At the age of 8, Frin Wolter discovered his passion for the accordion (and the djembe!). At the Luxembourg Conservatory, he also studied piano and became interested in chamber music and acapella singing at an early age. After having passed his 1st prize with distinction in the class of Maurizio Spiridigliozzi, he joined french virtuoso Vincent Lhermet's accordion class the Pôle supérieur de Lille, where he also perfected his writing and analysis skills, discovering there a passion for the French baroque repertoire.

In 2015, culture shock! He moves up north, to Finland, a country known for its progressive teaching methods and for its great accordion culture. At the prestigious Sibelius Academy in Helsinki and with the master Matti Rantanen, he works on the contemporary repertoire as well as Scandinavian and Balkan folk music.

 

Frin Wolter is laureate of several international accordion competitions (Accordé'Opale Competition, Anne and Françoise Groben Prize, Accart Competition...) and regularly collaborates with the contemporary music ensemble "United Instruments of Lucilin". In 2019 he participated in the creation of the opera "The Sleeping Thousand" at the Aix-en-Provence Opera Festival with this ensemble.

 

Invited to the Académie Musicale de Villecroze, he receives the advice of Vincent Peirani, an eminent personality in the world of jazz and world music. Frin studied with many other international accordion personalities including Teodoro Anzellotti, Veli Kujala, Mika Väyrynen, Geir Draugsvull, Mie Miki, Stefan Hussong, Silvain Tissot, Klemen Leben, Ina Hoffmann, Vladimir Blagojevic.
