I   have   seen   very   few   young   musicians   who   have   impressed   me   as   much   as Christian.   He   is   already   a   beautiful   guitar   player   and   I   am   sure   he   has   a   brilliant future ”,     internationally     renowned     Scottish     guitarist     David     Russell      praised Christian Haimel at his master class 2006.

Following   Christian's   2001   concert   at   the   Vienna   Konzerthaus,   the   Austrian   daily   'Die Presse'    wrote:    “Heaven    knows    it    does    not    happen    every    day    that    a    guitarist    is responsible   for   a   profound   silence   among   the   audience   of   a   Viennese   concert   hall.   The 19-year-old   Christian   Haimel   has   succeeded   in   that   ...   he   conjures   up   subtly   differentiated colours and moods ... he makes his instrument sing.” Christian's   path   with   the   guitar   manifested   itself   early.   After   beginning   to   learn   how   to play   the   guitar   with   Josef   Waidhofer   at   the   age   of   six,   he   then   went   on   to   study   with Marianne   Waidhofer   at   the   Anton   Bruckner   Private   University   of   Linz ;   from   which   he graduated   with   honours   in   2007.   In   2014,   he   completed   the   “Master   en   Interpretación   de Guitarra   Clásica”   winning   the   distinction   of   “Summa   cum   Laude”,   from   the   University   of Alicante in Spain. In   addition   to   his   fabulous   guitar   playing,   Christian   rounded   off   his   musical   education   by   also   studying   classical   voice. He draws a distinct relationship between the knowledge of interpretation, tone production and phrasing. Christian    has    performed    in    masterclasses    by    internationally    renowned    guitarists    such    as    David    Russell,    Manuel Barrueco,   Leo   Brouwer,   Abel   Carlevaro,   and   countless   others.   He   has   performed   as   a   soloist   and   as   a   chamber musician in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, USA, Chile, Spain, South Korea, and Russia.
