Andreas Wolff, who was born on 16.11.1993, is a German pianist and composer from Coburg. It was not until he was 19 that he discovered playing the piano and found his vocation.

Yet, this was not the beginning of his musical career. Not only was Andreas a DJ for Germany’s biggest Internet radio station for electronic dance music (EDM), but also had many performances in several clubs and major events. A few years later he started to produce electronic dance music and bought a MIDI keyboard. After a short time, he realised that his interest in the keyboard was much bigger than for the production of EDM.

Strongly influenced by film music and his background in electronic dance music, he began and learned to play the piano as an autodidact. At the beginning of 2015, he took piano lessons for the first time in order to prepare himself for the upcoming entrance examination of the vocational school of music in Kronach. From mid-2015 to 2017 he then was trained there in classical piano playing in addition to numerous music-theoretical subjects. With the help of his newly acquired knowledge, he found his way to improvisation and composition. His music is defined by its emotive-atmospheric and elaborate minimalistic style.

In November 2015 he thrilled the Coburg audience with a benefit concert. This was also his debut as a concert pianist. With this concert, he brought his hometown a little closer to the minimalistic piano music and at the same raised money for the good cause.

In 2016 he worked on his first EP “Alone In the Wild”, which was released on 07 January 2017. The following summer he travelled with his piano through Europe to busk on the streets of the cities and bring his music to the people. He thereby spent most of his time in London.

After the tour, he began his studies in October 2017 with his focus on piano and composition at the University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar. During his time there he worked on his second EP “Wayfaring”, which was released on 11 August 2018 with a concert in the Hall of Giants of the Ehrenburg Palace in Coburg.
