an extension of Markus Gottschlich’s personality as truly as the trumpet was a conduit for Dizzy Gillespie’s voice. And the guitar is another appendage that Eric Clapton was born with so naturally in his hands. Nobody could imagine either Gillespie or Clapton without their instruments, which is something that both men have in common with Gottschlich.” – Jazzreveiw.com

“…elegant, melodically remarkable idea”- The Standard, Austria

“Pianist Markus Gottschlich is poised to become one of the country’s leading jazz performers.”- Miami Magazine

“What cannot be debated is Gottschlich’s skill as a player and a painter emotion via music… the nine selections feel much longer because of the wealth of detail, the constant surprise, and the depth of emotion that is present in virtually every moment.”- AllAboutJazz.com

BRING YOUR OWN … WHATEVER! Both the Stuart & Shelby Theater and the Robert & Linda Schmier Black Box Theater boast cabaret style table seating, where patrons can bring their own food and drinks, including alcohol.
