Kéler studied the violin informally before moving to Vienna in 1845, where he joined the orchestra of the Theater an der Wien. He spent most of his career as a conductor, leading ensembles in Berlin, Vienna, and Wiesbaden. Although working outside of Hungary, Kéler never adopted a German name, and composed numerous works on Hungarian themes. Brahms based one of his Hungarian Dances on Kéler's Bártfai emlék, op. 31.
