Press quotes on the album

‘The Silent Ones’:

“In a dozen compositions Maiwald creates a compelling piece balancing between tradition and now that is full of melody, harmony and rhythm." Serge Julien, Cultuurpodium Online

“With his new CD “The Silent Ones” Wolfgang Maiwald proves to be a skillful, lyrical, melody-loving pianist who has captured his place in Europe’s first division of Jazz-pianists.”

Klaas Koopman, Jazz journalist, The Netherlands

“With his sophisticated touché Maiwald confidently exhibits theme’s and improvises particularly beautiful and inspired.”

Mattie Poels, Dutch jazz blog Musicframes

“The new album ‘The Silent Ones’ prominently places Maiwald and his trio on the map in the Dutch and International jazz scene."

Mathilde Löffler, Dutch jazz blog Jazzenzo

“Considerate, jet lyrical and virtuous, Maiwald forms a strong combination with bass player Guus Bakker and drummer Pim Dros.“

Angelique van Os, Dutch jazz magazine Jazzism

“With the debut album already earning wide critical acclaim, his second album Maiwald particularly emphasizes his own sound.”

Mark van Rikxoort, Dutch jazz blog JazzContrasten

“With both excellent compositions and sophisticated playing Maiwald shows to be a master at work.”

“There’s a big element of surprise on this beautiful production. The whole therefore remains fresh and energetic.”

Bob van Eekhoud, jazz journalist, The Netherlands

“As a Jazz pianist and composer myself, I am adding Wolfgang to my list of favourite players like Fred Hersch, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett. I’m greatly impressed by the developments in his melodic, harmonic and rhythmical approach. This CD reveals a piano player who has found his own, original way of writing and playing Jazz. Enjoy!”

Jan Huydts, jazz pianist and former Director of Jazz Studies of the Hilversum Conservatory of Music (now Amsterdam Conservatory), The Netherlands
