Christoph Stiefel | Back

Born in Zurich in 1961, Christoph Stiefel studied classical piano as a child, but as a teenager became more involved in R'n'B and fusion, going on to record two albums with his own funk band Stiletto.

From 1984 he spent five years touring the world with crossover harpist Andreas Vollenweider. which brought him into contact with many jazz musicians, and by the early '90s he had formed his own 'Inner Language Trio', which has been his main musical priority ever since. His playing is particularly notable for its rhythmic complexity, which has led to his being described as "like Esbjorn Svensson, only quirkier".
