“A composer-bandleader of insightful resolve.” New York Times (USA)
Born and raised in Germany, trained in New York City and now based in Canada, jazz pianist and composer, Florian Hoefner, draws from a myriad of influences that cumulate in his unique brand of modern jazz. Praised as a “composer-bandleader of insightful resolve” by the New York Times and a “harmonically daring pianist […] reaching toward new sonic territory” by Downbeat, Florian Hoefner has made his mark as an inventive creator and performer of exciting contemporary Jazz.
Since 2018 Florian is working with a new Canadian trio with Andrew Downing on bass and Nick Fraser on drums. The group is performing a completely new repertoire of his originals and arrangements of folk songs from different parts of the world.
