TELDERMAN, pianist & composer
North Sea Jazz on pianist Rogier Telderman:
“Telderman is one of Europe’s major new jazz musicians. He is able to blend together influences from jazz, classical, and pop in a completely original way, thus creating a unique personal style. This can be heard clearly on his highly acclaimed debut album Contours (2015). Pianist Telderman is particularly well known for his beautiful melody lines and the emotional depth of his music. Moreover, his playing is warm, lyrical, technically sublime and dares to seek contact with the audience during concerts.”
I believe in the ability of music to transcend cultural differences and connect with people. I aim to connect with new local audiences for my projects: TELDERMAN trio, Baldych-Courtois-Telderman, and TELDERMAN man vs machine. I’m creating opportunities for new music in the Netherlands, and am interested to collaborate with partners willing to do the same.
