Walter Wolff

Walter Wolff (Helsinki, Finland 1981), moved to the Netherlands in 2003 where he studied piano with Juraj Stanik, Rob van Kreeveld and Albert Brussee. In 2009 he graduated with honours from the conservatory of the Hague. He also studied privately with Brad Mehldau in New York City. Walter's refined feel for harmony as well as strong and lyrical treatment of melodies has earned him the reputation as one of the most exciting and original musicians on the younger Dutch jazz scene today.

He performs regularly with trio Wolff/Angiuli/Fryland, the Eef van Breen Group and does occasional solo-piano concerts and tours.
