Notes and Editorial Reviews

Walter Wolff, who was born in Finland, made a big career as a jazz pianist in Holland, where he studied, and elsewhere in Europe. In 2012 Walter Wolff finished his jazz pianist career and moved on to compose classical music. The present album consists of a variety of chamber music composed by Wolff, from a solo viola work to a piano trio. Wolff combines the rhythms of jazz and an improvisational atmosphere with classical music in a stylish way. The album´s mood ranges from lively rhythmics to a peaceful, almost meditative calm. The great musicians playing on the album make the album a very interesting and enjoyable whole. Producer Hein van de Geyn writes: “Watler has impressed me from the first day I heard him play. I sensed his Read more seriousness, his dedication to the music. Walter is playing as a servant of the music, not to jubilate his own ego. This touched me, and still touches me. I am proud that he was able to give us this wonderful album. The music remains.” Read less
