Fingal Grünbauer

Pianist / (Classical) Musician

Fingal Grünbauer on SoundBetter

I have a versatile repertoire, and I'd love to work on something new with you! Let's great a masterwork!

Hello, thank you for checking out my profile!
I'm a pianist located in the middle of the Netherlands, I've played the piano for 9+ years.
I really enjoy playing the piano and hope to make amazing collaborations with whoever wants and is compatible!

These can consist of albums with our own pieces/songs, or collaborations on particular songs. I'd also love to collaborate with singers if they want to use any of my releases as music for their lyrics. The same goes for remix of releases (preferably of my modern covers instead of classical pieces, but that's disputable) . Check out my YouTube channel/Spotify artist profile for my repertoire (these are not complete, as I haven't released everything yet). You can always contact me for all questions you may have!

I look forward to working with you.

Interview with Fingal Grünbauer

  1. Q: Is there anyone on SoundBetter you know and would recommend to your clients?

  2. A: I've had great contact with Raphaël Novarina; he made amazing pieces and is/was looking for pianists to perform them.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: Make an audio/visual performance of scores they have made.

  5. Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

  6. A: If you're still hesitating, just contact the provider you're thinking of. It can never hurt, and you never know how it'll turn out.

  7. Q: If you were on a desert island and could take just 5 pieces of gear, what would they be?

  8. A: A cornucopia, a way to contact my family and friends, a camera, a Spotify account where every song has been downloaded on and a Steinway & Sons grand piano :)

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: Both :) Digital is straightforward, analog is nostalgic. The combination of both creates the word amazing.

  11. Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?

  12. A: To deliver the best I can!

  13. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  14. A: Only release something when you're completely satisfied with it. When I started, I wanted to release as much as possible, and the quality took a hit because of that. Now, I focus on the quality instead of how much I release.

  15. Q: What are you working on at the moment?

  16. A: Multiple pieces actually. I released a cover of Billie Eilish's 'when the party's over' some time ago, now I'm focussing on two pieces by Raphaël Novarina, a few OST' from Hotel Del Luna and a set of current songs I like to cover.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: I'd love to be a pianist for BTS, because they and their music really has helped me and has helped a lot of others. I find their music very empowering, and I'd love to be part of that!

  19. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  20. A: It varies a lot, from classical pieces to modern-day covers. Lately I work on classical pieces from composer such as Chopin and Schubert as well as covers of songs from artists like Billie Eilish and BTS.

  21. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  22. A: I take great inspiration from pianists such as Valentina Lisitsa, Tiffany Poon and Lang Lang.

  23. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  24. A: I have been playing the piano for 7+ years, and I have never stopped loving it!

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  26. A: I use a Maeari grand piano with a duo of microphones.

  27. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  28. A: I think the emotion I put in the pieces is what really improves the end-result.

  29. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  30. A: It's a way for me to release my emotions. If I am sad, I can play songs that resonate with that felling, and the same goes with if I'm happy, angry, melancholic, in love, any emotion really.

  31. Q: What's your typical work process?

  32. A: I study a piece until I'm satisfied with how it sounds and feels. Then I record it, and it eventually will be released and it has been mixed and fine-tuned.
