Born in Hamburg, tenor Florian Sievers gained his first singing experience with the Chorknaben Uetersen. After studying school music, he studied singing with Berthold Schmid at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Leipzig, where he graduated as a master student with distinction in 2021 and now lives as a freelance singer.

Establishing himself as a soloist at a young age quickly developed into an international concert career that now takes him regularly to major music centres, including the Berlin Philharmonie, Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Laeiszhalle Hamburg, Dresden Philharmonie, Musikfest Bremen, Musikfest Stuttgart, Händel-Festspiele Halle, MDR Musiksommer, Bachfeste Leipzig, Ansbach, Arnstadt, Eisenach, Arques-la-Bataille, Schaffhausen, Gewandhaus Leipzig, Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, DeSingel Antwerp, Bozar Brussels, Concertgebouw Bruges, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Auditorio Nacional de Música Madrid, Teatro Real Madrid, Palau de la Música Catalana Barcelona, Teatro de la Maestranza Sevilla, Grand Auditorium de la Maison de Radio France Paris, to name but a few. Highlights of the 2022/23 season were his US debut with works by Handel and Bach at the Boston Early Music Festival, Mozart's "C Minor Mass" with the B'Rock Orchestra in The Hague, Brussels and Antwerp and Beethoven's 9th Symphony in Sønderborg, Denmark. In 2024 Florian Sievers will be heard as the Evangelist in Bach's "St John Passion" with the RIAS Chamber Choir and the Akademie für Alte Musik under Justin Doyle in Berlin and Paris.

Florian Sievers has performed with conductors such as Jordi Savall, Frieder Bernius, Lionel Meunier, Wolfgang Katschner, Rudolf Lutz (Bachstiftung St. Gallen), as well as with orchestras such as the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Dresdner Philharmoniker, Sønderjyllands Symfonieorkester, B'Rock Orchestra, Lautten Compagney, Freiburger Barockorchester, Nederlandse Bachvereniging, Concerto Köln or Hamburger Symphoniker.

Opera productions have a high priority in his work. In the opera "J. S. Bach - The Apocalypse" (production: Opera2Day with the Netherlands Bach Society), which premiered in 2022, he will also sing the leading role of Jan van Leyden in over 20 performances in the Netherlands and Germany in 2024, including at the Royal Theatre The Hague, the Royal Theatre Carré in Amsterdam and the Bachfest Leipzig. While still a student, he was engaged as a guest in residence at the Chemnitz Opera in 2019-2021, where he performed the role of Pedrillo in Mozart's "Abduction from the Seraglio", among others.

As a sought-after lied singer, he can be heard regularly with innovative programmes, including with Ragna Schirmer in the Small Hall of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg (2019). In 2021 he initiated the experimental project Schubertlied.Salon, in which he arranged Franz Schubert's famous "Erlkönig" for two electric guitars and voice, among other works.

Numerous CD, video and radio recordings with works from the Baroque to Classical-Romantic pieces to contemporary opera testify to the singer's knowledge of style and great repertoire diversity. Two recordings with the ensemble Ælbgut were awarded the German Record Critics' Prize ("Leipzig 1723") and the Opus Klassik ("St. John Passion 1725").
