Tim Allhoff Tim Allhoff

When audiences and critics speak about Tim Allhoff, they all sound euphoric. There is talk of the “piano shooting star of the Republic (of Germany)” (JazzThing) or the “most important newcomer of Germany’s jazz scene”. And yet, Allhoff, born in 1980, completed classical piano studies before turning to jazz piano at the Richard-Strauß-Conservatory in Munich. With his growing passion for jazz he gathered experiences in many different formations and earned his reputation across Europe: Concerts and tours brought him i.a. to France, England, the Netherlands, Austria and Switzerland. He has played the Rheingau Music Festivel, the Elbjazz-Festival or the Palatia Jazz Festival and many more. Additionally he has worked with icons like Nils Landgren, Larry Grenadier, Johannes Enders, Dieter Ilg and Tony Lakatos. He has arranged and composed music for stage and film (“Das letzte Schweigen”, 2009) and was musical director from 2009 to 2011 at Ingolstadt Theater. His extraordinary talent is mirrored in his many awards: The pianist was awarded the Bavarian advancement award of the arts (2013), the jazz award of Ingolstadt and the advancement award of the arts of Augsburg. As if that weren’t enough: In 2008 he founded his own trio together with award-winning bassist Andreas Kurz, and Bastian Hütte, one of Germany’s jazz scene’s most versatile drummers. These two earned their experiences on international stages and festivals next to stars like Johannes Enders, Jamie Cullum, Michael Wollny or Klaus Doldinger

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
