Christoph Broll began his violin and piano lessons when he was only five years old. At 15, he found additional inspiration and security with Mechthild Stein. The piano methods of Carl A. Martiensen and Prof. Max Martin Stein, a protégé of Max Reger, guided the young musician in the course of his studies at the Cologne Music Academy (classic piano) and the Hogeschool vor de Kunsten Arnhem in the Netherlands (jazz violin). For Broll, universal musical styles convey authentic and spiritual power.
Since 1995, Christoph Broll has served as Musical Director for many different high-profile events, trade fair and variety shows. He works with the directors Thomas Bruchhäuser and Christian Eggert on these events.

The three powerful violin virtuosos Mani Neumann of farfarello, Klaus, the violinist from Cologne, and Christoph Broll liked each other and each other’s individual musical styles from the very first meeting. So it was only a small step to joint improvisations in order to discover the music of the moment. Their goal: Showing their improvisations without any sheet music or prior coordination. Guitarist Ulli Brand (farfarello) supported the 3 violinists at their performances. Following their legendary “1 € Cult Concert" at Cologne's Lutherkirche (south), the renowned Cologne author Dieter Wellershoff dedicated a wonderful and fitting poetic creation called "Ins Sein gelangen" (Coming into being) to the project.
